Flagsticks/Holes

The Club has made the decision to modify the depth of the hole to allow players to remove the ball without touching the flagstick, scores will be acceptable for either competition or supplementary score purposes.

In accordance with England Golf guidance, should the flagstick be leaning at an angle that would impede the ball dropping into the hole (e.g. the flagstick is leaning over in the wind) players are allowed to centre the flagstick in a safe manner that does not involve using the hand, even when wearing a glove or using a towel (for example by using a club). The centring of the flagstick may be allowed while another player putts.

Bunkers

As a consequence of removing bunker rakes players may pick and place within the bunker. The distance for preferred lies in the bunker is limited to 6 inches and the area cannot be smoothed before placing

Preferred Lies

No relief is allowed during the summer months
