- Out of Bounds (Rule 18.2)
a) In or beyond the stream to the left of the 1st/10th and 2nd/11th holes.
b) Beyond any line of white stakes bounding the course.
c) On or beyond the Racecourse on every part of the course except when playing the 5th hole and 6th hole (please see Rule 2).
d) Beyond the white stakes to the left of the 7th hole.
- No Play Zone
The racecourse area beyond the line of blue posts at the 5th/14th hole and 6th/13th hole is a “No Play Zone” from which play is prohibited. If a player’s ball lies in such an area, or if such an area interferes with the player’s stance or the area of his/her intended swing, the player must take relief under Rule 16.1.
- Penalty Areas (Rule 17)
Penalty Areas are defined by red or yellow stakes.
- Young Tree Identified by Stakes
If such a tree interferes with a player’s stance or the area of his/her intended swing, the ball must be lifted without penalty and dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in Rule 16.1 (Immovable Obstruction). The ball may be cleaned when so lifted.
- Fixed Sprinkler Heads
All fixed sprinkler heads are immovable obstructions and relief from interference by them may be obtained under Rule 16.1. In addition, such an obstruction on or within two club lengths of the putting green of the hole being played intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, the player may obtain relief, without penalty, as follows:
If a ball lies off the putting green but not in a penalty area or bunker and is within two club lengths of the intervening obstruction, it may be lifted, cleaned and dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay which:
a) is not nearer the hole
b) avoids such intervention
c)is not in a penalty area or on a putting green.
- Nine Hole Course
Where holes are identified by number, the local rule also applies to the corresponding hole on the second nine.
Penalty for Breach of Local Rules 2, 4 and 5:
MATCH PLAY – Loss of Hole
STROKE PLAY – Two Strokes

- All divots made on the fairway must be replaced (and in the rough).
- Bunkers must be raked after use. Please leave the rake in the bunker.
- Pitch marks on greens must be repaired.
- Wide wheeled trolleys are allowed on the course (except when a trolley ban is in operation), but please observe directional trolley signs.
- Please keep to pathways wherever possible.
- Please allow greens staff to complete any maintenance work on green or fairway before continuing to play.
- Try to avoid slow play and invite faster players to come through.
- Place all litter in the bins provided.
We kindly advise all visiting golfers to bring carry bags during the winter months, as trolleys may not be allowed if the weather is poor.
