These rules apply throughout the year to all golfers using both hire and privately owned equipment. Daily traffic lights will be published on the website, V1 App and will be available by contacting the pro shop. This system is for equipment use only, hole closures, course condition & restrictions will still be in effect and displayed separately.

 

Green Board

Players may use buggies and trolleys ‘through the green’ but must follow all instructions, directions, and signs.

In particular players must not:

  • Take buggies or trolleys on to any putting surface or tee area.
  • Take trolleys or buggies into areas marked as GUR.

Players with buggies or trolleys should also utilise the paths whenever possible.

 

Green Board Plus

(This board will probably be used during or after severe weather conditions in the summer months)

As the Green Board with the following additional restriction:

  • Buggies or private single seat ride-ons may only be used on the course by disabled players & those with qualifying health conditions as detailed below.

NOTE: Trolleys do not need winter wheels when green board or green board plus conditions apply.

 

Amber Board

  • Trolleys must be fitted with hedgehog or winter wheels for all players and may be used ‘through the green’.
  • Buggies or private single seat ride-ons are not permitted for non-disabled players.
  • Buggies or private single seat ride-ons for disabled players & those with qualifying health conditions can be used on the ‘winter buggy/ trolley course’ only as detailed below.

  • Trolleys are not permitted for non-disabled players.
  • Buggies & private single seat ride-ons are not permitted for any players.
  • Trolleys for disabled players & those with qualifying health conditions can be used on the ‘Winter buggy/trolley course’ only and must be fitted with hedgehog or winter wheels.

 

Black Board

As the red board but with further restrictions as detailed on the course status found on our website, V1 App or by contacting the pro shop.

 

 

 

Disabled players & those with qualifying health conditions defined

As defined under section 6 of the Equality Act 2010.

Players will automatically qualify as disabled or with a health condition if they are in possession of a current blue badge in their name or a signed medical exemption certificate.

Players who do not automatically qualify will be considered on an individual basis and in the first instance should contact Richard in the pro shop who will advise in the strictest confidence.

 

Winter buggy/ trolley course layout

In order of holes played 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 17,18.

The winter buggy/ trolley course layout has been introduced to allow as many golfers as possible the opportunity to play in adverse weather conditions. The layout is generally drier than other areas of the course but when playing please follow these additional rules:

  • Players must report to the pro shop before tee off, staff will advise on how busy the course is and any further details specific for that day.
  • During busy periods (ie weekend morning) players will not require a booked tee time. However, they must tee off starting on the 5th hole and during the first 45 minutes of that days booking times, this will allow you enough time to stay ahead of other golfers playing all open holes.
  • When using buggy’s, single seat ride-on’s and trolleys please stick to the rough where possible and away from closely mowed areas.

 

Carrying clubs

When winter rules are in operation the club hopes as many members as possible will carry their clubs if able to do so. Carrying clubs protects the course and can help keep it open for longer during sustained periods of bad weather.  The traffic light system is in place to address Health & Safety issues and to limit damage to the course during adverse weather conditions as well as complying with the Equality Act 2010.

 

Breach of Rule

If any player fails to comply with these rules, the club may ask them to leave the course and may prohibit the player from using buggies or trolleys on the course in future.

Excellent place for a seasoned golfer such as myself and also has a fantastic beginners course. Really beautiful surroundings make it a great place to visit.
