Care of the Course

Fincastle is one of the best maintained golf courses in area. Our staff has a challenging task in keeping our course in great shape due to its old style, sloping terrain, and extreme weather conditions. The greenkeeping staff does an exceptional job and we ask you help them by following the guidelines below:

  • Replace or sand divots as required, even when the cart path only rule is in effect.
  • Always repair your ball marks on the green plus one other, or more.
  • After hitting your shot, use rake to smooth all holes and footprints in bunkers.
  • Do not drive carts past fairway ropes where present, even in the rough.
  • Do not drive carts past cart posts (in absence of ropes).
  • Follow cart rules of the day by either staying on the cart path or driving 90 degrees from the cart path.
  • Avoid walking or driving in wet areas.
  • Place litter in appropriate receptacles and do not let cart litter blow onto the course.
