Preventing Unnecessary Damage

Players should avoid causing damage to the course. For example:

  • Do not remove divots when taking practice swings or by hitting the club into the ground, whether in anger or for any other reason. Ensure you do not damage the putting green when putting down bags or the flagstick.
  • Avoid standing too close to the hole and take care when handling the flagstick and when removing a ball from the hole. Do not use the clubhead to remove a ball from the hole.
  • Do not lean on a club on the putting green.
  • If the flagstick has been removed, replace it in the centre of the hole.
  • Follow any local notices regulating the movement of golf carts.
