Play at Yankee Trace

  • Tee Time Reservations

Most annual fee members will have priority access to tee times 14 days in advance. Tee times made online at www.yankeetrace.org can be made ten days in advance. A credit card is required to reserve a tee time online. Daily fee customers may call the golf shop to reserve at tee time seven days in advance.

One individual may reserve two starting times for their group. Any requests for additional starting times must be approved by the head golf professional.

Juniors may make tee times any day after 12:00 p.m.

  • Cancellation Policy

To protect the access rights of all golfers, a 48 hour cancellation policy will be enforced by The Golf Club at Yankee Trace. Failure to show for a starting time results in another golfer not being able to use the facility at their desired time, perhaps not at all.

Any starting time made in advance of this time period may be canceled with a member of the golf staff via telephone. Records of no-shows will be kept, and if, after notice is given, the problem continues, the habitual offender will lose their advance starting time privilege for 30 days.

  • Rain Check Policy

Due to inclement weather that may arise during play, a rain check will be issued to golfers with a paid receipt for 18-holes to be used as credit towards any green fee at a later time:

    • After golfer begins play:  Rain check issued: 50% of fee paid
    • After golfer makes turn:  Rain check issued: None
  • Golf Cars

A junior golfer must present a valid driver’s license before being permitted to drive a golf car.

Non-golfing guests are permitted to ride along with a playing guest with permission from the Head Professional. Payment of the applicable golf car fee is required.

  • Course Care

All players at Yankee Trace are reminded to obey the cart rules of the day, repair ball marks, divots, and rake bunkers. Try to leave the course in better condition than you found it.

  • Speed of Play

Our goal at The Golf Club at Yankee Trace is to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for all during their round of golf. One of the most important aspects in this regard is speed of play. It is the responsibility of the golfer to maintain a proper pace of play during their round of golf. A round of golf should not last more than 4 ½ hours.

Speed of play time goals will be communicated to each group of golfers by the golf shop staff and player assistants as well as noted on the scorecard. Each group will be monitored for their pace of play during the round by staff, who will communicate to the golfers how they are progressing with regard to their pace of play. The player assistants are to provide assistance to each group to maintain their pace and do whatever they can to make each group’s golfing experience an enjoyable one.

After repeated violations, groups not cooperating with our pace of play policies may incur sanctions, which could involve expulsion from the course or restriction from future prime time playing privileges.

  • Homeowner Relations

Golfers are permitted to enter adjacent homeowner rear yards to retrieve errant golf balls within 30 feet of golf course boundary. Golfers are NOT permitted under any circumstances to drive golf cars nor play any shot from adjacent property. The boundaries of the golf course are clearly marked by white out-of-bounds stakes.

The Golf Club at Yankee Trace is not responsible for damage incurred to homeowner(s) property by a golfer.

  • Junior Golfers

A junior golfer is defined as any golfer who has not reached their 30th birthday. Children under the age of 6 are not permitted on the course. Children under the age of 5 are not permitted on the practice range. Children under the age of 5 may use the clubhouse putting green when accompanied by an adult.

A junior golfer must have his or her own set of clubs to play the course.

A junior golfer may play with a group of two or more adults during busy periods of time at normal greens fees. Junior golfers must be at least 12 years of age in order to be on the premises without an adult.

Junior golfers must have a valid driver’s license in order to drive a golf car.
