Care of our Course

It has become apparent over the last few months that certain Course Etiquette is not being adhered to.

The use of Caddy Cars & Buggies.  All Members & their guests are reminded that if they are using a Caddy Car

or Buggy and are approaching a Greenside Bunker they should always make sure that they go round the

OUTSIDE OF THE BUNKER & not between the Bunker & the Green.

Similarly Caddy Cars & Buggies should be kept away from the fringes of the Greens & not taken on to the Tees.

Our Greenstaff are consistently producing our Course in great condition & it is up to us all with just a little

consideration to help them when we can.

Urgent Notice

Please be aware of dangers when playing 10th and 11th holes

The Club have recently received complaints from residents of Greenpark as a number of properties have recently been damaged due to stray golf balls which are suspected to be due to overhit second/third shots at 10th hole or tee shots hit too far right at 11th.

This has now become extremely serious due to the number of balls which are causing damage and also can potentially cause injury to residents.

Please can every member take extra care when playing in this area of the course and if a ball is hit out of bounds this must be reported to the professional (or to office/bar in his absence) as the Club must keep track of numbers hit out of bounds in this area of the course as residents are becoming extremely anxious and could potentially take this matter further if this was to continue. Visitors to the Club will also be advised to take additional care.
