Course Etiquette

The greens staff here at Rickmansworth take great pride in the maintenance of the course and want golfers to enjoy their game.

There are a few golden rules to follow, and by doing so you will be noticed as a knowledgeable golfer:

  • Do not take trolleys onto greens, green approaches, into bunkers and onto teeing grounds
  • Replace all divots you make
  • Use a rake to smooth over footprints in bunkers after you have played your shot
  • Repair all pitch marks on greens – always try to repair yours and one other
  • When attending the flag stick, take care to not to damage the hole
  • Leave your golf bag or trolley near to the exit of the green
  • Try to keep up with the group ahead of you and not just in front of the one behind. Please wave faster groups through.
  • Be aware of the 5 minute rule when looking for a ball. Play a provisional ball if your first ball maybe difficult to find.
