COVID-19 Golf Rules Changes

Due to the current situation regarding COVID–19 we have implemented a few changes to try and keep our golfers and staff as safe as possible.

The first being we have removed the rakes from the bunkers. If you find yourself in a bunker play your shot as normal and use your hand or foot to smooth the sand as you exit. This eliminates the need to touch a rake.

The second thing we have done is place the hole cups upside down in the hole. This is to make it easier to retrieve your ball after putting without the need to touch the flag stick. We have followed the lead from NZ golf and other courses to make these changes.

We would also like to remind you of the importance of regular hand sanitation and social distancing to reduce the chances of this virus spreading.We thank you all for your cooperation and hope this situation resolves itself promptly and everything goes back to normal.
