Changes to Local Temporary Rules

Two changes have been made to the Temporary Local Rules effective 9th Aug 2018. Preferred Lies – Through the Green – Due to the lack of rain fall and subsequent grass coverage the Golf Committee in consultation with the Course Super have implemented Preferred Lies (Max 30cm) Through the Green – This includes all areas excluding Bunkers, Hazards and the Putting Green Practise Putting Green Relief – Now to be treated as GUR Following feedback from a number of members the Golf Committee have amended the ruling for balls coming to rest on the Practise Putting Green. Relief can now be taken under Rule 25.1 being within one club length of the nearest point of relief not nearer to the hole. Players may still use the synthetic grass area previously used as a drop zone As always please check the Temporary Local Rules displayed on the Notice Board near the 1st Tee and in the Pro Shop before commencing your round of golf.

From the Course Superintendant – 11th and 12th tees

With the current condition of the 12th tee and in preparation for the replacement of this tee, the markers will be moved further up the fairway until the new tee is completed. The Hole will Remain a Par 4. Similarly the 11th tee has been seeded and markers will be in the forward position to give this tee the best opportunity to build some growth. If you could keep to the front of the tee it would be helpful to us all. Thankyou.
