Rules regarding dress must be strictly adhered to, both on the course and in the Clubhouse.
ETIQUETTE OF THE GAME OF GOLF
No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or playing a stroke.
The player who has the honour should be allowed to play before his opponent or fellow competitor tees his ball.
No player should play until the party in front is out of range.
In the interests of all, players should play without delay.
A player who has incurred a penalty should intimate the fact to his opponent or marker as soon as possible.
Players searching for a ball should allow players coming up on them to pass. They should signal to the players following them to pass and should not continue to play until those in front are out of range.
Through the green, a player should ensure that any turf cut or displaced by him is replaced at once and divots filled with sand.
Any damage to the putting green made by the ball or a player is to be carefully repaired.
Players should ensure that, when dropping bags of the flagstick, no damage is done to the green, and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it, or in handling the flagstick. The flagstick should be squarely and properly replaced before leaving the green.
When the result of a hole has been determined, the players should immediately leave the green.
Players should not stand in the line of their opponent’s or partner’s putt. If they cannot putt out, they are requested to mark their ball.
Members must make every effort to familiarise themselves with the Rules of Golf.
Members are requested to take sand buckets to fill divot marks and protect the course at all times.
It is the responsibility of the lowest marker in the group to ensure that the above points are carried out.
To help keep the club friendly, players are requested to share social time with persons with whom they played that day.
MEMBERS’ ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THE FOLLOWING CLUB REGULATIONS
It is the responsibility of the Proposer and Seconder immediately a Nominee is elected to membership to see the new member is introduced to other members, is advised of the rules governing the conduct of the Club and, above all, is sufficiently advanced in the knowledge of the Rules of Golf to be competent to perform the duty of marker to a fellow competitor. Please see that you play with the Nominee until he is thus prepared.
All visitors to the Club should be properly recorded in the visitors book by the accompanying member immediately on arrival at the Clubhouse. This is a requirement of the Liquor Act and must be strictly observed.
Spikes are not allowed in the Clubhouse. Only buggies with wide slick tyres may be used on the golf course. Mobile phones must be switch off or not taken onto the golf course.
SPECIAL NOTES TO MEMBERS
The co-operation and assistance of all members in observing the above requirements will assist the various committees to carry out their respective duties and obligations to your satisfaction. Check your card, hole by hole, with your marker before signing and handing in. Failure to do so might cause disqualification. All competition cards must be handed in. Bring any complaints to the attention of the sub-committee concerned. Harmony is very important. The spirit of a golf club is given to it by its members.
KEEP OUR CLUB THE CLUB WITH A GOOD SPIRIT
