ON ARRIVAL Please register at the Club Shop. Green Fees must be paid before commencing play. We strongly advise that the organiser of the group collects payment from members of their party so that the booking-in procedure on arrival is simplified. No visitor will be allowed on the course without payment of green fees unless by prior arrangement with the Club Manager.
STARTING TIMES Tee times must be booked in advance and the Club reserves the right to adjust starting times if visitors are late or numbers change. Male Visitors must play from the yellow tees unless otherwise arranged with the Club Manager. The Men’s Medal Tees (white markers) are reserved for Club Competitions only.
CONFIRMATION It is the responsibility of the organiser to confirm the number in the group with the Club Manager at least seven days prior to the day.
CANCELLATION POLICY In the unlikely event that circumstances prevent a booked visit from going ahead we will use our utmost endeavours to offer alternative arrangements which are acceptable to the visiting Society. We shall offer at least 3 alternative dates. In the event none of the dates we are able to offer are acceptable the arrangement will become null and void. In this circumstance we, or any service we use to handle bookings, will either hold the deposit in credit against a future booking or refund the deposit.
DEPOSITS A non-refundable deposit of £10 per head is required before a booking can be considered firm. In the event of the number attending being less than number originally booked, the fees payable for those that do arrive are the total fee agreed per head less the deposit per head paid. Deposits relating to no shows will not be refunded.
LICENSING ACT 2003 To comply with our license under the Licensing Act 2003 the names of all visitors must be submitted to the club at least two clear days prior to the visit to enable the consumption or purchase of alcohol during the visit.
SLOW PLAY Most of our visiting parties play in fourball stableford format (we do not allow fourball medal). We recommend that the organisers choose a format that encourages continuous play, as pace of play will be monitored. When calculating tee times, eight minutes should be allowed for three balls and ten minutes for four balls.
