Player Information

A Perfect Swing, Inc. provides a non-competitive and competitive environment for individuals to learn and enjoy the game of golf.  This is an opportunity for individuals that have considered playing golf, as well as for those that are already playing golf, to come together, network, and share in the fun of playing the game.  You are responsible for your own fees charged by the facility.  The golf course is chosen randomly, so participants have the opportunity to request that outings be held at their favorite golf course.  


Play Categorization

Play is categorized into three types: Range, Networking, and Individual.


"Range" Play   During range play, attendees meet at a driving range to practice. Where the competition is just between you and the ball. This is a great opportunity to network and meet others that are interested in the game of golf. Each attendee is responsible for purchasing their own balls. This activity is open to beginners, intermediate, and advance players.       


“Networking” Play    During networking play, the attendees meet to play the game of golf at a golf course.  The “scramble” form of play will be used.  This will give attendees an opportunity to get experience playing on the course in a non-competitive environment.  This is a very common format used in charity golf tournaments and networking events, so attendees will have an opportunity to prepare for these types of situations.  Each attendee is responsible for all golf course fees.   This activity is open to beginners, intermediate, and advance players.       


What is the “scramble” format?   Golflink.com describes the scramble format as a format that involves four golfers playing as a team. Each player tees off and the team selects the best shot. Players then take their next shots from there. This continues until a ball is sunk. All holes are played this way. A scramble speeds up pace of play and allows players of all levels to compete with each other. Read more about this subject on their website by clicking here.


"Individual" Play    During individual play, attendees meet to play the game of golf at a golf course. All attendees will play their own balls.  You will need to have a handicap of less than 25 to play on these days. Each attendee is responsible for all golf course fees.  This activity is open to intermediate and advance players.

Standards of Play

Preparation  

  • All participants should arrive with a spirit of fellowship through professional networking, while sharing in a non-competitive golf environment.  
  • All participants should wear golf attire.  No jeans or t-shirts.  A collared shirt is requested; however there are some acceptable shirts that do not have a collar.  
  • Participants should arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the posted tee time, to ensure a timely tee off.  Participants should be standing at the first hole at the tee time, unless modified by a facility representative or event organizer.  
  • All participants are encouraged to arrive 30-40 minutes prior to the tee time, in order to participate in physical/swing warmups at the driving range.  
  • All participants should inventory their golfing equipment prior to going to the first tee, to ensure you have what you need. Always have a ball marker.  
  • Participants should put a unique identifying mark on each of their balls.  
  • Obtain cart/fairway/greens update from facility representative or event organizer.

During Play  

  • The USGA rules state that you have 3-5 minutes to look for a lost ball; however because of the pace of play at most courses, this time frame would cause a delay. If a ball cannot be found within 1-2 minutes, initiate a drop and continue play toward the green. If there is a group waiting on you, please wave them through and allow them to play.  
  • While on the green, never walk over another golfer’s line.  To determine this line, draw an imaginary line from the ball to the hole.  
  • When a golfer is putting, other golfers should ensure that their shadow is not in the putter’s line.  
  • Please prepare to take a group photo at the beginnin of the round.  
  • Lines of communication to better understand golf and standards of play is always open for discussion and better understanding within every APSGA event.

On the Course   

  • There is a double par rule in effect during play. For example, if the hole is a par 4, once you have hit 8 times, you should pick up your ball, await for the others in your group to finish, and then continue to next hole.  It may be a good idea to pick up your ball at double par minus 2 and take two putts on the green for additional practice. If a golfer finds that they rarely make it to the green within the allotted strokes, please consider participating in Golf 102.
  • Please limit your practice swings to 2.  Your setup over the ball should be a maximum of 15 seconds.  
  • Play “Ready” golf.  In normal play, the person furthest away from the hole goes first. Because of the pace of play, we ask that all golfers prepare to play as quickly as possible and any prepared golfer should play their shot as soon as possible.  
  • Golfers should not talk, walk, or make noise once a golfer approaches their ball and prepare to hit.  
  • Golfers should not stand within two club lengths of the golfer that is hitting.
  • Be a ball spotter for fellow golfers while they are hitting. Once the ball lands, identify an unmovable object close to the ball and call it out.  
  • The participant whose ball lands on the green first, should tend the flagstick and remove it once everyone’s ball is on the green.  
  • Repair your divots and rake sand traps.  
  • It’s a good idea to make a habit of marking your ball once it lands on the green, to prevent any interference with someone else’s putt.  
  • Limit your stop at the turn (typically between holes 9 and 10) to five minutes
