Local Rules

Drop from paths and roads on the course

A ball may be lifted, cleaned and dropped within 1 club length from your nearest point of relief, not nearer the hole.  Note that your nearest point of relief may leave you in a less favourable position so ensure you assess that before lifting your ball.  If you choose to take a drop full relief from the path must be taken.


Drop from immovable obstructions near the putting green (e.g. Spinkler Heads)

A ball within two club lengths of an immovable obstruction that lies within two club lengths of the putting green (such as a sprinkler head) may be lifted, cleaned and dropped within one club length, not nearer the hole.


Use of Buggies

Buggies are permitted to use in club competitions except for the Saturday competition where a valid medical exemption is required.  Subject to course conditions the use of buggies on a given day may be prohibited for all players.  Please observe notices or check in the pro-shop if you are unsure.

Practising on the Course Rule 5.2b

Local Rule 5.2b

A player may not practise on the competition course before or between rounds in a competition played over consecutive days. For example, in an 18 hole competition in which a player either plays on a Friday or Saturday, a player may NOT practice on the course on either day regardless of which day the player is playing his/her round.

Penalty for Breach of Rule 5.2b:

  • Penalty for first breach: General Penalty (applied to the player’s first hole).

  • Penalty for second breach: Disqualification.
