Each player shall furnish his own equipment, normally one club and two Balls
Play on a course must be approved by the owner of the hole
Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get the club into the hole and keep the balls out of the hole.
For most effective play, the club should have a firm shaft. Course Owners are permitted to check shaft stiffness before play begins.
Course Owners reserve the right to restrict club length to avoid damage to the hole.
The object of 'playing the hole' is to take as many strokes as necessary until the course owner is satisfied that the play is complete. NOTE: Failure to do so may result in denial of permission to play the course again.
It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately. Upon arrival at the course, the experienced player will normally take time to admire the entire course before play begins and possibly practise some bunker play, putting and a careful study of the contours of the course before playing a full round.
CAUTION: Players should not mention other courses they have played or are currently playing during their round. (Upset course owners have been known to severely damage players clubs for this reason)
Players are advised to bring proper rain gear for their own protection.
Players should ensure that their match has been properly scheduled particularly when a new course is being played for the first time (See item 7) Special Note: Previous players of certain courses become irate if they discover someone playing on what they consider to be their 'Private Course'
Players are advised to obtain owners permission to start on the back nine.
The course owner is responsible for the manicuring and pruning of the course. Particular attention should be paid to the putting surfaces and bunkers in that they are well prepared for the days play.
As opposed to normal golf, slow play is encouraged. However, players should be prepared to proceed at a quicker pace at the owners request.
It is considered outstanding play to have completed more than one round.
The course owner shall be the judge of whether or not the course has been played well enough to be invited back.
