With the current bunker renovation programme now well under way members will be seeing the result of the works first hand.
Unfortunately the Green’s team are experiencing a supplier delay in obtaining the new sand and consequently some bunkers are currently not sanded.
Such bunkers will be marked compulsory GUR. In the event a player hits a shot into these the Match Committee has implemented the below local rule.
This will be in play from Saturday 27th June 2020.
Greenside Bunkers Under Renovation on Hole 5,6,8,9
If it is known or virtually certain a player’s ball has entered and then exited a bunker under renovation a player may without penalty.
- Drop the original or another ball within one Club length no nearer to the hole from where the original ball first crossed the margin of the bunker.
