USGA Pace System
Forming A `Pace Of Play' Committee
To plan and implement a pace of play program at your course, the USGA recommends that you form a Pace of Play Committee.
The committee could be made up of golfers or members of your golf committee, as well as members of management, such as your director of golf, head golf professional, general manager, course superintendent, and marshal/ranger. The Pace of Play Committee could install a pace of play program and continue to meet in the future to monitor and follow up on the program.
A pace of play program could include:
Adoption of the USGA Pace Rating. Time par is a bright new approach to solving what has been many courses' most intractable problem: slow play.
Communication to your players. Several products and services are available for conveying practical tips to players on how to be ready to hit when it's their turn. These resources are cited in the manual.
Course management techniques. Your course can be set up and managed to help players achieve time par. This manual mentions several maintenance, design, and supervisory ideas and gives you leads on learning about others.
Follow-up efforts. These may involve training programs for new players or slow players, or a system of rewards for players who meet pace of play standards.
