Nordic Golf League Hard Card 2023


We wish to remind you that there will be a modified Pace of Play rule in effect at the GolfStar Winter Series and PGA Catalunya Spring Series (Ecco Tour).

Model Local Rule 8K-1 is modified as follows:
If a group does not finish a minimum of one (1) of the three last holes of the round;

  • within the maximum allowed time decided by the committee, or
    • within the starting interval of the group in front

all players in the group are deemed to have breached the local rule.

Penalty for breach of the local rule: €20 per player per round

A group is deemed to have finished a hole or the round when the group has registered all scores in the group for that hole in the livescoring system.

The reason behind this decision:
Previous seasons there has been plenty of complains about the Pace of play. We have for many years tried different systems but like many other tours we have not found a working solution. We believe that we need a system that requires all groups to be within the time schedule, no matter if a referee is nearby or not. In 2019 R&A and USGA presented a Model Local Rule regarding Pace of Play (K-1). The local rule below is connected to this one but with more possibilities to be on time and has no effect on the results (no penalty strokes).
