We strongly suggest guests and neighboring homeowners acquaint themselves with all our safety policies below and our full Golf Course Policies and Procedures.
For new move-ins, please be aware that only registered golfers are allowed on the course property. Please keep children and pets safely off the course and parking lot at all times. Please be aware bicycling and skating on the cart paths and the parking lot are unsafe and are not permitted.
We strive to maintain safety and a harmonious balance between community recreation and the needs of our neighbors and guests. Thank you for your understanding of these safety issues. We are grateful you are our neighbor and we value your support.

1. Safety Excerpt from Published Course Policies
(A full listing of course policies at the bottom of this page.)
2.3 SAFETY: All Guests are responsible for their own safety. Remuda will not be responsible for negligent Guests who endanger others physically by recklessness. It is the responsibility of all Guests to know their own physical limitations. If they are not physically able to negotiate uneven terrain, random bunkers, bodies of water, etc. or safely hit golf balls they are required to stay off the course. Guests who are intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, including prescription drugs, must discontinue play and may not operate golf carts.
Guests must ensure that no one is standing in a position to be hit by the club, the ball, or any debris when they make a stroke or practice swing. Guests should not play until the players in front are out of range. Guests should always alert maintenance personnel nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them. If a Guest plays a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone they are required to immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such situations is “fore.” (Rule violations should be reported immediately to the Ranger, clubhouse, or management for immediate action.)
2. Safety Recommendations for Neighbors
Safety Recommendations for Neighbors bordering, and near to the golf course. Below you will find a letter of Damage Prevention Suggestions.
There are many means of providing protection for your family and property. The following methods are addressed in this letter: Insurance, netting, fencing, awnings, shutters and sun screens, tree planting, and ball-resistant building materials.
First, insurance can be set up to cover either the back side of a home, or on the entire home. Most everyone has some type of home insurance and it may only require adding property damage to the policy, or an umbrella policy. If you don’t already have an agent, I would suggest agents Brian Hawks of Allstate – Five Points 333 E. 2nd Street, Suite 3 (801)393-6511, or Shawn Iverson of The Insurance Center of Ogden, 3020 Washington Blvd Ogden, UT 84401 (801) 622-2626 www.insctr.biz. In my opinion, this is the most cost effective option, rather than maintaining a large net spanning the back and side of your yard, for example.
Second, there are some homeowners who have found netting solutions for protection. Online there are many providers, (www.unique-sports.com, www.gourock.com, www.usnetting.com, www.cascadenets.com, www.reddennets.com, www.sportnetting.com, www.seamarnets.com, www.wittekgolf.com.) Netting is a highly effective barrier against balls hitting your house directly, but keep in mind that there is still a chance golf balls can pass over the net or angle through neighboring properties. The driving range has sixty foot nets, for example, and many balls still go over the top of it.
Third, many homeowners have erected some type of fencing. Fences can stop low flying balls and they also prevent golfers from entering your yard. The golf course endorses Remuda Subdivision restrictive covenants requiring fences to be made of white vinyl. There are vinyl fences available that are ball resistant, but they cost more. If you go with a less expensive vinyl, at least a $20 slat is cheaper than replacing other valuables. Some local fence dealers are: All Fence Supply Inc. 800 Wall Av, Ogden UT 84404 (801)399-4283, Roylance fence and Security, Roy UT 84067 (801)985-1550, A Vinyl Fence Connection 1377 N Main St. Layton UT 84041 (801)779-4422. (Online there is a good site for comparing styles at huskervinyl.com.)
Fourth, awnings or window roll-down screens which can be effective at stopping errant balls and some can be rolled up or taken off during times when there is no play on the course, such as winter. Contact Out West Awning, Craig Bingham 393-6839. They are located off of 1900 W near the 24th street exit. There is also Kool Breeze located at 3220 S. 1900 W. in Ogden, telephone (801)627-1020. Budget Blinds of Northern Utah, Inc. 5790 W 4275 S, Hooper, UT 84315 (801)732-6846 has removable screens that mount on the outside of the window which serve multiple purposes. They can stop golf balls and they shade the inside of your home while still allowing you to see outside. Large retail stores like Home Depot, and Lowe’s also have varied types of awnings, shutters, and window screens.
Fifth, trees are available at nurseries, such as Jerry’s Nursery – Farr West (801)782-4149, Alpine Gardens – Perry (801)399-4300, Valley Nursery – South Ogden (801)479-6060 and seasonably at large retail stores such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart, etc. Our opening season we gave away more than 1,000 trees and shrubs to neighbors to use in their yards for the purpose of screening balls. Homeowners can purchase trees in any height and density to screen their houses from golf balls.
