Speed of Play
The following are suggestions to assist with the keeping you place in the field without unduly affecting your own enjoyment of your game.
- Walk smartly between shots and from the green.
- Mark your card at the next tee & the player with the honour making his card after teeing off.
- Always move to your own ball as closely as possible without interfering with other players line of sight or swing.
- If you are losing ground or have a lost ball problem, call the following players through, particularly if you have already fallen behind.
- If there is any doubt that the ball is out of bounds, particularly in a stroke round, then play a provisional ball.
Care of the Course
- Bunkers - rake over footprints and club marks
- Divots & Ball Marks - replace divots or fill with sand and repair all pitch marks
- Flag Stick - when attending the flagstick, keep your feet as far from the hole as possible
- Ensure that no-one is standing close-by or in a position to be hit by the club, ball, or stones, twigs etc when making a stroke or practice swing
- Do not play until players in front are out of range
- Give way to Green's staff at all times
