Care of the Course

Care of the Course

Barry Neville our Head Greenkeeper and his team work very hard to maintain the course to a high standard providing all of us with an excellent playing surface on which to play and enjoy our game of golf. The following simple actions will help maintain those standards during the playing day.

Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them and any nearby made by others.

Repair of Divots and Ball-Marks
Players should carefully repair any divot hole made by them and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball (whether or not made by the players himself). Can't find your pitch mark..... Should have gone to Specsavers!

Preventing Unnecessary Damage
Players should avoid causing unnecessary damage to the course by removing Divots when taking practice swings, Winter Rules allow friendly matches to tee the ball in the fairway, please do so if appropriate, also putting with the flag left in greatly reduces wear around the hole. The head of a club “must not” be used to retrieve a ball from the hole.

Thank you for reading this, you all make such a difference when you follow these simple steps.

Happy Golfing!
