We will move to mats on the fairways from Monday 18th November 2013.
As in previous years the option is available if you wish to move the ball to the first cut of rough and play from there.
There are however two conditions around this, in particular when playing a match. Firstly you either play from the first cut throughout or you use mats throughout, you are not able to swap between the two during your round. Secondly, when moving your ball from the fairway to the first cut, you need to go to the closer cut – you are not able to move the ball to the further one if you believe this gives you an advantage. Please agree these conditions on the first tee before commencing your game.
Golf balls embedded in the rough, on either course, may be lifted, cleaned and dropped.
Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your winters golf
