Competitions

As a member of you are able to participate in a range of competitions. To do this you will need to have an Golf Australian Handicap.  You will find detail inform about the Australian Handicap system at Golf Australia .

To assist the starters you should arrive a minimum of fifteen (15) minutes before your scheduled tee time to allow time for the “formalities” required prior to tee off.

“Shotgun” starts require that you arrive thirty (30) minutes before the starting time to allow the starters time to organise the field, make announcements and give time for players to walk to their respective tees.

Competition fees are to be paid prior to the playing in a competition. For “rolling start” events a box for payment will be located in the clubhouse on the day of competition. With “shotgun” starts a member of the match committee will be collecting payment on the day of play.

Payment can be made in the bar for nine (9) hole events – if you wish to start before the bar opens there will be an entry sheet located in the green fee room and payment can be lodged in the green fee box.

 Golf Etiquette

Members are asked to pay particular attention to the following paragraphs

  • No-one should move, talk or stand close or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.
  • A player who has the honour should be allowed to play before his opponent or fellow competitor tees his ball.
  • No player should play until the party in front is out of range.
  • In the interest of all, players should play without delay.
  • A player who has incurred a penalty should intimate the fact to his opponent or marker as soon as possible.
  • Players, while searching for a ball, should allow other matches coming up to pass them: they should signal to the players following them to pass and having given the signal should discontinue to play until those players have passed and are out of range.
  • After having played out of bunker, a player should carefully fill up all holes made by him.
  • A player should ensure that any turf cut or displaced by him is replaced at once and pressed down, and that on the putting green any pitch mark made by him should is repaired.
  • Players should ensure that, on the putting green, no damage is done to the putting surface, and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to the hole or in taking out or replacing the flagstick. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.
  • When the result of a hole has been determined, players should immediately leave the putting green and should not re-try their putts or practice putting.
  • In order to keep the game moving at an enjoyable tempo for all, it is imperative that at the completion of the playing of the hole the player who has the honour at the next tee, MUST immediately walk to the tee and tee his ball up, leaving the replacement of the flagstick to one of the other members of the four. By far the greatest amount of time lost in a round is between green and tee.
  • Practice with more than (2) two balls MUST be confined to practice areas.
  • It is the duty and responsibility of the lowest handicapped player in the match to see his fellow competitors replace all divots, smooth out all footmarks in bunkers and observe the etiquette and rules of the game.
