Longue Vue Club Course Rules
All players should familiarize themselves with and observe the rules and etiquette of golf at all times. USGA rules are in effect, except when modified by local rules found on the LVC scorecard and/or posted on the board at the first tee.
- Members and
guests must register at the Pro Shop before play.
- All play starts from the
first tee. Only the Golf Professional may grant permission to start on a
hole other than the first tee.
- Members must register
guests at the Pro Shop and inform their guests of our desired pace of play,
cell phone use regulations, dress code, and required use of locker rooms to
change clothes and shoes.
- Guests are allowed full
access to the range and practice facilities on the day that they are invited to
Pace of Play
- The maximum
playing time is 4 hours and 15 minutes.
- Invite faster players to
play through when there is at least one complete hole open ahead. Players
searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play
through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not be easily be found.
- On hole #12: Players on the tee and ready to play through to an open green have
priority; players taking refreshments at the 12th tee should yield to the group
ready to play through.
- If a player believes his
ball may be lost outside a water hazard or is out of bounds, to save time, he
should play a provisional ball.
Care of the Course
- Repair all
divot holes (either with replacement of the divot, if possible, or with
sand/seed mixture from a golf cart, if riding). Repair all
ball marks on greens’ surfaces.

all cart-directional signage (including signs and posts) regarding movement of
golf carts, particularly within 30+-yards of all greens complexes.
