Information on tees of the day, temporary local rules, course works or anything else that affects play is on the notice boards around the outside of the Clubhouse. Please check before you tee off.

The 1st tee is behind the Pro Shop. Check that the fairway is clear before teeing off. If you hit left of the trees please shout FORE!

By the green, follow the path on the left around the back of the 1st green to the 2nd tee.

Holes 1-4 are on the clubhouse side. From the 4th green you must go down the entrance drive and cross the road to play holes 5-13.

Please repair all pitch marks. All divots on fairways must be replaced and use the sand/seed mix in the boxes provided on each tee to repair divots in the teeing area.

If using a buggy, follow the route using the instructions provided keeping to paths where they are available.

Please do not take trolleys between greens and adjacent bunkers or onto teeing areas.

We want you to enjoy the course but please avoid slow play as this causes frustration and annoyance. Be aware of those following you and call faster players/smaller groups through if possible. 4 hours should be sufficient for a 4 ball to complete their round.
