People 75 and over can use forward tees (blue for men, orange for ladies) if they wish. This is NOT COMPULSORY, however if you choose to play off forward tees you must notify organisers when entering competition as handicaps will be based upon the slope relevant to the tee chosen. It is NOT ALLOWABLE to play from forward tees and regular tees in same round.
On first tee Masters 1 (White Course) we WILL PLAY yellow blocks unless the blocks have been moved right back, PAST THE PALM TREE (vis. when there is or has been a competition), in which case we will tee off at a point LEVEL WITH THE PALM TREE. This also applies to the 2nd tee Masters 1 (White course)
Drop zones will NOT be used except on 1st hole White Course and 3rd hole Red Course. Because of the bad state of the current designated drop zone areas the drop zone for White Hole 1 is ORANGE TEE BLOCKS. For Red Hole 3 ONE CLUB LENGTH from the designated area. The ball MUST be dropeped not placed.
Handicaps will only be adjusted following "singles competitions" or at the request of an individual based upon general play and only then with justification by production of relevant documentation i.e. scorecards or handicap certificate from home club.
"GIMMIES" ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED, please putt out.
For official R&A rules please go to www.randa.org or click on blue R&A Rules button at the top
of the page.
a) Players should exchange cards and should not mark a partners (wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend) card, unless in a 3 ball group where it is unavoidable.
b) Players should not mark more than 1 card unless agreed with organiser.
c) Scores should be entered correctly (we can all make mistakes occasionally) and it is individual players responsibility to ensure their scorecard is correct. SCORES WILL BE CHECKED.
d) Markers should also record their own score in space provided on scorecard. This helps when checking scores.
e) Scores should be highlighted preferably by circling the score on top right of card
It is usual for a "team captain" to mark the scorecard, however as we can all make mistakes it is advisable for a second person in the team to also keep a scorecard.
When marking a card on behalf of a team it is ESSENTIAL to record the score of the players who's score is relevant to each individual hole. Probably the best way of doing this is to place the initials of each player at the top of a column and record accordingly.
IT IS AN INDIVIDUAL'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ADHERE TO THESE GUIDELINES AND ALSO TO ENSURE THAT THEIR PLAYING PARTNERS DO THE SAME.
