“READY GOLF” is a commonly used term which indicates that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the “farthest from the hole plays first” stipulation in the Rules of Golf.
“Ready golf” is not appropriate in match play due to the strategy involved between opponents and the need to have a set method for determining which player plays first. However, in stroke play formats it is only the act of agreeing to play out of turn to give one of the players an advantage that is prohibited. On this basis, it is permissible for administrators to encourage “ready golf” in stroke play, and there is strong evidence to suggest that playing “ready golf” does improve the pace of play. For example, in a survey of Australian golf clubs conducted by Golf Australia, 94% of clubs that had promoted “ready golf” to their members enjoyed some degree of success in improving pace of play, with 25% stating that they had achieved 'satisfying success'. (R&A pace of play manual).
Ready Golf means BEING READY to play…. not playing when you're ready. Here are some simple reminders.
Ready Golf DOES NOT mean RUSHING. If you prepare in advance, you can take your time AND play Ready Golf.
If every person in a four ball could play each hole just 25 seconds quicker, then we will make up half an hour for each round.
