COURSE INFORMATION
A complete list of all GUR areas is on noticeboards around the Clubhouse.
- 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 - hit from mats only.
- PREFERRED LIES on fairways, now in play – notices will be displayed on the 1st 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 1st green is not visible from the 1st 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.
