Standing Rules


A member must establish a handicap with the WLPGA or another association. The member is to pay before play & must play by the USGA Rules. If she does not follow the Rules during a round, she must disqualify herself from the competition, but will still pay the sweeps.

A player may choose to take her allowed maximum score per hole (see "Equitable Stroke Control") on any hole and disqualify herself from the competition.

Potential Members

A potential member is allowed to play at a Pro Shop discount on our regular play day for a reasonable number of times to be determined by TCOM.

No Show Policy

If there is a member who is late for her tee time or is a "no show" on play days, TCOM will bring the matter to the Board, which will assess the situation and determine the consequences.

Local Rule: Distance Measuring Devices

A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If during a stipulated round, a player uses a device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, elevation, wind-speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used. Effective January 1, 2007.

Local Rule: Green side Sprinkler Heads Relief of Line of Play
