Golfing Etiquette

This is all pretty standard for golfers but if you are in any doubt we would ask that you take a few minutes to check the following useful sites for advice, or via our Guidelines document.    As we are a Members Club and the course is on Common Land within the Dartmoor National park we ask that you pay particular attention to the following:

  • We play on Common Land which is open to the public. We strive to live in harmony with The Commoners, the farmers who own the animals that graze on the course, walkers and those exercising their dogs. We ask for your understanding and assistance with this.
  • The use of Electric Trolley, private golf buggies and pull trolleys may occassional be banned from the course. There will be a notice on the White Course Bookings board at the rear of the Club. The PGA Pro will also be able to advise.
  • We ask that players avoid playing slowly and keep up with the playing group ahead. If they lose ground to the players ahead and cause the following group to wait, then they must invite the follwing group to play through.
  • 2 Balls and those in competitons have priority over 3 and 4 balls; 3 balls have priority over 4 balls. Single players are of course most welcome but they have no standing and should invite though all groups.
  • Trolley routes and pitch marks. We ask that you obey any signage directing you around the course, and ask you to repair pitch marks.
  • Further tips on course etiquette can be found at this R&A link.
