LOCAL RULES AND COURSE ETIQUETTE
Please take time to familiarise yourself with our local rules – these are printed on the reverse of our scorecards and can also be found on our FAQ page. In particular, we draw your attention to the following:
- Out of Bounds – which is beyond all boundary fences/walls, beyond all white posts (left hand side on the 2nd and right hand side on the 9th***) and balls landing on the driving range.
- Keep up with the speed of play and let faster players through.
- Please, please, please repair your pitchmarks.
- No bag sharing allowed – each player must have their own set of clubs
***The 9th fairway runs alongside the back of the 5th green – we have many complaints of golfers trying to get over the pond in one shot playing over the 5th green, and have had a couple of instances where people on the 5th green have been hit. Please play an appropriate tee shot on the 9th.

Whilst there is a public footpath that runs through the course where members of the public are permitted to walk their dogs, we do not allow dogs to accompany golfers on the course under any circumstances (except guide dogs).
We aren’t particularly strict about what you wear to play golf, however a suitable tee or polo shirt must be worn at all times (no ‘vests’), along with suitable weather appropriate footwear – ideally golf shoes.
