General Golf Course Rules & Regulations

Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER)

The Stanford Golf Course is a University-owned facility under the direction and supervision of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER). All constituents are subject to rules and regulations established by DAPER. Stanford University reserves the right to change the membership fees, green fees and other charges at any time without prior notice. Neither DAPER nor Stanford University is responsible for the personal property of golfers. Golf bags and other personal property should not be left unattended in the parking lot, near the clubhouse, or on the course. Failure to comply with rules and regulations will result in suspension of playing privileges.

Access & Identification

Constituents - Playing privileges are available to Students, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, Members of the Golf Course and their guests. Constituent groups, their spouses, dependents and guests have specifically designated times of access to the golf course (see the above links for specific constituent access, rates, guest rules and reservations).

Identification - Constituents who hold Stanford University identification must show current identification to gain access to the course. Alumni must be members of the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA) and present their Alumni identification card to gain access to the course.

Hours of Operation

The golf course is open Tuesday through Sunday from dawn to dusk. The golf shop opens at 6:15 AM and closes just after sunset. The course and all practice areas are closed to all constituents on Mondays except Stanford Golf Team members and golf course management. DAPER offers the golf course to charitable fundraising groups, amateur associations and others on several Mondays every year. The course and all practice facilities are open on University holidays. The golf course and golf shop are closed at 1:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day and closed all day on Christmas Day.

Dress Code

Appropriate golf attire including shirts, slacks, shorts, skirts or dresses must be worn at all times. Shirts with a collar, mock neck, or turtle neck are preferred. Golf shoes, tennis shoes or golf sandals are required. Sandals other than golf sandals are not allowed. Bare feet are not allowed.

18-Hole Play

All players must register by name in the golf shop prior to play. All play must start from the first tee unless approved by the golf shop staff (some exceptions are made for special events and specific tournament formats). Each player must have their own set of clubs. Unauthorized persons or players who have not checked in the golf shop will be asked to leave immediately or return to the golf shop to check in. Four players is the maximum number of players allowed in a group. Groups of five or more will be asked to split up immediately. A single player has no standing and will give way to a group of players. Any group playing a full round is entitled to pass a player or group playing a shorter round. If a group fails to keep its place on the course and falls one full hole behind the group in front, it must allow the group following to pass. Play on the golf course is governed by the rules of the United States Golf Association.

Back Nine Play & Twilight Play

9-hole and twilight rates are offered. Rates vary depending on constituent type. The back 9 (holes #10 through #18) are available for play the first hour of daylight except Thursdays and sometimes Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Check the golf course calendar for special events. Players starting on the back 9 must clear the tenth green at a pace so as to not interfere with play that began from the first tee. The twilight rate is available to players playing from the first tee (#1). The twilight rate begins 3 hours prior to sunset.

Practice on the golf course is prohibited. Hitting multiple shots off the tee, in the fairway, from the rough and onto the greens is considered practicing on the course and is not allowed.

Practice is allowed in the designated areas adjacent to the 18th fairway, near the 10th tee, and near the 1st green.

Scrip cards are available for purchase in the golf shop and are available to Stanford students and their spouses only.

Course and Turf Maintenance

All players must respect signs directing foot and cart traffic on the course. After raking a bunker, the rake is to be placed inside the bunker. Privately owned powered single-bag carts are permitted on the course provided rules and marked areas are observed.
