Tee Time Policies and Procedures

TEE TIMES and RESERVATIONS

Tee times are every nine (9) minutes.  The official time is the clock installed at the 1st tee.  All members of the group must be present, signed in with the starter, and ready to tee off twenty minutes before their exact tee time.  The starter will reassign times of those who fail to present themselves twenty minutes before their exact tee time.

Tee times may be reserved for twosomes, threesomes, or foursomes.  Singles may book into open tee times but may not open a tee time.

Only one tee time may be reserved for any person per day.  Any players wishing to play more than one round in a day may do so at the discretion of the starter.

The starter is obliged to fill twosomes and threesomes when players are available.  The starter may, if necessary, reschedule the starting time of a twosome in order to facilitate the flow of play on the 1st tee.

 

Tee time reservations can be obtained up to 5 days in advance as follows:

Before making your tee time, please note JUNIOR restrictions.

Day of play reservations may be made by calling the pro shop at (203) 226-9785.

Before making your tee time, please note JUNIOR restrictions.

 

Cancellations or changes of tee time reservations are permitted until on the day before play. Failure to make changes or cancellations prior to that period will result in a no show charge of $25 per player for 18 hole reservations or $20 per player for 9 hole or after 4 PM reservations. This fee will be charged to the credit card of the player who reserved the tee time. No show charge will be waived if the starter is able to fill the tee time.

Walk-up play will be accommodated at the discretion of the starter on a first come first served basis.
