Junior Golf is extremely important to the Nippo Lake Team, however, the safety and well- being of children on the course is even more important. Because of this, we have created policies that will limit the opportunity for child safety issues to occur.
ANYONE ON THE GOLF COURSE must be a Member or paying Guest. If you have a
Non-Golfer that is under the age of 18, you must adhere to the following:
- CHILDREN AGES 3 & UNDER ARE NOT PERMITTED ON THE GOLF COURSE
- STROLLERS AND/OR CART SEATS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE GOLF COURSE
- CHILDREN AGE 4+ THAT ARE NOT GOLFING MUST RIDE IN A CART AND REMAIN IN THE CART UNDER THE SAFETY OF THE ROOF AT ALL TIMES
- NO MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN A CART AT ALL TIMES
- ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 IS NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE A CART
If any of the above is not followed, you will be asked to leave. Thank you.
Cart Path Only
Please keep all four wheels of your golf car on the designated cart path at all times. Drive IN the potholes - NOT around them. Potholes are as important to us as divots on the tees and we fill them weekly. A pothole can be repaired in a very short time, but the turf injury caused by going around them takes weeks to heal.
This rule may apply to all 18 holes or just a few holes on any given day. Please adhere to posted signs.
Our golf course is the same as your home lawn. When you get home after work, or golf, we are sure you don't park on yours, so please don't park on ours.
90 Degree Rule
The 90-degree Rule means that we are allowing carts onto the grass - but only at 90-degree angles from the cart path. In other words, don't drive the golf cart up the middle of the fairway from the tee box to your golf ball. Stay on the cart path until you are level with your golf ball, then make a 90-degree turn off the cart path and drive straight across to the ball. This minimizes the time a golf cart spends rolling over the grass, while still allowing convenience for golfers.
It is the responsibility of all players, amateur or pro, to repair ball marks.
If we have 25,000 rounds per year, there is the potential for players to make 450,000 ball marks per year. Under the right conditions, even a short-range chip shot will leave a ball mark. A repaired ball mark will heal in half the time. Please repair yours and any others you may see.
Everyone at some point will make a divot. When they happen to be playing with Steve, some of them will apologize. You don't need to apologize, just replace or fill it. Divot containers are provided on golf cars & teeing grounds, please use all of the mix you need. Steve was once asked, “Does that stuff really help?” His reply, "Only if you use it."
