2 All players must check in at the Golf Reception and obtain their green fee ticket as well as rental tickets, when applicable. No client will be allowed to enter the courses without presenting the respective green fee/rental ticket to the starter/caddy master.
3 All players are required to follow the regulations of the courses, with regard to etiquette and speed of play, which the Golf Reservations staff, Starters and Marshals are fully authorised to apply. Vale do Lobo Golf Club reserves the right to invite a player to leave the golf course, without any right to reimbursement, if the player does not follow the local rules or any instructions from a member of staff.
4 All players must present official handicap certificate. The maximum handicaps allowed at our courses are: Ladies: 36 | Gentlemen: 28.
5 Players are required to follow the regulations with regard to the dress code. It is essential that golfers wear golf shoes with soft spikes, as well as collared shirts and golf trousers or tailored shorts. 
6 Players’ guests, may be authorised by the Golf Reception to follow the players on the course, when doing so, they must follow the same dress code as the player. Players’ guests are only allowed to join players on the 1st or 10th tee. 
7 All players should refrain from using mobile phones while on the courses or in the Clubhouse area.

We will do all we can to keep play moving on the course and would be grateful for your help in keeping pace throughout your round.
