Full Golf Members may book tee times up to 14 days in advance. We encourage members to make tee times well in advance (especially on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) as The WildeWood Club has 315+ Full Golf Members as of June 1.
Tennis/Social/HOA Members may book tee times up to 7 days in advance for the 6 rounds per year you are allowed to play.
All players must check-in at the pro shop before going out to play. This allows the pro shop staff to inform all players of the daily rules and helps with the pace of play. Please do not head to the first tee without checking in to the pro shop.
Reciprocal rounds at other clubs can booked no earlier than 72 hours in advance of the tee time.
The WildeWood practice areas are for Full Golf Members and their daily guests only. Tennis/Social/HOA Members may use the practice facilities on the days they pay to play one of their 6 allotted rounds per year.
Appropriate golf attire must be worn at all times. Jeans, athletic shorts, swim shorts, sweatpants, sandals, t-shirts, and sleeveless shirts are not allowed at any time on any area of the WildeWood golf course and practice facility.
All players 21 years old and younger must have their shirts tucked in at all times.
We do not require adults over the age of 21 to tuck in their shirt but we would greatly appreciate it if they would do so as it is typically mandated for all levels of play in the world of golf. Thank you to all the members that do this already!
COURSE ETIQUETTE REMINDERS:
Please be on time for your tee time and check-in at the pro shop before heading to the first tee.
Please call the golf shop if you need to cancel your tee time.
Please use the 2 sand bottles on the cart to fill in your divots in the fairways/rough.
Please leave the 2 green towels in your cart upon the completion of play.
Please return your golf cart to the cart path near the tee boxes and when approaching the green.
Golf carts must remain on the path on all Par 3’s.
All golfers must ride 2 players per cart. Single carts are no longer allowed.
The rakes have been returned to the sand traps. All bunkers are still played as LIFT, CLEAN, and PLACE and raking is optional. Please smooth the sand out with your feet after your shot if you choose not to rake.
Please be sure to tap your shoes with your club when exiting the bunker to remove excess sand and help prevent “sand-footprints” on the greens.
Please allow faster players/groups to play through if there are open holes ahead in front of you.
Please be courteous to other players and limit your range session to an hour or less on busy days. This will allow all golfers to utilize the practice facilities prior to play.
The WildeWood golf staff would like to personally thank all the members that do these things every day!
