Tee Times – groups of 3 players, starting times to be booked in advance (as now)

Tees – Men play off yellow tees. Ladies play off red tees.

Score cards – The club score cards will be used.

The gross score on each hole is all that should be recorded.

Each player’s card must be marked by one of their playing partners and signed by both the marker and the player.

Completed signed score cards should be placed in the box in the club.

The FFG system will be used to apply each player’s competition handicap (individual handicap x slope adjustment) and thus calculate their result.
