Morro Bay  GC

Policies and Procedures

The following Policies and Procedures rules have been approved by the board:

  • Ball Moved On Green. Approved December, 2016

    If your ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent or any of their caddies or equipment. The moved ball or marker must be replaced in its previous location.

    If the ball moves as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies in its new location. A ball marker moved in such circumstance must be replaced.

  • Eligibility for Major Club Events. Approved September, 2016. Clarified June 2017.

    • Eclectic: No requirements- variation on weekly play.
    • Match Play: No requirements. It is an event those who cannot play Tuesdays can participate in.
    • NCGA Events and Club Championship: Entrants must be amateur golfers and current members of the club. Entrants must also have played in at least 4 qualifying rounds in the 12 months prior to the event (not including Club Championship and other NCGA Qualifiers) or have been a member in good standing for at least 5 years. Qualifying rounds are: play on a Tuesday with the club (entry in the game not required) or an NCGA Team Play match for our club at home or away.
    The Tournament Committee can grant exceptions.

  • Repairing Damaged Cups. Approved September, 2016.

    Members are allowed to repair damaged cups at any time.

  • Hole In One Policy. Approved August, 2016.

    The club will now pay for the plaques on holes-in-one made by club members during both club events and other days at Morro Bay, provided there is proper reporting of the hole-in-one to the pro shop and completion of the form that is provided by the shop.

  • Not Posting a Round of Golf - Procedure. Approved February 1, 2011.

    ALL official rounds of golf played at Morro Bay Golf Course or away MUST be posted. A golfer not posting will be warned once of the infraction, and if it occurs again may be subject to a Penalty Score.

    In addition to posting the missed score, the handicap committee may assess a penalty score. For a non-posted low score, the penalty score will be equal to the lowest handicap differential in the player's scoring record. If the non-posted score is unusually high, the penalty score will be equal to the highest handicap differential in the player's scoring record.
