Due to changes on the course the Club has had to change certain local rules. The current set of Club Local Rules have been posted on the Notice Boards.
The Rules on the back of scorecards are currently not valid and new scorecards with the updated rules will be printed once the current stock is depleted.
The following are the valid Local Rules
