Rules

All further guests will be required to pay full visitors’ rates. Guests may not play the course until the requisite green fee has been paid. The visitor ticket must be displayed on the guest’s golf bag.
If the Professional’s shop is closed, a ticket must be obtained from the bar. The full rate must be paid regardless of the number of holes to be played. Guests are allowed to play the course Mondays to Fridays. Only one guest may be introduced by a Member up to 1:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer.

Dress Regulations

At Liberton Golf Club the intention is to provide a relaxed and enjoyable golfing experience while still respecting standards of dress, etiquette and behaviour both on and off the course.
In order to achieve this balance, Council ask that all members, guests and visitors adhere to the standards set out below.

Clubhouse

Smart casual must be worn at all times by both Ladies and Gentlemen and Juniors.  These standards will also apply to guests of members and visitors.

NO Football/ rugby shirts or shorts; collarless T-shirts and vests; headgear, including golf caps; waterproof clothing worn on the course; golf shoes; jogging/ track suits; torn jeans; combat style shorts; work- related stained clothing/ footwear etc.

Course

Appropriate golf attire must be worn at all times.

NO Football/ rugby shirts or shorts; denim jeans (including any jeans worn under waterproof clothing); jogging/ track suits; collarless T-shirts and vests; training shoes; combat style shorts; work related stained clothing/ footwear etc.

Please note: Blade collared golf attire is permitted on the course.

These dress regulations do not apply to children up to age 10.

The Club reserves the right to refuse use of the Clubhouse and Course if anyone is improperly dressed.

Clubhouse Hours

The Clubhouse opening hours will be published on the website, e-mailed to all members and will be posted on the Club Notice boards.

Etiquette

Members are expected to observe a high standard of etiquette on and off the course. The reserved parking spaces in the main car park must be left vacant for those entitled to use them. This includes the allocated disabled spaces. Parking in front of the clubhouse and on the drive is strictly prohibited in daylight hours.
On the course bunkers must be smoothed over, divots must be replaced and pitch marks on greens must be repaired. Rakes should be placed in centre of bunker after use. Due consideration must be given at all times to members playing adjoining holes. Two-ball matches have precedence over, and are entitled to pass, three-ball and four ball matches. A single player playing on their own has exactly the same standing on the course as any other group.
Members should endeavour to play at the pace of the course. If however, one hole is lost to the group in front, players behind must be invited to play through.
Council will not hesitate to act against Members and their guests who do not observe the etiquette of the game of golf and the behaviour expected at Liberton Golf Club.

Adverse Weather Conditions

In the event of severe weather affecting the conditions out on the course, and threatening the continuation of play, the following procedures will be implemented by Council Members of Liberton Golf Club. In adopting these procedures, the Council has referred to Rule 5.7 (When Players May or Must Stop Play) and Rule 33-2(d) (course unplayable).The procedures will be as follows:
1) Immediate Suspension – all players must stop play at once and must not make another stroke until the committee resumes play.
2) Normal Suspension – while playing a hole – if any player in the group has started a hole the players may choose either to stop playing or to play out the hole.
A suspension of play for a dangerous situation will be signalled by one prolonged note of the siren. All other suspensions will be signalled by three consecutive notes of the siren.
In either case, resumption of play will be signalled by two short notes of the siren.
Players are asked to make themselves familiar with Rule 5.7 as penalties may be incurred for breach of the rule.
It should be noted that prior to the commencement of play on any day, it is the Head Greenkeeper or his assistants who have the sole discretion as to whether the course is open for play. In the absence of the Head Greenkeeper or his Assistants, the Professional will take such a decision. In the absence of the aforementioned, the decision shall be made by a Member of Council. Such decision is binding on all members.

Play During Fog

In the event of fog obscuring visibility on the course, the Professional or Head Greenkeeper will have the discretion to close the course if they consider that the continuance of play may endanger players. The closure of the course will be signalled by an air horn using the procedure detailed above for adverse weather conditions. Members who continue to play after the signal has been given do so at their own risk.

Play During Lightning

In the event of lightning in the area, the Professional or Head Greenkeeper will have the discretion to close the course if they consider that the continuance of play may endanger players. The closure of the course will be signalled by an air horn using the procedure detailed above for adverse weather conditions. Members must discontinue play immediately and seek appropriate shelter.

Competition Entry

Members who enter competitions must not withdraw without adequate notice or reasonable excuse. Council will take action against Members who fail to turn up without prior warning being given.
ALL competitors must sign in on the Entry Sheet prior to commencing play, even if they do not wish to participate in the sweeps. Members may not participate in the sweeps unless they enter the Competition. Members should sign in at least 10 minutes prior to their tee time).
Members are reminded that ALL cards for Medal competitions MUST be returned, including ‘No Returns’, whether or not the card is completed. Failure to do so may result in the suspension of the Member’s handicap.
The Player’s Membership number and name must be printed at the top of the scorecard. The card must be signed by both the player and the marker. Cards submitted without both signatures will result in the player being disqualified. Starting and finishing times must also be entered on the card, where Council require this to be done.
Where competitions are played on more than one designated day, Members may only enter once.
The last tee-time in any competition, unless otherwise stated, will be not less than four hours before the closure of the clubhouse to enable the cards to be returned and the result, including the CSS, to be calculated as soon as possible.
All gentlemen’s major competitions, medals, hole and hole competitions and summer league matches will be played from the white tees. All other competitions are to be played from the Blue tees which are the designated tee of the Day.
All Ladies competitions are to be played from the RED tees.

Handicaps

The Competition Standard Scratch Score (CSS) will be calculated as soon as possible after each medal round and handicaps will be adjusted accordingly. Until such adjustments are advised via the notice boards or on the club website, players are responsible for adjusting their own handicaps and should assume the CSS was unaltered from the normal SSS of the course. Any query on handicaps should be referred to the Handicap Convenor.

Noticeboards

Members are advised to regularly peruse the club notice boards and the club website at www.libertongc.co.uk where all communications from the Council will be displayed.
