Course Care

To keep our Golf Course in top condition, it is imperative that we care for the course in the proper way.

Sometimes repairing something the wrong way can damage it more.

Please see below for a few tips on how to care for our course

Repairing Divots:

If a divot is taken, replace the divot and gently press it down with your foot. Cover with a little sand to aid the growing process

If the divot is shattered, please fill with sand

If you take a large divot on the teeing ground (especially par 3’s) please fill with sand

Repairing Pitch Marks:

Always start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer
Use repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of the mark, do not lift the soil upwards
Lightly tap down with putter

Bunkers

Leave the bunker in the condition that you would like to find it. This means:

Entering and exiting the bunker at it’s LOWEST point, not climbing down the highest point. This damages the wall and the ball gets plugged easier
Raking the bunker after your shot, and raking all of the marks you made, not just the divot
Playing a bad shot is no reason to not rake the bunker. Please be respectful of other members
After raking the bunker, please leave the rake IN the bunker at the lowest point, with the head of the rake facing the green

Other useful Information:

Do not lift the ball out of the hole with your putter head
When using a cart, please abide by the rules of the day set out by the Golf Shop. These rules will be based on the course condition of the day, and failure to abide by these rules may result in your cart being taken off you
Please take care around G.U.R marked areas, and don’t take trundlers into the G.U.R area
Greenkeepers have right of way at all times
If you take down a rope around the green to play a shot, please restore the rope to how it was
DO NOT take down the rope around the green to take your trundler through, the rope is there to stop that. Please walk around
Please keep carts at least 10 metres away from the teeing ground and green at all times. No trundlers or carts are allowed on the teeing ground

No Carts
