  • Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your tee time to register and pay.
  • If you are using your golf cart, park in the designated space (by Hole#) in the staging area.  Rangers will be there to guide you.  
  • 11 Stroke Rule:  This rule applies during QC9LGA league play.  After 11 strokes you must pick up your ball. 
  • Your goal is to follow the rules of golf and correctly score all strokes. This is very important especially since prize payouts are affected by scores.
  • We ask that you repair ball marks on the greens and divots in the fairways.  There is a container on the tee box for broken tees to be placed.

Score Cards:

  • There is one official score card for each team.  One person is responsible for marking scores.  Additionally, the other should mark scores on a QC score card to compare scores before finalizing.
  • Score cards must be dated, signed and attested to at the end of each round.
  • The card must then IMMEDIATELY be placed in the designated area in the Pro Shop. Failure to sign, attest and turn in the official score card may result in disqualification.

Weekly Winners:

     Winnings are added to your North Star account by the Pro Shop and must be used by December 31.  Winners will be notified by Golf Genius email.

Posting Scores:

  • League Days:  The score card must indicate your ACTUAL score up to the maximum of 11 strokes.  The Tournament Managers will post all league day scores into the GHIN system.
  • Non-League Days:  Players are responsible for posting their own scores on GHIN as soon as possible preferably before midnight on the day they played their round.
  • We strongly recommend members post all scores via GHIN or AGA cell phone app so that they can post scores immediately from anywhere they play golf. Members who play away from Quail Creek and who are seasonal residents, should post all scores that abide by the Rules of Golf.
