Club/Course Etiquette

A revised edition of the Club's Etiquette policy is being prepared. Details will be posted on the Club's web site and Notice Board(s) when available. In the interim, members are requested to refrain from any form of behaviour which is detrimental to the best interests of the Club.
Detrimental behaviour considered not to be in the best interests of the Club shall include:

  • failure to observe the Rules and Etiquette of the game
  • failure to observe rules and instructions introduced from time to time for the protection of the course, including those displayed on Notices or Notice Boards
  • behaving, either via actions or language, in a manner considered unacceptable by the Board of Directors. 

Local Rules

Local Rule, Track near 1st Green

24.2 Relief - Through the Green

If the ball lies through the green, the player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club-length of and not nearer the hole that the nearest point of relief.  The nearest point of relief must not be in a hazard or on a putting green.

DROPPING ZONE at Hole 18

IF YOUR BALL ROLLS OUT OF THE ZONE DO NOT PICK IT UP UNLESS IT HAS
ROLLED MORE THAN TWO CLUB LENGTHS FROM THE POINT IT FIRST STRUCK THE COURSE IN THE ZONE (NOT THE LINE OF THE ZONE).
The text in Italics is relevant to Howley Hall.  The Underlined text is superfluous to
our zones.

Simplification;
When dropping in a zone the ball has to strike that zone, and may
roll out of it, and be played, as long as it has not rolled more
than two club lengths from where it struck the course, even if it
has rolled out of the zone to a point nearer the hole.

a) The player does not have to stand within the dropping zone when
dropping the ball.
b) The dropped ball must first strike a part of the course within the
dropping zone.
c) The dropping zone is defined by a line and that line is within the
dropping zone.
d) The dropped ball does not have to come to rest within the dropping
zone.
e) The dropped ball must be re-dropped if it rolls and comes to rest in a
position
covered by Rule 20-2c(i-vi):

(i) rolls and comes to rest in a hazard;
(ii) rolls out of and comes to rest outside a hazard;
(iii) rolls onto and comes to rest on a putting green;
(iv) rolls and comes to rest out of bounds;
(v) rolls to and comes to rest in a position where there is interference
by the condition from which relief was taken under Rule 24-2b
(immovable obstruction), Rule 25-1 (abnormal ground condition),
Rule 25-3 (wrong putting green) or a Local Rule (Rule 33-8a), or
rolls back into the pitch-mark from which it was lifted under Rule
25-2 (embedded ball);

(vi) rolls and comes to rest more than two club-lengths from where it
first struck a part of the course.
f) The dropped ball may roll nearer the hole than the spot where it first
struck a part of the course, provided it comes to rest within two clublengths
of that spot and not into any of the positions covered by e)

g) Subject to the provisions of e) and f), the ball may roll and come to
rest nearer the hole than:
its original position or estimated position (see Rule 20-2b);
the nearest point of relief or maximum available relief (Rule 24-2,
25-1, or 25-3; or
the point where the original ball last crossed the margin of the
water hazard or lateral water hazard (Rule 26-1)
