The attention of all members and particularly beginners is drawn to the Rules of Golf – Section 1 regarding Courtesy and Priority on the Course and also Care of the Course. For insurance purposes members are required to register in the club house before commencing play.
Remember the three “R’s”; Replace Divots, Rake Bunkers and Repair Pitch marks.
No practising is allowed onto the greens. A person playing on his own may only play two balls.
All Competitions must start on the 1st Tee unless otherwise stated by the Committee.
Slow play spoils the enjoyment of other players. Please play at a rate/pace that will hold your place on the course and, if necessary, remind those playing with you to do the same. If you are holding up the players behind, you must speed up or allow them to play through.
Players whose names are on the ‘Timesheet’ have absolute right of way on the 1st Tee.
The use of GPS devices is permitted in all club competitions.
