ETTIQUETTE AT VIETNAM GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
Dear Members & Guests, welcome to Vietnam Golf & Country Club. As the most establishes club in the South of Vietnam, we have developed a set of basic Club Etiquette Rules for all golfers to abide by when visiting VGCC. Good golf etiquette has for centuries been a tradition of the game of golf. The basic principle being that every golfer should at all times show consideration to other players, to the golf club, the course, facilities & clubs staff. On each and every visit to VGCC, please be aware of the following and practice good etiquette at the club.
THE MANAGEMENT VGCC BOOKINGS
Making a booking prior to play is an important part of playing golf. VGCC is a very busy club, and we cannot guarantee a tee time for any player who fails to book. Likewise when you have made a booking, you must be ready on the tee box before your start time. You should arrive at the club at least 20minutes before your tee time, but 30-40 minutes before is generally considered a comfortable arrival time.
If you are late for your tee time we will do our best to get you on the course at the next available tee time if another time is available, this however cannot be guaranteed.
The clubhouse is an area for all golfers and guests to enjoy. It’s expected that upon entering the clubhouse, you act and are dressed appropriately. Shoes are required at all times; keep your voice to a normal level.
USE OF CELL-PHONES
While some clubs do completely ban the use of mobile phones, here at VGCC we do not. We accept that cell-phones are a part of modern day life, and life cannot stop once a golfer enters the club. However in particular on the course please be considerate of other golfers around you trying to play golf. Never hold up the speed of play to take a phone call. If this situation arises whereby an important call must be taken, please skip the hole. Don’t stand in the middle of the putting green taking a call and expect people to wait for you.
VGCC has a slow play policy and this should be adhered to at all times. During the course of a game speed of play is extremely important to keep play flowing for the enjoyment of EVERY golfer.
Each hole on the course has a speed time. The maximum time for 18 hole play is 4 hrs 30mins this includes stopping at all 3 pop-stands throughout the round. The average time for 18 holes should be about 4 hrs & 15mins.
Course Marshals are entrusted with the responsibility to ensure that players adhere to the rules and regulations of play and show consideration to others on the course at all times.
