WINTER LEAGUE LOCAL RULES

 

Mats – The use of mats is voluntary but, in order to protect the fairways, the Committee would encourage all players to use mats for all fairway shots where a divot is liable to be taken.

 

Fairways – preferred lies are in operation throughout the Winter League. Position of the ball should be marked, ball may be cleaned and replaced within 6 inches of the marker (but not nearer the hole).

Rough – players may take relief, without penalty, for a ball embedded in it’s own pitch mark or from casual water in the rough, provided permission is approved by playing partner. Blue line marks edge of rough on 17th hole.

Bunkers – Any ball landing in a bunker may be lifted and placed within 6 inches but no nearer the hole. Casual water in a bunker – relief as per Rules of Golf. Leaves in bunkers - see temporary local rule.

Lost ball – for any lost ball (except a ball which has been hit out of bounds) a player may either

  • play another ball, under penalty of  1 stroke, from the spot where the original ball was played (ie playing 3 if tee shot lost or 4 if 2nd shot lost)

or

  • choose to play another ball, under penalty of 2 strokes, from the spot where it is agreed with the player’s marker that the original ball was deemed to be lost.

 

  •  In the case of a ball hit out of bounds the player MUST play again, under penalty of 1 stroke from where the original ball was played (ie playing 3 if tee shot lost or 4 if 2nd shot lost)

.

Shortened Coursein the event of weather conditions requiring play on a reduced number of holes the following rules will apply:

  

  1.  if 15 or more holes are in play, competitors should enter a par score for the holes which are closed and scores will count towards scratch and nett scores but closed holes will not count towards eclectic scores. Normal entry fees will apply.
  2.  If less than 15 holes are in play, scores at holes in play will count towards eclectic score. Competitors should only record scores for those holes played. Entry fee will be reduced to £1 and sweep and 2’s will still be available. Handicap allowance for the purpose of the sweep will be announced before the start of play and will depend on the number of holes in play.
