Officials issue warning to slow intramural golfers

By Raymond V. Whelan 37th Training Wing Public Affairs Office

Earlier this week, the 37th Services Division and Gateway Hills Golf Course ordered all intramural golf teams to cooperate with course officials and avoid wasting time on the course during their weekly matches.

"Each group has the responsibility to maintain the pace of play and keep up with the group in front of them," said Jerry Tiger, the Services intramural golf director. "When a group falls behind, it affects every individual playing behind you."

Neither Services nor course officials mentioned which specific intramural teams have been guilty of lagging behind or lackadaisical competition during previous matches.

However, course officials indicated if the pace of play does not pick up, they will put a marshal on the course to monitor the intramural matches and invoke stroke penalties or even expulsion from the course for deliberate, slow performance.

"The end result of slow play is lost revenue for the golf course," Tiger added.
