Marathon Classic reminds visitors to follow the rules

Posted: Updated:
 If you're planning to come out to the Marathon Classic at Highland Meadows for the weekend, there are some rules you'll need to follow.

 Tournament Director Judd Silverman says he wants everyone to have a great time, but they need to follow basic golf etiquette. "When they are hitting, you gotta be quiet. But when they do something good, you gotta let them know."

The number one rule is to obey the marshals. Scott Saunders is the Head Marshall. It's his job to control the crowd. "Once the player addresses the ball, and is getting ready to play, we need to not use our voices, but use our arms and our eyes to try to get people's attention."

He says to keep your eye on the marshall after the golfer hits the ball.  "Once the shot is hit, we can direct it straight down the middle, went to the right, or it went way right. but we don't say anything. we are very quiet. we mime this. "

Spectators should wait at the tee until all the golfers have had a chance to hit, then move with the golfers to the next location.

Saunders says. "Just so each player has an equal opportunity to do well. This is their livelihood and we want to make sure we treat them all equally. "

Also remember to carry a course map with you and to leave cameras, pets and coolers at home.
