COURSE INFORMATION
A complete list of all GUR areas is on noticeboards around the Clubhouse.
If your ball is on the fairway AND in an aeration hole, you may lift and place within a scorecard length not nearer the hole.

> From this Friday 30th March, mats on fairways will not be needed.
> Temporary greens – when not in use, you must either take a free drop OFF the temporary green at the nearest point of relief OR use a putter if you choose to play the ball as it lies.
> Practice area – now hit from mats only over the winter period.
> PREFERRED LIES on fairways, now in play – notices will be displayed on first tee.
> Recent rain means softer greens – PLEASE REPAIR ALL PITCH MARKS – you may not make pitch marks in summer but everyone is at present!
> FOG – there is a chance of foggy days particularly at this time of year. You are reminded that our Club Rule states that - if the flag on the first green is not visible from the first tee, then the course will be closed.
> BUGGIES on FROSTY DAYS – buggies will not be allowed when there is a frost as they cause too much damage to the fairways and green surrounds.
