Maitai Masters rules/course info for 2019
The updated rules of golf apply, however if you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, you must play a provisional ball from where you originally hit it and take the required penalty if you can’t find your first ball.
There will be placing of up to one club’s length on your ow fairway, including green surrounds.
No 1 is now the par 5 which starts from across the other side of the river from the golf shop.
No 10 is now the par 5 that starts on the same side as the golf shop and crosses the river.
No 9 hole is now a par 5 played from the back blue/yellow tees across the river.
No 18 is now a par 4 played off the front blue/yellow tees that doglegs right to finish near the bridge by the golf shop.
If you hit the ball in the water hazard while teeing off No 10 and can’t play your ball, you must play your next shot from the marked drop zone across the other side of the river parallel with the front of the tee block and take a one-shot penalty.
If you hit the ball in the water hazard in front of the green on No 9 and can’t play it, you must play your next shot from the marked drop zone in front of the river and take a one-shot penalty.
The par 3s – No 2/11 and No 5/14 – are call-up holes in order to keep play flowing.
Remember you have only 3 minutes to search for a ball. Let the group behind through if you are holding them up.
Play ready golf and move briskly between shots.
Devices for measuring distance only are permitted.
Men are to play off the blue tees and women off the yellow tees.
Players will play 18 holes first followed by the front 9 again, a total of 27 holes. There will be no break between the 18 and final 9 holes.
All players are to drop their completed 18-hole cards into the golf shop as they pass it, and their 9-hole cards into the golf shop as soon as they finish. Both cards must be signed and correct.
Any potential rule infringements or tournament condition breaches must be referred to the match committee within 30 minutes of the affected player(s) finishing. Decisions made by the match committee are final.
