Important points to remember:

ALWAYS check the Club (PDF) diary on the Clubs website before planning your golf.

ALWAYS on arrival check for any course updates which can be found on the external “white board” or if in doubt ask the Pro Shop. Daily course updates can be due to weather or course maintenance.

ALWAYS remember to repair divot and pitch marks!
