Course Care

Responsible Cart Use

alt text

All cart users are held responsible for damage caused by golf carts under their control.

Drive in the rough where possible, on high spots if the course is wet, and drive at a safe speed.

Just to be clear, the picture shows damage to the course caused by irresponsible cart use, and will not be tolerated.

  Don't be like this person, who left a difficult lie (footprint) for someone else's ball to rest in.

  • Enter the bunker at the lowest point.

  • Pull rake towards you as you exit the bunker.

  • Always leave the rake in the centre of the bunker.

  • Do not pile up sand at the edge of the bunker.

Repairing Ball Marks

The picture shows the damage an unrepaired pitch mark leaves on the green.  Don't be this person, find and repair your ball mark and any others you can find.

  • Start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer.

  • Slowly ease the turf towards the centre of the mark. Do not lift soil upwards.

  • Tap down lightly with your putter.

Repairing Divots

  Don't be this person who left a large gash in the fairway surface.

  • Replace divot where possible. If unable to replace divot tap in all sides of the divot with your club or shoe.

Damage to Greens

To prevent damage to the greens:

  • Keep bags, trundlers and carts well away from the greens.

  • Always lower the flag stick by club or hand.

  • Always replace the flag stick in the centre of the cup.