Sixth, if you are interested in window tinting (prevents glass shattering), talk to Glamour Glaze 6022 S 1900 W; Roy UT 84067; (801)776-846. They have film that can be applied to windows for tinting purposes and also for added security. There are differing grades of this film, the most commonly used type will not prevent a window from being broken but it will prevent the ball from entering the home and doing even more damage. Glamour Glaze has demo’s you can look at in their shop.
Seventh, There are building material options homeowners can use such as ball resistant glass (tempered,) plexi-glass, stucco, adjustable storm shutters, ball resistant vinyl fencing and hardened siding products. Contacting a building contractor to direct you to a trustworthy supply dealer is our recommendation. You can also try the large retail stores (Lowe’s and Home Depot) or other building suppliers. As a reminder, siding on the backside of homes is not allowed by the restrictive covenants of Remuda subdivision. Stucco is more resistant than the fragile aluminum siding. (Hardy board is also much more ball resistant than aluminum or plastic siding.)
We hope you discovered some useful ideas in this letter which you can implement at your property. We care about you and the safety of your family and property. In addition to these suggestions, homeowners are encouraged to acquaint themselves with our full Golf Course Policies and Procedures.

3. GOLFER SAFETY AND ETIQUETTE POLICY
The first and foremost rule of golf and golf etiquette is SAFETY. This rule applies to young and old alike. Without some good common sense and a notion of how hard golf balls and clubs are, a golf course can be a very dangerous place. So here are some safety rules to always follow on the golf course:
Don’t take practice swings toward another person (rocks and sticks and grass can fly up and hit them in the eye.)
Don’t swing your clubs when someone is walking around — and don’t walk around when someone is swinging golf clubs. There’s a good reason they are called “clubs.”
Never walk out onto the driving range to pick up a golf ball, even if you hit it. Just use a new ball and hit again. Never step in front of the mats or grass hitting areas or you could be struck by a ball. Also, stay well away from others who are hitting golf balls at the driving range, you could be accidentally struck by their club on a back swing.
Look both ways when stepping across a golf cart path, or when passing across the street in a designated cart path cross walk. There are fast moving motorized vehicles at a golf course such as mowers and golf carts that may not see you.
Be very cautious in the parking lot, there are cars, trucks, and golf carts backing up all the time and they may have a hard time seeing you. Do not run in in a parking lot or ride bikes or skates.
Read through our full course safety policies and terms of course use.
Etiquette has to do with manners. Whether you are talking about etiquette at the dinner table, in school, in your family or out at the movies with your friends, etiquette is important. It is through the courtesy we show to other people that we communicate our respect for them and that we show them how important we think they are.
Golf etiquette is an extremely important part of the game of golf. The etiquette golfers show to one another out on the course is one of the things that distinguishes golf from all other sports.
Golf is a game that requires a lot of concentration. If you are trying to make a putt, or hit your tee shot into a narrow Fairway, it will be much more difficult if someone is laughing, rattling their clubs, or running around the tee or green.
There are a few rules of etiquette that apply in all situations on the golf course and the practice area and there are other rules of etiquette that are particular to certain circumstances, especially on the green. Below are some of the general applications of golf etiquette.
Be very careful not to damage or make marks on the short grass areas called greens. Don’t hit the surface with your clubs or make cuts or divots.
Do not damage or step on the edge of the cup in the green. The golfers after you want conditions just as good as you had them.
Be careful not to scuff your shoes on the greens, the grass is very sensitive and it is bad etiquette to leave marks for the next golfer to play on.
Be careful not to step on golf balls or putter heads and make marks in the greens.
Locate any marks you or your ball has left on the green and fix them with a divot tool. It is also good etiquette to fix one or more divot marks of previous golfers.
QUIET AND NO RUNNING
Quiet is required on the golf course. Golf requires a lot of concentration, and even if the people in your immediate group don’t seem to be bothered, there are other groups all around you. So keep your voice down.
Walk, don’t run. Running around is annoying, distracting and causes damage to the course. Walk quickly, but lightly.
Do your part to instruct young children the difference between a golf course and a park.
PACE OF PLAY
As much as people enjoy playing golf, they don’t want their round to take all day. If golfers have to wait too long in between shots they get impatient and they lose their momentum. So here are some things you can do to maintain a good pace of play:
Take only one practice swing for each shot, then hit the ball. (Remember: if you take 120 shots in a game and you take an extra 30 seconds for each one you will add an hour to the length of your golf game.)
Plan your shot before it’s your turn (don’t wait until your turn to start thinking about what club you will hit, or whether to go over the water or lay up to it — be ready in advance).
