We are now in full summer rules and we ask all members and visitors to continue repairing marks on the greens and replacing their divots on the fairways. Please also adhere to our dress code on the course, football shorts or tracksuit bottoms are not acceptable on the course. While playing the 7th hole we ask players to be mindful of players approaching from the 9th fairway if your ball should wander in the wrong direction from where it was intended to go. Please remember to shout fore to avoid hitting a fellow golfer.
