Playing Etiquette


The safety of all players is paramount, so please,

  • Consider the safety of other players and do not play a shot until the group in front are out of range.
  • Consider the safety of people using the public footpath on the course.

Pace of Play

  • Keep up with the game in front, not just in front of the game behind.
  • Adopt ready golf – the honour is not always necessary in most games, so if someone is ready to play and it’s your honour and you’re not, invite them to play first.
  • Mark the scorecard after you’ve played your tee shot, or when someone else is playing theirs, but not on the green or before playing your tee shot.
  • Leave bags, trolleys or loose clubs close to the exit route to the next tee and not in front of the green.
  • Keep a tally of your score – don’t start to count shots when asked by your marker.
  • If possible watch each player’s ball and try to get a marker of where it landed.
  • Allow others through if searching for a lost ball causes delay to the group behind.
  • If you feel pressure from a group behind, let them through.

Course Care

  • Remember to rake a bunker after playing in it.
  • Remember to repair divots and pitch marks.
  • Remember to dispose of rubbish in the bins provided.

Above all, enjoy your game and remember the enjoyment of others.

Dress Code

  • On the course avoid collarless tee shirts; rugby/football shirts; tracksuits and jeans and opt for smart golfing attire. Golf shoes must be worn at all times on the course.
  • In the clubhouse smart, casual is acceptable. Please note that mobile phones should not be used on the course except for emergencies. 

Observing these rules will ensure that everyone has an enjoyable visit.
