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:
- Online - starting at 6:30 A.M. at www.longshoregolfcourse.com
Before making your tee time, please note JUNIOR restrictions.
A resident with a current Golf Handpass making a tee time on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or holiday must play in that tee time.
Day of play reservations may be made online up to one hour before the desired tee time.
Tee time reservations for play Monday thru Thursday ONLY can be obtained up to 4 days in advance starting at 6:30 A.M. online at www.longshoregolfcourse.com.
Before making your tee time, please note JUNIOR restrictions.
Day of play reservations are available online 7 days a week. Guest/Non golf handpass holder will pay the applicable guest fee.
Cancellations or changes of tee time reservations are permitted until 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.
A current Golf Handpass holder may book tee times for 8-20 players up to 90 days in advance Monday through Thursday during peak season. Peak season is defined as May 1st through September 30th. During non-peak season, current Golf Handpass holders may book tee times for 8-40 players Monday through Friday. Availability for tee times is strictly at the discretion of the pro shop and may not interfere with club block times or charity outings.
Golf Handpass holders playing in a small group event will pay their respective rates. Non-handpass holders will pay guest rates. A final count of players must be submitted to the pro shop 7 days in advance. At that point, the group is responsible for the number of players in that count. Failure to contact the pro shop will result in responsibility for the original number of players booked. Any no shows will be charged at the adult guest rate unless the pro shop is able to fill those times with public play.
