Speed of Play – the 45 Second Rule
The Burlington Golf and Country Club produced a video called “The 45 Second Rule”. The video is under 4 minutes long and I feel strongly that every member should watch the video. It addresses speed of play and really is as simple as getting ready to throw when your turn is coming up. It spells out how to do it and what all the players on the team should be doing to get ready.
BCGC members have said that it has made a big difference to their whole club’s speed of play and they are getting more 8 end games completed then ever before.
Please take the 4 minutes, click on the link and watch the short YouTube video, if we can get all our members following this simple advice it will make a huge difference to our club’s speed of play.
