Riverwalk Golf Club Launches “Pace of Play”

In an effort to improve the overall Riverwalk golfing experience, we've introduced Pace of Play Pledges for both golfers and Riverwalk staff.

We will work diligently to enforce the various pledges and educate new and existing members about Pace of Play in an effort to reinforce an excellent golf experience for all.
          
Golfer Pledges


As Riverwalk golfers, we want you to feel empowered to take part in creating a consistently enjoyable golf experience, and enforce Pace of Play pledges politely while on the course. The various Riverwalk Golfer pledges are as follows:

  • Play ready golf: This pledge is important, as it'll help everyone flow through the course smoothly. This means hitting when you're ready, and putting-out on greens. This also means no “Honors System.”
  • Allow others to play through: When a smaller group is coming up behind you—or if a group is simply faster, allow them to play through. Keeping pace with the group ahead of you will also help ensure larger groups are able to enjoy their time without creating a traffic jam for others
  • Play appropriate tees based on ability, or play it forward: Not every hole is going to be right for every golfer. Golfers may want to tweak their experience based upon their level of ability—for example, skipping holes that may be too easy or difficult. Golfers may also “TEE IT FORWARD”by choosing the best tee box, improving on the pace of play, and creating a more enjoyable round.
  • Educate playing partners on pace of play: We encourage you, as Riverwalk golfers, to educate those playing with you about the Pace of Play pledges.
  • Think ahead: Being prepared for your next shot is essential in keeping up with the pace of play. Be prepared before your next shot, have your club in hand, and be ready to swing!

 Riverwalk Course Pledges

We're dedicated to doing all that we can to ensure the pace of play runs smoothly for everyone. In doing so, we've created a few pledges of our own:

  • Encourage education and awareness on “Play ready golf”: We pledge to dedicate ourselves to improving the experience for Riverwalk golfers, raising awareness about Pace of Play, and educating new and existing golfers and staff members about Pace of Play.
  • Correct course markings: We pledge to ensure that course markings are accurate throughout the course, including markings for lateral hazards, drop zones, and grounds under repair.
  • Educate Staff: From staff ambassadors to beverage cart attendants, all employees are now being trained to act as the eyes and ears of the course. They will participate in upholding the pace of play by acting as golf course monitors.
  • Gimme Grill: Introducing the new Gimme Grill at the turn will help encourage faster food service for all.
  • Add GPS to golf carts: We want everyone to have the best experience possible—and that means equipping our golf carts with GPS navigation systems. With a gorgeous birds-eye view of the entire course, you’ll never get lost looking for a hole again!

Would you like to experience the new pace of play at Riverwalk? We’d be happy to schedule a tee time with you online!
