Etiquette
All players are asked to observe golf etiquette and to obey the rules of golf so that everyone on the course may enjoy their game. Here are some important things to remember:

 

  • No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.

  • No player should play until the players in front are out of range.

  • In the interest of all, players should play without delay.

  • Play ‘ready golf’; make your club selection whilst your playing partners are hitting. If you can take your practice swings without disturbing your partners whilst they are hitting – do so. If you can line up your putt whilst playing partners are playing – do so. Don’t wait until it is your turn before you start thinking about your shot!

  • Slow Play: Slow moving players should call faster moving players through. The lowest handicapped player is captain of any formation and is responsible for maintaining etiquette, procedure and speed of other players.

  • Calling through: If you have lost a ball, or are for any other reason are unable to maintain your place in the field, call the players behind you through. This is their right and should always be voluntarily and cheerfully given. A group playing a whole round is entitled to pass a group playing a shorter round. The term ‘group’ includes a single player.

  • When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green.

  • Cards should be marked at the next tee.

  • All players are requested to carry a sand bag and to fill in divots.
