Etiquette

Course Care

  • Please repair all divots in fairway and rough
  • Please repair pitch marks on greens and rake bunkers after play, leaving the rake on the outside of the bunker with the handle pointing parallel to the fairway being played
  • Players are requested to walk quickly between shots and call faster players through. Remember your position in the field is immediately behind the players in front, not merely in front of the players behind
  • Use the golf carts with care. They are to be driven at a responsible speed and in accordance with the rules
  • Lost ball – if you hit a ball into an area where the ball may be difficult to find or out of bounds, always play a provisional ball from the same spot before you leave that position to go and find the first ball.
  • Players are requested to use the bathroom facilities within the Clubhouse or on Course either prior to playing, or during the game, if required, and are to refrain from using the Course as their bathroom.
