Local Winter Rules 2018-2019


The following will come into force from Monday 8th October 2018until further notice.

Fairway Protection Policy

When the status of the course is Green we would ask all members to please use a fairway mat or take their ball to the first cut of rough(nearest point)

When the status of the course is either Amber or Red the following rule will be in force:

A ball lying on the Fairway or “closely mown area” can be lifted, cleaned and placed on a personal winter mat within 6”(not nearer the hole) of its original position unless a putter is being used for the next shot.

If a player does not want to use a winter mat then the ball can be lifted and cleaned but then must be placed in the first cut of rough at the nearest point to where the ball was on the fairway

In the Rough and Plugged Balls

Preferred Lies are now in operation on all closely mown areas and in the rough

A ball in the rough may be lifted, cleaned and “placed” without penalty within 6” of its original place but NOT nearer the hole, the ball must be marked before it is lifted.

Exception: A player may not obtain relief under this Local Rule if the ball is clearly in an unplayable position.

Relief in Bunkers

If you are in a bunker you may without penalty mark your ball, lift and clean it, rake the bunker and place (not drop) the ball as near as possible to the position from which it was lifted. Please re-rake the bunker after playing your shot and moving on.
