Keeping a reasonable pace and practicing good course etiquette will create safe, enjoyable and fun playing conditions for all. Scores can also improve with better concentration and consistency between shots.
A foursome tees off every eight minutes. When groups follow a consistent pace this spread is maintained. Play gets backed when groups fall 10 or more minutes behind. Being polite and waving quicker groups through actually slows down the pace of play, with those behind still held up waiting to play.