As you approach the green determine in which direction the next tee is located and leave your clubs (or park your cart) on that side of the green.
When playing from a motorized cart, if one player is on one side of the fairway and the other player on the opposite side, drop one player off at his or her ball with a choice of a few clubs, then drive to the next player’s ball and meet farther down the fairway, after both have hit their shots.
Keep up with the group ahead of you. As they leave the green you should be ready to hit up to the green. Don’t worry about how far ahead you are of the group behind you, focus on staying a reasonable distance from the group ahead.
If you spend more than five minutes hunting for a ball it is time to move on. Searching too long slows down then momemtum for you and others. If you lose a lot of golf balls consider using “experienced” golf balls or more inexpensive golf balls so you don’t feel bad for leaving them behind.
Hitting Into the Group Ahead of You
Minding your “Pace of Play” will help you stay with the group ahead and you will be sure not to delay any groups playing behind you. At the same time you are being careful to stay with the group ahead, you must also be careful not to be so close that you hit your ball into that group. If your ball was to hit one of the players in that group it could be very tragic, so be careful that all golfers are out of range before you hit.
Sometimes there are golfers who get very impatient if a group is playing slowly ahead of them; that is understandable. However, it is never acceptable to try to speed up that group by hitting a ball at them to send them a message that you are getting tired of waiting. If you are tired of waiting, walk ahead to their group and ask them to speed up play, but never hit into them.
Playing Through another group is one of the most difficult and contentious parts of golf. It is difficult because, often, there is an implication that the group who is “being played through” is guilty of slow play and they typically resent that implication — even if it’s true. So if you are going to ask another group to allow you to play through them, do so in a courteous manner and at a convenient time in the round.
Here are some tips regarding Playing Through:
Be sure there is room for you to properly play through before you ask permission. (If there is another group immediately ahead of the group you are asking, they will naturally decline to let you through and they will be annoyed that you bothered them.) Be courteous and quick as you hit your shots in playing through. If you hit bad shots (which often happens because there is extra pressure when you are playing through), don’t take any Mulligans, just drop a ball near where yours was last seen and play on.
If you are playing slowly (more than a hole between you and the group ahead of you) and you think the group behind might want to play through, invite them to do so. It might be convenient when you are on a green. Wave them up, stand aside and let them hit up to the green. As they are walking up to the green you can putt out. Then allow them to tee off before you on the next tee.
Play Ready Golf Whenever It’s Appropriate
If you are not playing golf in an actual tournament, or other sanctioned event, it is okay to play “ready golf” Ready golf means the golfer who is ready to hit can do so even though he or she may not be farthest away from the hole. Just agree ahead with the others in your group that you will play ready golf when it makes sense. That way they won’t think you are just unaware of the rules. It is good courtesy to acknowledge that you are playing ready golf to move things along.
Ready golf can really help to speed things along, but before you hit be sure that everyone in your group knows that you are going to hit and that you are aware of where everyone in your group is. You certainly do not want to hit someone who is not paying attention, nor do you want several people hitting at one time.
To drive a golf cart on the course you need some common sense and a great deal of respect for the course and the players around you.
If you are driving a motorized cart, drive at a moderate speed and keep your eyes open for other golfers.
Depending on weather conditions and other variables courses will post different rules relating to the use of carts. Be sure to obey the course rules regarding carts such as:
Keep carts on paths at all times — this is a rule that courses use if the ground is very wet and they don’t want the tires of the motorized carts to damage the fairway grass.
90 Degree Rule — this rule requires you to stay on the cart path until you are even (at a 90 degree angle) with your ball. Then you may drive your cart straight out to your ball. When you’ve taken your shot, drive straight back to the cart path. Adhering to this rule minimizes damage to fairway grass as well. but still allows golfers to drive right up to their golf ball.
If you hit your golf ball into a neighbors yard let it lie there. It is bad etiquette to step on their lawn to retreive your ball and it can cause trouble between you, the homeowner, and the golf course. Neighbors yards are considered out out bounds and you should play another ball.
If you hit and damage a house or other personal property it is proper to leave a note or contact the clubhouse so you can recompense the owners. Golfers are responsible for their own errant golf shots. It is not the responsibility of the golf course and it is not the fault of the homeowner for living on the course. Without them there may not be a golf course!
Remember golf is a lifelong and socially interactive game. If everyone practices proper etiquette on the course more focus can be spent on perfecting your skills and enjoying time spent with friends and family.

5.0 GOLF RULES OF PLAY
5.1 GENERAL RULES: Each Guest must register and have their own set of clubs. Only soft spikes are allowed on the golf course turf. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times. USGA and local rules govern play on the golf course. Golfers must play only one ball during rounds; hitting practice balls is allowed only at designated practice range or practice green. Playing more than one ball or practicing during course play is prohibited. Follow cart signs, repair ball marks on the greens, replace divots and rake bunkers. Obey all signs and supervisors, including Players Assistants.
