Town Meadow Golf Club Playing Rules

 

All golf played at TMGC is to be in accordance with the current Rules of Golf published by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, as amplified by the local rules below:-

 

1. RESTRICTIONS TO PLAY:

a. Golf may not be played when the Town Meadow has been allocated to other sections of the Overton Recreation Centre. Unless specifically authorised, no golf may take place after 6pm Monday to Thursday during school term times.

b. On competition days, members taking part in the competition have priority over all other players.

 

2. GUESTS:

a. Members may introduce up to three guests at a time. Members are responsible for the behaviour and dress of their guests and for collecting and submitting the appropriate green fees.

 

3. BAG TAGS:

a. A member must display an TMGC bag tag, with current subscription sticker affixed, at all times while playing golf.

 

4. DRESS:

a. Members and guests are required to dress so as not to offend fellow members; i.e. wear shirts with sleeves and collars and appropriate shoes with socks, no sandals or bare feet.

 

5. BOUNDARIES:

a. Members and guests must not trespass beyond the boundary of the course.

 

6. DOGS:

a. Dogs are not permitted on the course at any time.

 

7. EQUIPMENT:

a. The sharing of golf clubs is not permitted, except by junior members learning the game.

 

8. EVICTION:

a. Any member of the Committee has the right to ask any member, or their guest, not conforming to these Playing Rules, to leave the course.

9. CONSIDERATION FOR OTHER PLAYERS:

a. The player who has the honour should be allowed to play before his/her opponent or fellow competitor tees his/her ball

b. No player should play until all the players in front are out of range.

c. No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.

d. In the interests of all, players should play without delay.

e. Players searching for a ball must signal the players behind them to pass, as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not be easily found: they should not search for five minutes before doing so. They must not continue play until the players following them have passé and are out of range.

f. When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green; cards should be marked at the following tee.

 

10. CARE OF THE COURSE:

a. Through the green, a player should ensure that any turf cut or displaced by him/her is replaced at once and pressed down and that any damage to the putting green made by a ball is carefully repaired. Damage to the putting green caused by golf spikes should be repaired on completion of the hole.

b. No club other than a putter is to be used to play a ball on a green or temporary green.

c. Practice pitching, chipping and putting on the nine hole course is not allowed; a practice green is provided for these.

d. Players should ensure that, when putting down bags or the flagstick, no damage is done to the course and that the hole is not damaged by standing close to it, in handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before players leave the putting green. Players should not damage the putting green by leaning on their putters particularly when removing the ball from the hole. In taking practice swings, players should avoid causing damage to the course, particularly the tees, by removing divots.

 

11. SAFETY:

a. Players must be aware at all times as to where other players are on the course.

b. Players on the tee must allow players on the hole in front of them to be well clear of the green before teeing off.

c. Prior to playing a stroke or making a practice swing, the player must ensure that no-one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like which may be moved by the stroke or swing.

 

12. OUT OF BOUNDS.

a. Over any hedge or fence bounding the course.

  3. On any green where a previously cut hole interferes with the line of play, the ball may be moved to the left or right but not nearer the hole without penalty.
  4. Young trees clearly defined by stakes are Ground Under Repair (GUR). Where such trees impair the line of shot, the ball must be dropped not nearer the hole so as to remove the impediment, without penalty.
  5. Any ground being worked upon, whether so marked or not, is to be treated as GUR and the appropriate relief taken, without penalty.
