Course and Club
Regulations and Etiquette
We make no apology for publication of this outline of the rules and etiquette expected at our Golf Club as we feel it is our duty to ensure that the standards of dress and behaviour in the Clubhouse and on the Course are kept as high as possible.
Making yourself aware of our rules will avoid any embarrassment to you or to the officials and members of the Club.
For us, the ownership and maintenance of this Course and Clubhouse are a source of pride and pleasure. Naturally, we hope every golfer who plays here will enjoy our course and facilities to the full.
We believe that this guide, asking as it does for respect for the traditions and rules, as well as for the due consideration for other players, is appropriate and will be appreciated by all who enjoy the finest the game of golf has to offer.
