Niddry Castle Golf Club - Winchburgh

        On the Course

  • Play should be continuous and without delay but do not play until the match in front is out of range.
  • Players searching for a ball should signal the game behind to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not be easily found
  • Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill up all holes
  • All divots must be carefully replaced and any damage to the putting green made by a ball or the player should be carefully repaired
  • When play at a hole is complete, players should immediately leave the green
  • Priority on the course is determined by a group's pace of play. Any group playing a whole round is entitled to pass a group playing a shorter round. The term 'group' includes a single player. 
  • It is a group's responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If it loses a clear hole and it is delaying the group behind, it should invite the group behind to play through, irrespective of the number of players in that group
  • Competition games should be allowed to play through
