Changes to Local Temporary Rules

By August 8, 2018 No Comments

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.

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.
