Local & Winter Rules of Golf

Local Rules

The Local Rules are on the back of the Scorecard, in the current Fixture Card and are also on display in both the Ladies and Gents Locker Rooms, a copy of which can be found below. Any Seasonal Local Rules that apply will be posted in both the Ladies and Gents Locker Rooms.


The period for Preferred Lies is now in effect, a player if they so wish may prefer the lie of their ball until the 15th May 2024.

This Local Rule applies when a ball lies in the General Area, which is cut to FAIRWAY HEIGHT or less. It does NOT apply to any area of the Rough.

When preferring their lie the player may lift their ball, clean it or substitute it for another ball and place it in accordance with the Local Rule.
