Spring banquet Update
Greeting’s fellow Topstone men’s club members,
After much discussion with members of the board, we have decided to postpone the opening season banquet to a later date. We feel it is in our best interest to keep you, our members, as well as the banquet staff of Three seasons café safe at a time when we are unsure of what’s going to transpire with the CoronaVirus.
We still plan to proceed with starting our season the weekend of March 21st, weather permitting of course, assuming the course is open for play. . We have an open line of communication with Topstone in the event that they decide to close the course. I know we don’t get the galleries like they would at the Players championship or even the Masters, so the board feels we are ok to start the season. We are lucky enough to play a game that has us outside enjoying the weather with friends. A few things to think about when coming to play, consider walking instead of riding a cart. While hanging with a friend riding a cart is enjoyable, it would allow you some personal space and help control the possible spread of sickness. When you do come out to the course for your opening round, give yourself some extra time to get into the pro shop and check in. We would like to limit the amount of people in there at once and give the Pro shop the chance to welcome you all back as well as go over the games for the year. The Pro shop will be handing out your tournament cards and it may be a little hectic. I don’t want anyone rushing in to pay their greens fees and rush to the first tee. If you are not feeling well, as a courtesy to other golfers please do not come to the course. The pro shop will not have a problem with you cancelling because of you not feeling well enough to play.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us through the web site.

New Pace of Play Policy for 2020
We have a new Pace of Play (POP) Policy beginning for the 2020 golf season. Click here to access the Pace of Play Policy document.
The game of golf has had increased focus and attention on the pace of play and its overall impact on the enjoyment of the game for all involved. The new rules of golf implemented in 2019 were, in large part, implemented with the thought of their impact on improving pace of play. The Men’s Club Board spent a significant amount of time in 2019 discussing this topic, monitoring the actual pace of play for the entire 2019 season, and analyzing the results against the time standards that were previously established. After much constructive debate and consideration, the policy was approved by the Board to be implemented during the 2020 season.
The policy includes those POP time standards that were in effect for the 2019 season, but now includes details about the number of violations allowed prior to the implementation of any penalties (tee time restrictions) that may apply.
If you have any questions regarding the policy, you may contact the Board by using the Contact the Board page, and we will respond as soon as we are able.
