As the clocks have now changed, please note there should be NO play before 08:00 each morning.

Temporary winter greens are GUR unless in play, remember you must take a FREE drop.

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!

ALWAYS keep up the pace of play and encourage members in your groups to play READY GOLF. SGC supports the R&A in READY GOLF and therefore the Club will NOT tolerate any SLOW play.
