Rule 2. Do not bend down in the rough and say "just checking if it's my ball"......we know what your doing!!!!!

Rule 3. Whilst looking for your ball in the bushes out of site you must clap your hands at all times........


All golf balls to be marked with your own identification and declared when teeing off or changed through loss of ball etc.

You must putt out anything over 9".

You are not allowed to improve your lie by treading behind the ball with your foot, especially left handers!

Handicaps are changed at the discretion of the handicap secretary after at least 3 scorecards have been entered.

All complaints to go through the Chairman to be discussed at the committee meetings.

If at the end of the season 2 or more players in the top 3 are level on scores the winner will be decided on his or her next best score and so on until a decision is reached. Not the toss of a coin !!!!!
