Course Care

course-care-01

Players are required to adopt good etiquette practices in accordance with the highest traditions of the game.

The Club By-laws require that every player shall carry a sand bucket or like equipment to facilitate the filling of divots and require that all divots be repaired.

This includes repairing pitch marks, raking bunkers and granting priority on the course to Club employees engaged in course works. Not more than two balls may be used when practising on the course. Use of the Club’s practice driving range requires players to play from the white markers displayed on the practice tee.

Restrictions apply to the use of practice balls on the practice tee to ensure the safety of golfers and staff. Check with the Professionals on these requirements.

course-care-02The lowest handicapped player in the group is asked to assume responsibility for keeping the group in its position within the field and completing play within reasonable time and for other matters of etiquette. Slow play is viewed as selfish play and must be discouraged.

Provision is made for the suspension of playing rights and the suspension of membership or exclusion from membership in the case of repeated failures to comply with the Club’s course protection, care and etiquette by-law.
