USGA: If any point in dispute is not covered by the rules, the decision should be made in accordance with equity.

Poor attendance may result in loss of league prizes and/or dismissal from the league.

Rain Out/Inclement Weather Policy: USGA Rule 6-8
"Bad weather is not itself a good reason for discontinuing play."
League will not be cancelled prior to the scheduled league time. Exception if course is already closed for play.
Otherwise, a decision to discontinue play will be made at the league's scheduled start time or during play.
(Rationale: In previous seasons, we have missed too many nights of play guessing on what weather will be at league time.)
If cancelled then all matches will be cancelled. There will be no make ups. (See each league's specific rule).

Pace of Play:
New USGA Rules:
 - Ball search is limited to 3 minutes
 - Putt with Pin in Cup - No Penalty. (ENCOURAGED)
 - ​Make your stroke within 40 seconds of being able to play.
 - A Players maximum score is capped at double that of par per hole.
PLAY OUT OF TURN. This Saves time!
HIT FIRST, THEN HELP SEARCH.
 ​This Saves time!
HIT FIRST, THEN TALK. This Saves time!
TIGHTEN YOUR PRE-SHOT ROUTINE. Keep it to 1 practice swing.
BE READY TO PLAY. Get the pre-shot stuff done and be ready when it's your turn.
PLAN AHEAD.
 Park the cart & drop extra clubs in route to the next tee.

Committee may institute a Pace of Play Policy for any league with maximum times to complete
a round, a hole or series of holes and a stoke, and may set penalties for not following the policy.
