      The player who has the honour should be allowed to play before his opponent or fellow competitor tees his ball. No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke. No player should play until the players in front are out of range.
    4. Pace of play:
      In the interest of all, play without delay. If a player believes a ball may be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds, to save time, he must play a provisional ball. Players searching for a ball should signal the players behind them to pass as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not be easily found. They should not continue play until the players following them have passed and are out of range. When a hole has been completed players should immediately leave the putting green. If a match fails to keep its place in the field and loses more than one clear hole on the players in front, it should invite the match following to pass.
    5. Holes in bunkers:
      Before leaving a bunker, a player should fill up and smooth over all divots and footprints made by him, unless otherwise specified by the Club.
    6. Repair divots and pitch marks:
      A player should ensure that any divot made by him on the fairway should be filled with sand. Likewise, any pitch mark made by him on the green should be correctly repaired. The piece of green knocked out by the ball should be thrown away-do not replace it in the pitch mark.
    7. Damage to greens: 
      Players must ensure that they do not damage the greens by dropping their bags, clubs or the flagpoles on the greens. They must also ensure that they do not damage the holes when replacing or removing the pins.
    8. Pushing in from halfway:
      No players are to push in, without asking the player/s ahead of them if they can play through.
    9. Slow play:
      1. The basic rule is that you are to keep up with the fourball ahead of you:
      2. If a group falls more than one hole behind it will be allocated two holes in which to catch up and receive a warning.
      3. If after two holes the group has not caught up it will be given a final warning.
      4. If two holes after the final warning the group has still not caught up it will be asked to leave the course.
    10. Sandbags:
      Sandbags are compulsory for all players on Jackal Creek Golf course.

    14. Suspension of play:

Notice to discontinue play immediately will be announced by a long continuous blast of the siren at which stage all persons are required to return to the clubhouse. Two repeated short blasts will announce resumption of play. Note: even in the absence of sirens, a player is the sole judge as to the need to suspend play when lightning strikes are visible. If rain was the cause of the course being closed, no carts will be allowed to leave the cart path thereafter.
