EWGA Rhode Island Golf Leagues

Our mission is to provide a supportive and welcoming atmosphere for all golfers.  Our leagues draw players from all skill levels. 
The following rules of play are intended to help make your EWGARI experience a wonderful one.


  • Plan your next shot while walking towards your ball or while others are playing.

  • Be ready to hit when it is your turn.

  • Walk briskly between shots.

  • Walk directly to your ball; only follow others if assisting in looking for a lost ball

  • If riding, take several clubs with you to your ball so you do not need to walk back to your cart.

  • Take only one practice swing.

  • Play a provisional ball if you think your original may be out of play.  Be sure to announce your intention to do so.

  • Leave your clubs/cart on the side of the putting green closest to the next tee.

  • Exit the putting green promptly after holing out.


  • Be aware of the specific rules at the course you are playing (cell phones, dress code, local rules)

  • Put an identification mark on your ball and know what you are playing

  • Always play without delay and keep up with the group in front.

  • Invite faster groups to play through.

  • Do not move or talk near a player about to make a stroke.

  • Don’t step on another player’s line of putt.

  • Don’t play until the group in front of you is out of the way.

  • Shout a warning if your ball might hit someone – “FORE”

  • Repair divot holes and ball marks. Smooth footprints in the bunkers.

  • Leave the course in the condition you would like to find it.


  • Play “READY GOLF”. Hit the ball when you are ready as long as you can safely do so.  Do not focus on who has the honors to hit first.
