Message from Billy Ashford
Head Golf Professional
With the influx of so many new members who are playing on the weekends, it appears that I have to remind our membership that our pace of play of four hours and fifteen minutes must be adhered to.
My staff will be monitoring all pace of play and those members who are over the time limit for their hole will either be asked to pick up the pace and catch up to the group in front of them, or step aside and let the faster players play through. My staff will warn those people that are over their time limit and if the group continues to be over the time limit, there will not be a morning tee time given to them going forward and they will have to play in the afternoon.
I have been getting far too many complaints from membership of rounds of golf taking four and a half to five hours over the weekends, and I cannot allow this to happen going forward.
Our goal here at Boca Lago Golf and Country Club is to give every member the best experience, and playing at a good pace of play will afford that to everyone.
The next item I would like to address is those of you who are making tee times for a foursome and either show up with fewer golfers or do not show up at all. Any changes in your tee time must be relayed to the golf staff prior to the day of play. If the same member does not show up to their tee time or continues to sign up for a foursome and not be able to fill their foursome that day, tee times will not be available to them on weekend mornings.

FAIRWAY UPDATE FROM AGRONOMY, RON BAKER -
Well, I wish I could say that I still see a couple people not honoring the 90 degree policy, but I am not exaggerating when I say that I have yet to see anyone actually honor it.
As the quality of the turf improves around the entire property, it's going to become much easier to see these traffic areas. Members and your guest need to do to do their part in taking care of the course. I hope that it actually becomes situation where you also police amongst each other. I am sure a few of you are doing it because I obviously don't see everybody but it really is surprising that so many are not.
We will punch these areas in the rough when we do fairways, but if traffic isn't minimized nothing can be done to help.
Have a great week!

RYDER CUP - SATURDAY & SUNDAY, APRIL 1-2 -
With the increase in membership and less availability of morning tee times, twosomes will no longer be permitted to play any earlier than 10:30. Please make arrangements to sign up for times with a foursome or you will be paired up by our Golf Staff. Another adjustment that will be implemented is that if a group does not show for their tee time and fails to call the Golf Shop prior to their tee time, they will lose the right to make another morning tee time. Memberships are the goal for the future at BLG&CC and as we continue to get closer to our full capacity, there will need to be adjustments in our policies to assure the best golf experience for our membership.
Thank for your cooperation.

All Golf Members:
The range maintenance hours will be as follows:
- The Range will be open 7:30 am on Thursdays.
- The closing of the Range will be 45 minutes before dark everyday.
Our need to cut and maintain our Range is very important and due to the sound ordinance, we are forced to follow the 7:00 am start of the mowers. Hence, no one will be permitted to hit balls on the Range until 7:30 am. Range balls will not be on the Range or practice areas until 7:30 am on Thursdays. Please respect our policy and as always, treat our BLG&CC Staff with the utmost respect that they deserve for making sure rules are followed.
