Course Care

This is your golf course, so it is your responsibility to leave the course in the best possible condition for fellow golfers.

GROUND UNDER REPAIR

  • Assist the recovery of any GUR areas marked out by white lines or white pegs by avoiding them where possible.

RESPECT THE GREENS

  • Avoid standing too close to the hole.
  • Place the flagstick down by hand. Don’t drop the flagstick on the green.
  • Retrieve your golf ball from the hole by hand. Don’t use your putter.
  • Take care to replace the flag in the centre of the cup, to avoid damaging the sides.

MOTORISED GOLF CARTS

  • Drive on paths wherever possible.
  • Don’t drive on tee-off areas, between bunkers and greens, or within ten metres of any green.
  • In the approach to the greens, don’t drive between the solid blue lines and the greens.

DIVOTS

  • The damage to the course caused by your club after your swing has lifted a chunk of turf and soil.

TO REPAIR

  • Carry a sand bucket with you at all times.
  • Use an iron to knock the sides of the divot back into place.
  • Top-dress the divot area lightly with sand.

BUNKERS

  • If you need to play your ball out of a bunker, you must smooth the sand afterward.

TO REPAIR

  • Place the rake next to your entry/exit point on the edge of the bunker.
  • Walk in and play your shot.
  • Retrace your steps and swap out your club for the rake.
  • Return to where you played your shot and rake, using a push-pull action and working your way backwards towards the edge of the bunker.
  • As you progress toward the edge of the bunker and exit, push the sand toward the centre of the bunker.

PITCH/PUG/PLUGMARKS

  • The indent left on the green or the fringe surrounding the green when your ball lands heavily.

TO REPAIR

  • Carry a single or dual-pronged divot repair tool with you at all times. (Yes, oddly enough, this tool is not used to repair divots!)
  • Insert the prong(s) into the ground around the impact zone and push the handle towards the centre of the pitchmark, moving the soil underneath the grass toward the pitchmark.
  • Lightly tap down the area with the sole of your putter head.
