Golf Attire:  Please notice that all golfers at PCC are expected to adhere to the Club’s regulations regarding proper attire.  Players are required to observe good taste and dress appropriately for the golf course and practice facility.  The following criteria must be met before using the Flourtown and St. Martin’s facilities:

· No denim or warm-up suits.

· Long pants (except cargo pants) or Bermuda length shorts (bottom of shorts may be no higher than 3 inches from the top of the knee) are required.

Quality of Play:  The Wissahickon course should be played in 4 hours or less; the Militia Hill course should be played in 4 hours and 20 minutes or less.

Speed of play may be monitored for compliance with this standard. Specific information on this program to monitor the speed of play is available in the Golf Shop. Chronic "slow players" may suffer a loss of playing privileges. The following tips are designed to keep play at an enjoyable pace:

· Do not waste time looking for lost balls. Five minutes looking is the maximum allowable time. Play a provisional ball when a possibility exists that a ball may be lost.

· Observe both the players in front of you and behind you as a measure of your speed of play. Keep up with the players in front of you. You must allow faster players to play through if one hole is open in front of you. You should always allow faster players to play through when the speed of play is lagging behind the required pace.

· When using golf carts, leave the golf cart with the appropriate clubs to play the shot.  When in doubt, take several clubs.

· Do not replay missed putts. When finished putting, leave the green and mark the scorecards on the next tee. Continuous putting is encouraged.
