COMMUNICATION

It would help the pro shop if swindle organisers confirm the starting points being used on the day, so they can direct others appropriately. Players wishing to play at time when there are large playing groups should speak to the pro shop who will advise them of the best place to start.

If a 3 or 4 ball has a 2-ball game behind it (as will happen on Saturdays) PLEASE stand aside and let them through. To keep the flow of play moving please consider the game behind you at all times.

Morning groups playing through the 15th between 11.45 and 12.30 have priority and alternation with those starting on the 15th does not apply.

Society & match bookings may have reserved tee times on the same days as our large playing groups. On these days the office / pro shop will liaise with the swindle/group organiser. Members are requested to look at the website diary, starting noticeboard or speak to the pro shop to see if any of these arrangements change on the day.
