Maintaining our course to the highest standard requires members to take pride in their course.
- Always start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer
- Use repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of the mark
- Do not lift the soil upwards
- Lightly tap down with putter
- Knock in all sides of the edge of the divot with your Club and press down with your foot to smooth
- On a weekly basis, the Course Maintenance team will fill divot scars with sand to smooth and allow for recovery
- Tee divots will be repaired with a specific seed/sand mix to ensure fast recovery and prevent weed infestation
- Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints, and then leave the rake with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.
- Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.
- Pull the rake toward you as you exit the bunker.
- If required rake other affected areas.
- Do not pile sand at the edge of the bunker. Push back excess sand.
Bunker Rake Policy
- Always leave rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle parallel to the line of flight of the hole being played.
- Rakes should be placed as far from the edge as possible.
Damage to Greens
- Flagsticks, Bags etc
Players should ensure that when putting down bags, or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it in handling the flagstick, or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.
- Handling the Flag
Don’t drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage. Always lower the flagstick by club or by hand.
Avoid damage to surrounds by placing the stick in the centre of the cup.
- Removing Ball
Players are requested NOT to use their putter to remove their golf ball from the hole.
- Please take note of all course directional signage and rope. These are put in place to protect our golf course.
