Golf course conditions are the result of hard work by the grounds crew each and every day, but good playing conditions also come from a strong etiquette effort by the players at the golf course. Wherever you play your next round, please help your golf course out by fixing your ball mark plus another on each green, replacing your divots and by raking smooth your footprints in the bunkers. 

We are now just starting to "wake up" the golf course from the winter off-season and we will be starting our pre-emerge spraying maintenance plan to protect the turf before we encounter insect, weed and disease issues over the next couple of months. We will also begin our daily mowing schedule soon as the ground temperatures warm up and that will lead right into our irrigation and regular maintenance patterns. We thank you in advance for your etiquette efforts at Pitman GC and for your cooperation throughout the season!

Thanks - Rick


Golf Etiquette Program

The Pitman Golf Course is committed to providing golfers of all abilities the best possible playing conditions for your round and it requires your attention;

We ask that those who play Pitman Golf Course;

  • Repair ball marks
  • Replace divots
  • Rake bunkers smooth
  • Follow cart rules and regulations
  • Maintain proper Pace of Play

A fundamental principle in playing the game of golf is that all players show respect and consideration for one another AND for the course. Accordingly, as a golfer you are expected to uphold these basic etiquette rules of play and our golf staff has been instructed to enforce these rules throughout the day. Failure to follow these rules can result in being asked to leave the golf course with NO refund. We hope that everyone embraces this NEW program and we thank you in advance for your cooperation!

If you feel that you can not abide by these rules or have no desire to acknowledge proper golf course etiquette, we will gladly refund your green/cart fees prior to tee off.

Ball Mark Campaign

The Pitman Golf Course would like to remind everyone about basic golf course etiquette...

Please repair your ball marks. Everyone wants to putt on the best conditioned greens possible, but not everyone is doing their share when it comes to fixing ball marks. Remember, each golfer is respoonsible for repairing the damage that they do by way of ball marks and/or divots out on the course. If you wait for you golf staff to repair these things, it will take much longer to heal and the playing conditions will suffer as a result. This is especially true with ball marks. It only takes a few seconds to repair your mark and that will ensure the best possible playing conditions for your next round...we all might even make a few more putts along the way!