Golf Cars are allowed on the fairways, maximum of two riders per golf cart. Carts shall be driven on specific golf car paths whenever possible and shall remain 30 (thirty) feet from greens and hazards and off all tee box areas.
All players shall start playing only at number one tee unless specifically authorized to start at another tee by the Golf Starter, and shall not play at any time until the players ahead are out of range. Golf Starters shall properly space golf groups (approximately every eight minutes) to ensure speed of play and safety on the course. Do not tee off or hit into other players or maintenance personnel. Follow rules of “Ready Golf” to keep pace of play flowing. Observe all out of bounds markers and property lines. Every person must obey the directions of the Course Superintendent, PGA or Teaching Professional, Player’s Assistants and Tee Starter with reference to order of play, practicing and behavior on the grounds.
All leagues, tournaments and special events shall be scheduled with management. No Guest shall golf a round in a group larger than a foursome, that is, containing no more than four persons. No Guest shall approach or otherwise hit a golf ball onto or towards a green when in close enough proximity for the ball to hit players still on the green or after a golf course employee has removed the flag on the green for maintenance purposes, and shall not approach or hit the ball until the flag has been reset and the player or golf course employee is off the green.
5.2 “READY-GOLF”: Guests should be ready to play as soon as a safe shot can be made, irrespective of who is closest to the pin. Simultaneous shots are allowed if there is no possibility of ball collisions. It is essential that speed of play is not delayed. Guest should pick up their ball when they can no longer score better than three over par on a hole. It is a group’s responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If a group loses ground on the group in front, therefore delaying following groups, following groups should be invited to play through.
When playing on or near the putting green, players should leave their bags or carts in such a position that enables quick movement off the green and towards the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green.
Players should not mark scorecards until the next tee. The first guest to tee off should mark scorecards after tee-off. If a ball is lost or is out of bounds a provisional ball should be played to save time. Players should not search more than five minutes before moving on or waving through following groups. Guests should keep an extra ball available, to eliminate the need for walking back to bags or car when a provisional ball is needed.
When on the green, Guests should “putt out” whenever possible instead of marking the ball. The first person that “putts out” should tend and replace the pin for other players. Watch other shots, as well as your own, to help pinpoint the position of their ball and try to identify the finishing position by using a nearby tree or landmark. Offer to rake the bunker for groups ahead so they can play their next shots quickly. Guests should refrain from giving play instruction on the course, that is what the driving range and practice green is for.
Anticipate the club or clubs you may need and go directly to your ball. Study and clear the line of your putt while others are doing the same. If possible, repair ball marks and divots while waiting for other players. When approaching a green, drive your golf car to the side or rear of the green on the best direct path to the next tee. Do not leave the golf car in front of the green where you will have to go back to get it.
5.3 SUPERVISION OF PLAY: Course staff, including Players Assistants, Superintendent and clubhouse starters, acting under the supervision of the General Manager, have the responsibility for supervision and control of all matters relating to play on the golf course. Privileges may be refused to anyone who violates any of the rules and regulations, policies, procedures, the rules of play, etiquette and/or dress code. Responsibility for such supervision may be delegated to PGA or Teaching Professionals, Tee Starters, Players Assistants, or other individuals designated by the General Manager.
5.4 GOLFER’S ETIQUETTE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: Guests should always show consideration for other players by not disturbing their play by moving, talking or making unnecessary noise. Guests should ensure that any electronic or noise making device taken onto the course does not distract other players. Guests should not tee the ball until it is his or her turn to play.
Guests should not stand close to or directly behind the ball, or directly behind the hole, when a player is about to play. On the putting green, Guests should not stand on another player’s line of putt or, when he is making a stroke, cast a shadow over his line of putt. Players should remain on or close to the putting green until all other players in the group have holed out. Avoid stepping on the hole when retrieving your ball. In stroke play, the person acting as a marker should, if necessary, check the score with the player concerned and record it. In the case of a serious breach of etiquette, Guests may be asked to leave.
5.5 SPIRIT OF GOLF: For the most part, golf is played without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on individual integrity to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules of play. All players and guests should conduct themselves in a disciplined, courteous, and sportsmanlike manner, irrespective of how competitive they may be.
The course may adopt and publish policies from time to time relating to various matters. Most policies are incorporated into these Rules, Regulations, Policies, and Procedures. Others are published in the newsletters or posted in clubhouse. Each Guest has a duty to keep informed of and abide by policies as published.
