Course Etiquette

These guidelines provide a base on which the game of golf should be played.
For detailed information – refer to the “Rules of Golf – Section 1


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 sigh 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.



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
