Etiquette

Players should play without delay and keep up to the group in front. If a player believes his ball may be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds, to save time, he should play a provisional ball.

No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.

No player should play until the players in front are out of range.

Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They should not search for five minutes before doing so. Having allowed the group behind to play through, they should not continue play until that group has passed and is out of range.

Edges of divots must be broken down with the foot or a club to smooth them out and lightly filled with sand.

Bunkers must be raked smooth before leaving, raking the sand away from the edge.

Motorised buggies are restricted from operating within 5 metres of any green and two (2) only in each group. To be read in conjunction with the Motorised Buggy Policy.

Players should walk to the next tee in such a way so that, following players, can hit to the green without undue delay.

Avoid slow play.
