Fantastic Junior Performances Brings Title

New Course Rules
As we move into the main playing season this is just a reminder that there have been changes to the rules of golf and also to the set up of the golf course.
New local rules will be posted in the locker rooms and in the Pro shop.
On the course the OOB down the 1st has been extended to include the area used for cutting turf, the reedbeds and the soil storage heap. This area of OOB is also in play when playing the 3rd. Please do not retrieve golf balls from the reedbed as golf shoes will perforate the delicate butyl liner.
On the 4th the OOB on the ravine has been extended right to the wall behind the 5th tee.
The ditch across the 6th/15th is a yellow penalty area. Note that you should keep the point where it crossed the edge between you and the pin when taking your drop. Given the terrain this will probably be higher up the slope than the position the ball finished in. Also remember you can go back as far as you like and this may be helpful in order to find a flatter spot to drop in.
The area on the corner of the field when playing 6/15 which was previously a free drop marked by green posts is now a red penalty area. This means you don’t need to find your ball if it is certain it finished in the penalty area. If you are fortunate to find your ball in a playable position then you can play it without penalty.
There is no free relief from footpaths unless they are artificially surfaced. The only exception is the path at the back of the 10th tee and the across the 12th (but not 9/11) which are being marked in blue.
Please don’t forget to replace divots and repair pitch marks.
