General Course Etiquette
It is very important that everybody enjoys their golf and we ask you to have a look at the following to help speed up play and ensure your round is as enjoyable as possible.
Priority on the course
The Green staff ‘always’ have priority on the course. Occasionally during routine maintenance work the green staff may need to close a hole or green so we ask that if this is the case you pick up your ball and move on to the next hole. You will be notified in advance should any such work is being carried out on the day of your visit.
Groups playing in an official club competition should be waved through as soon as possible, regardless of what day it is. Please remember that ladies also play competitions from the red tees and should not be held up. You will also be notified in advance should any competitions are being played on the day of your visit.
Please be mindful of members of the public that use the public footpaths which are around the 12th, 13th and 14th holes.
Speed of play
We all play at different speeds but what is most important is that we play at a speed that suites us and does not upset the group behind
Always be aware of game behind you, if you are about to lose a hole or think you may have lost a ball and need time to look for it, please wave the group behind you through if they are waiting” before starting to search for it”.
Although a 2 ball will normally play quicker than a 3 or 4 ball on weekends when the course is busy it may not be practicable to let them through, especially if you are constantly waiting on the group in front.
You can wave a group through at any time even on a par 3.
Please keep your voice down especially when other players are taking their shots, and if you are in their line of sight please stop and stand still.
Where to Leave Your Bag or Trolley When Putting Out
Try to leave your bag so that when you have finished the hole your bag is between you and the next tee to avoid wasting time walking to the wrong side of the green to collect it only to walk back in front or behind the green to get to the next tee.
Please do not stand on or next to the green and mark your card, move away to the next tee and do it whilst you partner, or opponent is teeing off. The first player who has putted out should pick up the flag and have it ready to put back in the hole.
Cutting In & 9 Hole Competitions Teeing Off on the 10th Hole
You can only cut in if there is nobody playing the hole before you. We ask that if the 9th hole is in play you do not tee off until the group on the 9th hole has passed. Permission to start on the 10th hole should always be obtained from the Member of Staff working on each particular day before play
