This is a practice meetup group for golfers in the various stages of learning to play, but golfers of all skill levels are welcome . This is a no pressure group, we're all about having fun and meeting new people. All that's asked is that you show up ready to play when you say you will.
Golfers should be familiar with basic golf etiquette and the rules of golf. We play "ready golf", this keeps the game moving. Basically this means that you should always be ready as soon as possible for your next shot and whoever is ready should go ahead and hit or putt even if they are not the farthest from the hole.
Of course safety is important so don't go in front of someone to hit your ball (that is one time you do wait). Two people on opposite sides of the fairway can hit at the same time unless they are both chipping toward the hole. Use common sense, the goal is to keep a good pace but not cause anyone to feel rushed or stressed.
Courses scheduled will be typically 9-hole (par 3 and 4) courses around the East Bay Area. Feel free to suggest courses for future meetups.
