If a group is out of position for more than 2 holes, out of position will be defined by having a hole open and your group is on the tee box and the group in front is off the green, when both groups have the same number of players. Violators will be penalized 2 strokes per player in the group. If course marshals are present, they'll be authorized to make the slow group skip the hole. Any holes skipped will be scored as quad.
All players will mark two balls and identify prior to teeing off within your group. Balls should be marked to differentiate between the 2

Lost ball is a 5 minute search then play your provisional (Hit another ball if there is any question if the ball can be found)

If there is Rules question which can not be resolved within the playing group. Play 2 balls and a ruling will be made after the round.
