Rules and Etiquette

To get the most out of your game it is important to have a good understanding of the rules and codes of etiquette. This page is mainly intended to provide guidance to newcomers to the game, but it will hopefully also be of interest to more experienced golfers.

Repairing pitch marks

It is every golfer's responsibility to repair damage made to the green. If a pitch mark isn't repaired immediately and correctly, it can take three weeks or more for the damage to recover.

Check out the video clipon the right, which shows the correct way to repair pitch marks.

Please remember - if we all repaired our own pitch mark and one other on every green, there wouldn't be any.

Bunker etiquette and maintenance

Our course only has ten bunkers, but they need to be carefully maintained by golfers so that they remain in good condition, present a reasonable challenge and don't become a major task for the greenkeeping staff.

This USGA clip gives a useful account of what to do if you go in a bunker.

NB. Our policy is that rakes should be left inside the bunker.
