- Course Rules
Care of the Course
Ball hawking is prohibited. All golfers are prohibited from searching for balls (other than the one that they are playing) in lakes or wooded areas on the course. In addition, all players are prohibited from climbing on slopes around the lakes to retrieve golf balls. You are allowed to retrieve your own ball as long as you are not climbing on steep slopes or entering the lakes. Doing so damages the course and is a risk to your own safety. Golfers doing so will be asked to leave the course. All golfers must rake sand traps, put sand in their divots, repair ball marks on greens and pickup their trash. Do not dispose of cigarette butts on the course. Use the ashtrays that we provide for the golf cars. Sand bottles and/or sand bags are provided for golfers who choose to walk instead of renting a golf car. Walkers must carry sand with them when they play to repair their divots.
Male golfers must wear collared shirts with the exception of mock turtle neck short sleeve shirts made by golf clothing manufacturers (e.g. Nike). Shoes must be either golf or tennis style. No hard soled or waffle bottom shoes or boots will be permitted. Ladies shirts can either be sleeveless or collarless but not both. Jeans are allowed. Cutoffs, swimwear and running shorts are not allowed.
Age Requirements: Children must be at least 6 years of age, be accompanied by a parent or adult sponsor, and be playing golf to be on the golf course. Non-golfing children under the age of 18 will not be allowed on the course. Children must be 12 or older to play unaccompanied by the sponsor and be able to demonstrate golf proficiency. Course management reserves the right to restrict youth to certain times and mandate forward tees be used to ensure an adequate pace of play.
Golf Car Rules
A valid driver’s license is required to operate a golf car. Only two passengers and two golf bags may be placed on a golf car. Golfers wishing to utilize a cart by themselves can do so by paying the additional cart fee. No children under the age of 10 will be left unaccompanied in the golf car. Children will not ride in the drivers lap, sit behind the wheel or operate the golf car at any time. Violation of this rule will result in loss of golf car rental privileges. Golf cars will be kept on the paths at all times (all 4 wheels) around greens and tees. Authorized drivers under the age of 18 not accompanied by their parents must return the golf car by closing time (1700 hrs - Nov-Mar / 1800 hrs - Apr-Oct). Non-golfers under the age of 18 will not be allowed on the course. Non-golfers who wish to ride must pay a cart fee. No pets are allowed.

Active Duty Army Soldiers TDY to Camp Zama who have an annual green fee card from a US Army Golf Course will pay 50% of the published green fee for 18 hole rounds with a two-week maximum.
House Guest Policy
The purpose of a house guest pass and subsequent house guest rate is to allow persons visiting SOFA personnel assigned to the Camp Zama area the opportunity to play golf at a rate lower than the rate for local citizens. The following procedures will be followed when requesting a house guest pass.
- The sponsor and their house guest must personally come to the golf course to get the pass (CAFMD Form 0254) prior to each round of golf. Course management will verify that the guest is a house guest who is authorized a lower rate.
- One form will be issued for each round of golf.
- The cashier will collect the house guest form at the time the green fee is paid.
** A house guest is someone who is staying with a SOFA sponsored person (either on or off base).
- House guests should be visiting from outside Japan or
- A Japanese house guest is defined as immediate family members of authorized SOFA personnel "father, mother, brother and sister".
Practice is restricted to the designated practice areas and is not permitted on the course, except for practice swings prior to shots. Mulligans, practice putting or taking additional shots is not permitted while other players are waiting behind you. Taking extra shots into the greens put additional marks on the green and is not allowed. Playing more than one ball is not allowed. Golf holes must be played in order. Please don’t jump around the golf course.
USGA Handicaps are required for all most golf tournaments. It is encouraged that all golfers establish a handicap so that they can participate in golf tournaments. The annual fee for a handicap is $35 payable in the golf shop. The fee covers a calendar year and is discounted to $20 if purchased after October 1st. All handicap subscriptions expire on 1 January of each year. Updated indexes are sent out after each round. All golfers who maintain a handicap are required to post all acceptable scores. It takes 54 holes to establish a handicap (combination of 9 and 18 hole rounds.)
