Course Care

Bunkers

Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them,  and then leave the rake with the handle pointing towards the tee of the hole being played.

  • Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.
  • Pull rake towards you as you exit the bunker.
  • If required, rake other affected areas.
  • Do not pile sand at the edge of the bunker. 
  • Push back excess sand. 

 



 

Bunker Rake Policy


          Always leave rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle parallel to the 
          line of the flight of the hole being played. Rakes should be placed as far from
          the edge as possible.

Repairing Ball Marks on the Green

  • Use the repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of
  • the mark. Do not lift the soil upwards.
  • Lightly tap down with the putter.
  • Your completed repair should look like this.

Handling the Flagstick

  •       Please do not drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage.
  •       Always use the club to lower the flagstick.
  •       Or, hold the flag stick carefully avoiding damaging the putting surface.
  •       Always place the flag stick carefully in the centre of the cup.

Flagsticks, Bags etc.


Payers should ensure that, when putting down bags, or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green, and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it in handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.

Players are requested NOT to use their putter to remove their golf ball from the hole.
