Latest Course Information

(20 Jan 22) The course is now open. Players are reminded to repair pitch marks and players are also reminded for all forms of golf at all times, whether it be for social, practice or competition, WINTER FAIRWAY MATS are now mandatory on all short-mown areas of the course. Failure of members or visitors to use winter mats will result in them being asked to leave the course and subsequent disqualification from competitions if relevant. 

(04 Jan 22)  Following a number of requests for clarification the committee have redrafted the local rule for playing off mats to include first and second cuts i.e. semi rough and mown rough.

Use of Mats
With effect from Wednesday 5th Jan 22 winter mats will now be mandatory on all mown areas of the course (this includes the fairway and the first cut semi and second cut mown rough) when any club other than a putter is being used to play the ball. (It does not include uncut rough).

Hazards: Ball must be played as it lies unless relief is taken under rules of golf.
The mat must be placed as near as possible to where the ball originally lay, and the ball must be placed on the mat.
The ball may be cleaned when lifted. If a tee is used to secure the mat into the ground, the ball must not be placed on the tee.

This rule applies for all forms of golf at all times, social, practice or competition until further notice. Failure to comply with this rule will result in disqualification from competitions.
The redrafted rule will be posted on the club notice board, at the first tee, and via all usual digital channels.

(01 Jan 22) The course and the club house will REOPEN tomorrow (Sunday) morning. Players are reminded that the back half of the 6th green is still closed and should a ball land behind the 6th green, then players are asked not to chip over the GUR but should, instead, lift the ball without penalty, and place the ball no nearer the hole. It may mean, in some instances, that the ball will have to be placed either side of the 6th green and possibly in the semi rough.
