PRACTICE GROUND RULES & PRACTICE ON THE COURSE
A few months ago I wrote in the newsletter about rules in place for the safe use of our practice ground and in relation to practice on the course. Sadly, I have recently been informed that practice is continuing to take place on the course, and that balls are still leaving the driving range through the trees and over the railway line.

I cannot emphasise enough how important it is that the rules of use for the driving range are followed, and everyone does all they can to prevent balls leaving our land. The rules of use are again listed below, and any members found not to be following the rules may be banned from using the driving range.

DRIVING RANGE USE
- No golf balls should be hit towards the railway line. If playing from the angled teeing area when you first reach the practice ground, only wedges and short irons should be hit from here. Longer clubs should be hit only from the teeing area that is parallel to our boundary.
No clubs should be used that result in a ball travelling further than 220 yards. For some of you this may be a 3 iron, others a driver, but it is imperative that no shots go further than 220 yards.

- All shots should be played towards the red and white stakes at the end of the range and should come to rest short of said stakes.

- Every effort should be made to keep the shots within the flat area of the range. Any balls going over the dunes to the right, or in to the trees on the left, could result in injury.
Please only play from designated teeing areas.

- Please return all baskets to the ball machine area when finished practicing.

- Please report any shots that have left the flat area of the range to the Office immediately.
Failure to comply with the above rules, may result in a ban from using the driving range.

PRACTICE ON THE COURSE
The links is for playing golf and NOT FOR PRACTICING. Please do not drop a second ball if unhappy with your first shot (unless a genuine provisional), and do not play more than one ball, even if you are playing as a single golfer.

Thank you all in advance for adhering to the rules laid out above, it would be a huge shame for a preventable incident to occur.

General Manager
