Diary Rule Change
Club Diary, Course Rules. Page 84, Rule 6.
Single players have no standing and must give way to any other form of match. A single player must not have 2 balls in play.
Effective from today, will be replaced by the following:
Priority on the course is determined by a groups 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. A single player must not have more than 2 balls in play.
It's is a groups responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If it loses a clear hole and it is delaying the group behind, it MUST invite the group behind to play through, irrespective of the number of players in that group.
Where a group has not lost a clear hole, but it is apparent that the group behind can play faster, it MUST invite the faster moving group to play through.
This aligns the club with 2008 R&A rulings on Course Ettiquette.
