Divot & Ball Mark Repairs
It is the player’s responsibility to properly repair all ball marks on greens, and replace divots when practical. Avoid twisting and scraping of spikes on the green.

Playing with the Club’s Golf Professionals
When scheduling permits, Members enjoy the opportunity to play a round of golf with one of the Club’s Golf Professionals. In such a situation, it is customary for the Member to cover the Golf Professional’s caddie fees.

Stopping at the Turn
To maintain a continuous flow, all players should limit their time at the turn. A group should only take a few minutes for a brief restroom break, a beverage and a snack “to go”. A telephone at the 8th green should be used to expedite orders with the Snack Bar. Players who stop for lunch will forfeit their turn on the 10th tee and will have to wait until a vacant spot becomes available in order to continue their round.

Guests

Members are limited to one guest per Member prior to 10:00 a.m. on weekends (Saturdays & Sundays) and holidays.

If you are currently a Member of a club with an established USGA handicap, please advise a member of the golf staff and give them your GHIN number.

As a golfer you may already be in the NCGA system. If you would like to add Mayacama as a “Home Club” a $40 fee will be billed to your account annually (subject to change). If you are not currently in the NCGA system the join fee is $46 for the first year, and $36 there after.

Hole-In-One Insurance Rules & Regulations

As a golf member you will be automatically enrolled in Hole in One Insurance. Please contact the Golf Shop if you wish to opt out.

Members of Mayacama 25 years of age and over are signed up for the hole-in-one insurance unless they opt out. Once you opt out, the insurance will be removed permanently. You do not have to opt out every year.

They will be charged $5.00 every time a member with the insurance makes a hole-in-one.
The amount awarded to the lucky member will be split between golf shop credit, drinks in the restaurant, and a hole-in-one plaque.

Each hole-in-one must be witnessed by at least one other golfer. One of the witnesses must be 18 years of age or older.

The golfer must complete a 9-hole round in which the hole-in-one occurred to validate the hole-in-one and receive the club credits.

The member who made the hole-in-one and the witness must sign the scorecard, and then turn into the Golf Professional Staff. If the hole-in-one was made after the Golf Shop is closed, the next day will suffice.

Juniors

While the Club encourages and promotes junior golf, please be reminded that children under sixteen years of age are not allowed to use the golf facilities unless supervised by an adult, and/or certified by the Golf Professional Staff as knowledgeable and schooled in golf course etiquette and rules. Juniors, sixteen years of age and over, are permitted to play the course and use the practice facility unaccompanied, provided that they display proper etiquette while on the premises. All juniors must wear proper golf attire when using the Club facilities. Juniors should avoid playing at peak times. Junior Golfers under the age of 16 may not participate in Club Tournaments and Championships unless specifically designed for Junior Golfers.

Locker Rooms

Changing clothes and shoes should take place in respective locker rooms rather than in the Club parking lot. At this time all golf lockers are shared. Please be considerate of your locker mate by storing minimum items in a neat and tidy manner. All children under the age of sixteen must be accompanied by an adult, eighteen years and of age or older when using the Club Locker Room facilities.

Pace of Play

Mayacama Golf Club places a high priority on pace of play. It is the responsibility of all players not only to maintain a proper pace of play for themselves, but also for their group. Here at Mayacama, we have a time par for playing 18 holes as listed below. Our caddies will monitor your pace beginning when the first ball is struck from the first tee, and let your group know how you are doing relative to your pace at four separate “check-points”. A general rule of thumb, please keep up with the group in front of you.

  Start Time 4th Hole 9th Hole 14th Hole 18th Hole
Four-Ball 0:00 0:56 2:08 3:17 4:15
Three-Ball 0:00 0:53 2:03 3:07 4:00
Two-Ball 0:00 0:50 1:58 2:57 3:45

The Golf Professionals are present to control the pace of play, enforce any special rules pertaining to certain golf course conditions and golf car restrictions. They have full authority on the course to enforce the Rules and Regulations set forth by the Club. Please follow their directives.

Practice Balls

Practice balls are for use on the practice facility only. Practice balls are not permitted to be used on the course at any time. Any Member or their guest found using practice balls on the golf course will have their playing privileges suspended for a period of time.

Practice Facility

Balls must be hit from designated areas only, usually defined by tee markers or ropes on the practice ground. Please concentrate your hitting area on the practice area for faster recovery of the turfgrass. Please be courteous to others while using the Practice Facility by keeping noise levels and conversations to a minimum. Juniors, sixteen years of age and over, are permitted to use the Practice Facility unaccompanied, provided that they display proper etiquette while on the premises. Children under sixteen years of age must be accompanied by an adult or must be approved by the Professional Staff in order to utilize the Practice Facility. At certain times the Practice Facility will be closed for general maintenance, special events, or when weather conditions prohibit its use. These notices will be posted in the Golf Shop.

Priority of Play

A four-ball will generally have priority on the course over singles, two-balls and three-balls. Accordingly, groups of less than four should not expect to play through a four-ball unless there are open holes ahead. While four-balls usually have priority on the course, players should always maintain a quick pace of play and continue to exercise good judgment and consideration for each other throughout their round. During busy periods, singles and two-ball matches may play only at the discretion of the Professional Staff. Two-balls and singles may be grouped with other players, when practical. A two-ball should not exert any pressure on the group ahead. Four-ball matches shall have the right of way.

Responsibility

The Club shall not be responsible for any loss or damage to any property left or stored on the premises. No person shall remove from the grounds any property belonging to the Club without authorization.

Smoking

In order to protect the Club facilities and assets from fire danger, smoking of any kind is not permitted anywhere on the Mayacama property except in the designated smoking areas. Designated smoking areas are restricted to the private Women’s Locker Room Terrace and the Library Terrace outside the Men’s Locker Room. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on or near the Golf Course or Practice Facility.

Starting Times & Holes

While starting times are not currently required at Mayacama, we encourage you to let the staff know when you plan to play the course; especially during weekends and busy holiday periods. This will assist the staff in scheduling caddies accordingly. All play shall start at Hole # 1 unless otherwise authorized by the Golf Staff. Starting on Hole #10 without prior authorization from the Golf Shop is not permitted. “Cutting-in” is not permitted at any time. At no time should the pace of a Member’s round be interrupted by someone starting on a hole other than Hole # 1.

For more details, Members can refer to Rules & Regulations as found in Mayacama Membership Plan.
