  • Playing Tee Shot

    You may change your ball before playing your tee shot, but it is good practice to advise a player in your group if you are changing your ball.

    Play your tee shot from between, and not in front of, the tee-markers. You may play your tee shot from up to two club-lengths behind the front line of the tee-markers.

    QuickGuideTeeShot

    If you play your tee shot from outside this area:

    • in match play there is no penalty, but your opponent may require you to replay your stroke provided he does so immediately;
    • in stroke play you incur a two-stroke penalty, the stroke itself does not count and you must play a ball from within the correct area.

  • R&I - General Points

    The game of golf should be played in the correct spirit and in accordance with the Etiquette Section in the Rules of Golf. In particular:

    • show consideration to other players,
    • play at a good pace and be ready to invite faster moving groups to play through, and
    • take care of the course by smoothing bunkers, replacing divots and repairing ball marks on the greens.

    Before starting your round you are advised to:

    • read the Local Rules on the score card and the notice board
    • put an identification mark on your ball; many golfers play the same brand of ball and if you can’t identify your ball, it is considered lost (Rules 12-2 and 27-1)
    • count your clubs; you are allowed a maximum of 14 clubs (Rule 4-4).

    During the round:

    • don’t ask for “advice” from anyone except your caddie, your partner (i.e. a player on your side) or your partner’s caddie;
