KNOWLEDGE OF THE RULES OF GOLF
It is the duty of each and every player to acquire a proper knowledge of the rules of golf and also the local rules. New members should have an understanding of these rules before being awarded a handicap. Rule books may be obtained from the office during business hours 8:30am - 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
Members should become familiar with those as appear on the back of scorecards and before commencing play check the notice board outside the Pro Shop for any additions or alterations to the rules. Players must wait for the signal from a greenkeeper working on a green or the fairway before playing up. Players must wait until greenkeepers cutting fairways are out of range before playing.
During the months of May to August the courses may be closed due to frost. When this occurs no play is to commence before 9:00am. All players report to the starter before proceeding to the course.
CARDS FOR HANDICAPPER
All cards should be returned even though a player may have incurred disqualification or has failed to complete a round. Cards must be completed correctly and fully with name, date, computer number and handicap details.
On specified visitors' days green fees are $10, providing a Club member accompanies the visitor.
Members inviting a visitor on Saturdays must play non-competition, unless prior arrangement is made with the General Manager.
