Plan to wear comfortable walking shoes.
Walk – don’t run.
Stay behind the gallery ropes and obey the officials and marshals.
Kneel if you are near the ropes so that those behind you may see.
Observe silence throughout each shot.
Do not move until all players in each group have completed their shots. Respect the players and caddies during their round, give them space and do not interrupt them during the round.
Home of the Ocala Open golf tournament, the Candler Hills Golf Course is a beautiful Par-72 semi-private championship golf course that has seven sets of tees ranging in length from 4,877 to 7,233 yards creating a rewarding experience for golfers of various handicaps. Enjoy the picturesque scenery and unique layout, but most importantly, enjoy your round of golf! With a Palm Springs-style landscape the course’s natural splendor is enhanced by the variety of trees including sabal palms, live oaks and slash pines and various ornamental grasses… this is not your typical Florida golf course.
