Committee Members Notice

We have recently experienced slower pace of play due to the increase of 2-3-4 balls now being permitted on the course.

Please read the below guidelines on pace of play and adhere to these to ensure all golfers enjoy their round.

A 3 ball should take 3 hours 40 mins and a 4 ball 4 hours to play an 18 hole round.

• Please play ready golf, 1st on the tee, tee off
• Shorter hitters to hit first
• Find and play your ball, then help others search
• If in doubt hit a provisional, only search for 3 minutes
• If you lose ground on the group ahead, check if you are holding the group behind up, if this is the case call them through
• Remember 1,2,3 and 4 balls all have equal standing on the course
• Size up your shot/line, up your putt while others are playing
• Leave your bag/trolley/buggy at the green exit

Remember, it’s the things we do between shots that speed us up!

Lets all stay safe, enjoy our golf and help others enjoy theirs.

CP Committee.
