The New Course maximum for men: 28, ladies 36. The starter and marshall have the right to direct certain players to play from forward tees if deemed to be holding up play. Players who have a high handicap will be allowed to play subject to availability and at a time which does not intrude on other players. If a player holds up the pace of play and refuses to let faster players through they may be asked to leave the course. San Roque members must be federated with the Real Federacion Española de Golf in order to win member´s competitions and the club can administer this.
