Please follow the drive to the valet parking area, where your clubs and car will be retrieved and you will be directed to the locker room. If the Member host has notified us in advance, our Locker Room Manager, Brian Murphy, will have a guest locker assigned for you. It is policy of the Club to have your golf shoes cleaned by our staff, before stepping on to the practice areas or first tee. Please provide your shoes to one of our locker room attendants.
Proper golf attire is required for play; shirts are always to be tucked in and must have a collar (women are allowed collarless golf shirts and golf shirts/blouses designed to be not tucked); golf hat bills are to be worn forward; golf hats are prohibited in the clubhouse with the exception of the locker room; shoes and clothing should be changed in the locker room and not the parking lot. Males – golf shorts to be no shorter than 4 inches above the knee; Females – Bermuda length shorts, skirts and golf dresses no shorter than 4 inches above the knee.
No denim is allowed anywhere on club property.
Bathing attire is limited to coming directly to and from the pool area (a cover up is encouraged).
As a general policy, cell phone usage is discouraged. Cell phone calls are allowed in the parking lot and in certain designated areas highlighted below.
Clubhouse, Patios, Locker Rooms and Pool Deck: Phones are to be in silent mode. Talking on a cell phone is prohibited. However, if you must make a call, please limit this use to the locker rooms. For men, please find a quiet space at the end of a row of lockers where there are tables and chairs. For women, please find a quiet area within the locker room. When at the pool, please use the dressing rooms. Outgoing calls at the pool deck can be made from the Club's landline staff phone at the registration desk.
Other than valet car parking attendants, caddies and locker room attendants, no other employees are allowed to accept a gratuity. Please check with your Member host as to what is or is not acceptable practice.
Westmoreland is a walking course with a strong, traditional caddie program, and therefore, unless there is a medical reason, all Members and guests are required to use caddies when available. Members and guests should take the caddie evaluations seriously and provide constructive feedback to the caddies and caddie master. Caddies should be tipped according to job performance and the club professional, Member or caddie master can provide input as necessary.
Care of Golf Course
We request, when repairing ball marks and divots, that you use the Club’s complimentary repair tool. These plastic tools are available in the pro shop and starter’s desk.
In addition to ball mark and divot repairs, and bunker raking, please do not drive golf carts within 30 feet of any green, 25 feet within any tee, or near practice areas and newly sodded or seeded areas.
Pace of Play
Play should not exceed 4 hours.
Players must keep up with the group ahead and not just ahead of the game behind; any gap larger than the starting interval is a signal that players must conscientiously strive to increase pace of play. Golfers who play slowly should stand aside and signal faster players to play through; golfers riding in carts should not place unreasonable pressure on walking players ahead.
Etiquette and tradition dictate that the player having the honor should be allowed to hit before the playing partner’s tee the ball. However, in the interest of maintaining the objective pace of play of 4 hours, players are encouraged to safely hit when ready even though they may not have the honor or are not away. On the tee, shorter hitters should be encouraged to hit first.
Players should record scores on the tee of the following hole.
