Golf Etiquette

Proper golf etiquette makes the game of golf more enjoyable for all players. All players at Copper Canyon Golf Club are encouraged to use proper golf etiquette out of respect for fellow golfers.

Please check in with the Golf Shop at least 15 minutes prior to your tee time. The entire foursome must check in by first and last name with the Starter prior to teeing off.

Pace of play is very important. Golf carts must remain on cart paths unless otherwise noted.

The course should be played in 4 hours and 20 minutes. If a group falls behind this time frame, the staff will assist the group in speeding up the pace of play. The staff is available to assist players in having enjoyable rounds without delaying the pace of play for other players. Please respect the staff as they are trying to take care of all golfers on the course.

Course conditions are a vital part to the success of our Club. Please properly fix ball marks on greens using the appropriate repair tools. Replace fairway divots with appropriate seed that is provided with each golf cart. Remember not to take your frustration with the game of golf out on the golf course, equipment or playing partners.
