Gimme putts are allowed as long as they are no longer than the metal part of a standard putter. If in doubt putts should be measured against a normal putter.

We play off yellow tees, as marked by the normal yellow painted wooden markers and use the white tee stroke index. Not the forward shortened course yellow tees.

No handicap adjustments up or down this year.

No 3/4 handicap reduction when winter greens in operation. Players play off full handicap in all situations.

Mats may be used if your ball lies in the semi rough or on the fairway.
Please remember that if you choose to lift your ball and place it in the semi rough to play it, you must take it to the nearest side from where it lies. If you opt to take the ball from the fairway to the rough you must play the ball off the grass and cannot place it on a mat.

Free drop for ball lost in soft muddy wet area now only permitted if playing partners agree the ball was lost in the fairway and not in the rough or semi rough.

If your ball has is lost and it is known or virtually certain that your ball came to rest on the fairway in an area which is wet, muddy or soft, you may take a free drop at the nearest point of relief from the spot where you and your playing partners agree that the ball was lost.

The rule relies on your playing partners knowing or being virtually certain that your ball landed on the fairway, but you do not have to see the ball land which would cover those balls stuck over the horizon on a blind hole.

We must rely on playing partners to ensure that the new rule is applied fairly and is not abused, so playing partners should do their best to spot other players shots to allow them to make a fair assessment of the landing area of the shot. The new rule will apply to both the Saturday and the Wednesday winter leagues.

Weekly sweepstake will only be paid out if 4 or more players play. Winners must complete the full 16 holes. Incomplete rounds do not count for handicap adjustments.

Players should make up their 4 ball games in advance or as and when they arrive on the day. Players should ensure that they book their game onto the VMS System before play to comply with track and trace rules.The last game must ensure that all players are accommodated and no one is left behind.

As in previous years, we will play only 16 holes, cutting out the 10th and 11th holes. The 18 hole and 9 hole courses will remain open throughout the winter so no need to play a composite course this year.

If 18 hole course is closed and we must play twice around 9 hole course – Play 16 holes off full or revised handicap by playing the 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th,6th,7th,8th, then cut over onto the 2nd,3rd,4th,5th,6th,7th,8th,9th.

The cost to enter the league is £10 per head payable to Charlie Paul on or soon after 21 October which will used for a weekly prize fund which will pay out £3 for Best Stableford score, £2 second best stableford score, £1 for third best stableford score.    The weekly sweep winnings, will be paid out at a prizegiving lunch sometime in March and any remaining funds will be used toward the lunch.

The ongoing Prize list and results will be collated and published each week on the results section of the club website

Players have around 24 weeks from Wednesday 21 October 2020 to Wednesday 31 March 2020 to accumulate their best 6 stableford scores.
