It's actually 30 feet from greens, 10 yards.

We played yesterday and I brought some polo shirts with me from home. Had them from when I use to work. We played Chula Vista and it was a nice little course that was perfect for us. Mostly groups of 2 playing.

I'm guessing you are an offender of those rules or someone mentioning it wouldn't bother you.

There's a right way and a wrong way to do things and both take about the same time and effort.

Simple rules to follow but must be for the other golfers and not them.
Could be handicapped like me. I hope to reach a lvl where I can play. Maybe a couple of courses should cater to the handicapped. That would be cool for we who could enjoy without interfering with real humans lol.

The golf cart path was designed for the golfer. The rule used to be park in the center of the cart path , others like the ambassadors driving backwards should drive around you. PS: stay away from driving near the upper side of a sand trap!

Yes, the fake handicap golf sticker that doctors pass out like candy on Halloween. If you got handicap you should already have one. That should be the basic for handicap on golf course, not special doctors hand out. You know who you are. Not directed at you but the faker’ s.

A person must have a valid handicap placard issued by the state of Florida authorized by their physician in order to apply for a Course Access Pass.
