Following the recent rainfall it has

been decided to amend the existing Winter Rules with effect from
Tuesday 2nd January 2018


“A ball lying anywhere within the confines of the course, excluding hazards, may, without penalty, may be lifted, cleaned and placed within 1 club length of where it originally lay, but not nearer the hole or on a putting green.  A player may move or place the ball once and after the ball has been so moved it is in play.”


Penalty for breach of Local Rule:

Match play – Loss of Hole

Stroke play – Two Strokes.
