Provisional Ball

It is appropriate to hit a provisional ball if you believe
your ball may be hard to find after hitting a shot. The provisional ball is ‘in
play’ after you have spent 3 mins looking for your original ball.

may ask for it to be removed.

How are competition prizes calculated. Is there a template for this.

In general terms the golfing years prizes are a total of 50%

What is the policy and who is in charge of policing no shows and late pull

Not turning up for a competition tee time booked in your

No shows are the responsibility of the clubs competition secretary.

the competition is deemed as insufficient notice and a “no show”.

If you have a valid reason for not turning up or cancelling
your tee time after the close of pro shop on the preceding day your explanation
should be emailed to within 48 hours to avoid further sanctions.
