Course is currently Open

Work has started replacing the main water supply to the Craighouse development. This will last 4 weeks. We are legally required to grant access to the contractors to complete the work and to minimise disruption the route will be from Kestrel Cottage by the 14th tee, north up the right hand side of the 14th fairway and across the fairway at its narrowest point and then up by the wall, to the back of the 14th green into the Craighouse site. There will be some inconvenience playing the 13th, 14th & 15th holes, however weekend play will be unaffected as no weekend works are planned. During the work, the 13th and 15th tees will be at the bottom of the hill during weekdays but revert to their original positions at weekends. The 14th hole will be taken out of play completely from Monday to Friday but should revert to normal play at weekends. Idverde Ltd have been contracted to re-instate the course to its original state and we will keep you informed of progress of the work.

  • ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF A BALL ON THE PUTTING GREEN

    Local Rule Effective from Sunday 1st January 2017

    This Local Rule eliminates the penalty for any accidental movement of a ball or ball-marker on the putting green. If the ball was accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment, there is no penalty and the ball is to be replaced and played from its original location.

    The movement of a ball on a putting green has been one of the many topics discussed as part of The R&A’s and USGA’s ongoing Rules Modernisation initiative to consider comprehensive changes to the Rules of Golf. For these particular situations, it was noted that the shape, slope and condition of many putting greens today increase the chances that a ball at rest on a putting green will move, and it can be difficult to determine whether a player caused the ball to move or whether the ball was moved by wind or other natural causes. Furthermore, when a ball moves while the player is doing nothing more than taking normal actions to prepare for a stroke, it may seem unfair for the player to be penalised.
