Frost Delays and Winter Course Update
We have already experienced several days of heavy frost. We ask that you please call ahead to check frost conditions prior to your morning starting times. Starting November 1, 27-holes will be cut to 18-holes and we will officially be moved to the winter course. The winter course consists of all 9 holes of the South, North 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and West 1, 7, 8, 9.
As a member of Kissing Camels Golf Club, you have the privilege of bringing guests to the golf course to play golf with you as an accompanied guest. The club has a guest policy of allowing the same guest to play a maximum of 6 times per year. This policy protects the value of your membership and helps Kissing Camels remain exclusive. Thank you for adhering to this guest policy.
Fishing on the Golf Course
Just a reminder to all members and residents that there are only two locations on property designated for fishing on property. Those areas are Hole #7 on the South Course in the posted area only and at the Glen Eyre Reservoir. Fishing is prohibited on North 8, West 3 or West 4 of the golf course. Safety remains our biggest concern when golfers are in play.
Short Game Practice Area
The short game practice area is available to all members with golfing privileges. There are 3 shag bags available for members to use while they warm up or practice. There are a few club stands around the area for your convenience as well. We ask that you DO NOT FILL DIVOTS, golf course maintenance will fill in all divots. The grass in the short game practice area is Bent Grass and we want to prevent Rye Grass from mixing in. We hope that you take advantage of this wonderful area and be on the lookout for upcoming short game clinics. Click here to learn more and read our FAQ's.

Pace of Play Tips
1. Each member of a group should proceed directly to his or her ball. The group should not travel as a pack, going first to one ball, then the next, and so on.
2. While walking (or riding) to your ball, use the travel time to begin thinking over your next shot – the yardage, which club you’ll use, and so on. Begin preparing before you get to your ball.
3. If sharing a cart, don’t drive to the first ball, wait for the first player to hit, then head to the second ball. Drop the first player off at his ball, drive on ahead to the second ball. The first player should walk over to the cart as the second player is playing his shot.
4. When using a cart on a cart-path-only day, be sure to take a couple of clubs with you when you walk from the cart to the ball. This way, you won’t have to return to the cart if you discover you didn’t bring the appropriate club.
5. Carry a few extra tees and ball markers in your pockets so you don’t have to return to your golf bag to retrieve them, should you find yourself in need of one.
6. When you think your shot might have landed out of bounds or be lost, immediately hit a provisional ball. Don’t walk ahead to search, only to have to return to the original spot to replay a shot.
7. Never hold up play because you’re in the middle of a conversation. Put the conversation on hold, take your stroke, and then continue the conversation.
8. On the green, begin lining up your putt and reading the break as soon as you reach the green. When it’s your turn to putt, be prepared to step right up and take the stroke.
9. Leave your bags or golf carts to the side of the green, and in the direction of the next tee, never in front of the green.
10. Never stand on or next to the green after holing out in order to write down your score. Write it down when you reach the next tee.
11. Try playing “ready golf,” which simply means that order of play is based on who is ready, not who’s away.
