Golf Course Marshal

Golf Course Marshal Duties 

A golf course marshal ensures smooth pace of play on golf course, and acts as an information center for golf.

Responsibilities: Observe pace of play. Request slower playing groups to speed up pace or to allow others to play through, if appropriate.

• Collect start sheet from the pro-shop
• Starting groups – confirm tee times on first tee, enforce rules, etiquette and dress code
• Monitor the travel and proper use of golf buggies
• Empty bins as required around the course
• Top ball washers as required
• Maintain speed of play
• Ensure that course conduct and rules are followed
• If more than one marshal is on duty, then areas of the course should be split to provide wider coverage.
• Check visitors for green fee receipts
• Check for bag tags and report any un-authorised play to pro-shop or the Golf manager.
• Marshals are fully supported by the management of DGCC to make decisions to stop play and request players to leave, if rules are not followed.
