Course Care

Bunkers

Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints, and then leave the rake with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.

Bunker Rake Policy

Always leave rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle parallel to the line of flight of the hole being played with the handle pointing back towards the tee. Rakes should be placed as far from the edge as possible.

Repairing Ball Marks

1.Always start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer.
2.Use repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of the mark. Do not lift the soil upwards.
3.Lightly tap down with putter.

Repairing Divots

Repair all divots, along with all pitch marks on putting surfaces.

Damage to The Greens

Flagsticks, Bags etc.
Players and caddies should ensure they cause no damage to the green when putting down bags or the flagstick. They should not stand too close to the hole when handling the flagstick or removing the ball. Replace the flagstick on leaving the green.
