Bunkers

Use repairer around all sides of the pitch mark and slowly ease turf towards the centre of the mark

Do not lift soil upwards

Lightly tap down with putter

REPAIRING Divots

 Always start at the back of the divot and push forward with your clubhead.

 On the Green

  Don't drop the flagstick on the putting surface

 Alway lower the flag by club or by hand

 Avoid damage to surrounds of hole by placing the flagstick in the middle

GREEN surrounds

Slow play

It is your responsibility to arrive onto the tee AT LEAST 5 minutes prior to your tee time so that you are ready to play when your tee time arrives

With the R&A rule changes this year, you have 40 seconds to play your shot and that starts when it is your turn to play and includes time taken to select a club and measure your yardages etc

You only have 3 minutes to search for your ball so please play a provisional ball if you you are in any doubt that your ball may/may not be found

Rule 1. of the R&A Rules of Golf covers playing at a reasonable pace, considering others and caring for your golf course-for example, by replacing divots, smoothing bunkers and repairing ball pitch  marks.  The committee has applied a code of conduct aligned with the R&A rules and you could receive a penalty if you are seen to be ignoring these rules


If you see your playing partners or any other members ignoring these rules then please help us to maintain your enjoyment of the game and inform the Pro Shop or one of the Starters/Marshalls of any ill behaviour
