AHMGC Winter Rules

Winter Rules

The following rule was has been a tradition of the AHMGC at this time of the year and will be in effect from November 1, 2017 until May 2018 

The ball must be in your own fairway, it may be marked, lifted, cleaned and replaced within one club length from the spot lifted.

Pick Your Hole Rule

During the winter months at Antelope Hills Golf Course, there are three permanent holes/cups for each green, and the flag is rotated by the staff of the Course Superintendent to each of these holes, while the other two have plugs. This also has promoted the playing format of "Pick Your Hole".  The AHMGC Board of Directors has approved the following rule when this format is played:

In order to qualify for a "Hole-in-One" on a par three(3), the ball MUST be holed out where the flag is inserted.  If a player's ball comes to rest on a temporary hole plug, the ball is lifted, cleaned, placed next to the hole, remove the plug and putt out for a two (2).


Should there be any questions or comments concerning this rule, please bring them to the attention of Dennis Reilly or Ron Weiss.
