Moore Park Golf introduced a new pace of play initiative towards the end of 2015 called ‘Share the Course’. Designed to encourage players to work together to ensure a high quality golfing experience for all users, it provides simple techniques which all players can adopt to modify the way they interpret and play the game.
It was launched with a customer charter and on course signage that sets out clear expectations for course users in a humorous, tasteful and honest way.
After the first few months, the initial results are very encouraging. Not only are customers providing great feedback, they are also providing great suggestions on how pace of play can be further improved. Some of the key findings to date are:
- 69% of surveyed MPG golfers say the average round of golf (18 holes) should take 4 hours.
- 92% of these golfers advised their last 18 hole round took 4.5 hours or less.
- 83% further indicated that players should help speed play up by taking no more than 2 practice swings.
- One great tip for improving the on course experience for all was a simple rule for divot repairs; repair yours plus one.
