GREENS STAFF
Have priority at all times. Players should always alert greens staff nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them and wait for staff to move out of range.

PUBLIC FOOTPATHS
Paths run alongside and cross several holes on the course. Priority must be given to members of the public. Players must not play shots until footpaths in range are clear.

NEIGHBORING HOUSES

Two of our holes (numbers 6 & 7) run alongside neighbouring housing. It is important for all golfers (members and visitors alike) to understand that they must beware of any shots they hit to the right of both of these holes. If a shot is hit to the right players must shout warnings, even if they do not think the shot may enter our neighbours' gardens.

BUGGIES
To ensure the safety of all golf course users, buggy drivers are required to comply with the Club’s Buggy Policy and follow designated buggy routes at all times. Take particular care on slopes and around ditches and deep-sided bunkers
