Course Etiquette

Golf is a game which requires players to play by the rules and show consideration for other players and the course. Doncaster Golf Club is proud to uphold this principle and in an effort to assist visitors we ask that you take note of the following guidance:

SPIRIT OF THE GAME
• Players should conduct themselves in a disciplined and sportsmanlike manner, showing consideration for others.
• Please do not display anger or frustration in an aggressive manner such as throwing clubs or using bad language etc.
• Please switch off all mobile phones or other electronic communication devices.

SAFETY
• Please do not play until the players in front are out of range.
• Please shout ‘FORE’ if a ball is in danger of hitting someone. Also, please report any “near misses” to the Pro after completing your round.

PACE OF PLAY
• Please keep up a good pace. If the group in front is more than a hole ahead and the group behind is waiting to play, please allow them to play through.
• If a ball is lost and the group behind are waiting to play, please invite them through immediately.

CARE OF THE COURSE
• Please repair divots in all areas of the course including the rough and semi rough.
• Please repair divots on the tees with soil from the boxes on the tees.
• Please rake bunkers thoroughly and leave them how you would expect to find them.
• Please repair your own pitch mark before leaving the green.
• Please do not take trolleys or buggies within 10 metres of the green and NEVER between the green and greenside bunkers.

Insurance Cover

Visiting golfers should note that Doncaster Golf Club’s insurance arrangements do not cover individual golfers for any personal liabilities they may incur due to their actions when playing at the Club. Golfers are therefore advised to ensure they have appropriate insurance cover in place. Doncaster Golf Club will accept no responsibility for the actions of visiting golfers.

Be Careful Whilst at the Club

Members and Visitors who are regular golfers are well aware of the dangers that can exist on a golf course and in the associated buildings and grounds. Those who are bringing guests who are less experienced golfers should guide them around the course to ensure that they are aware of any potential hazards.

Please take appropriate care to avoid tripping hazards, slippery surfaces in winter and during wet weather at other times of the year.

The Etiquette page of this section gives more detailed guidance. However, please pay particular attention to the advice about shouting ‘Fore’. Be aware of what is going on around you and ensure that you act accordingly.

Also please record all incidents of 'near misses' or actual incidents whereby fellow golfers or greens staff or pedestrians are hit or nearly hit by a golf ball (or club). No names need to be mentioned as this is to aid health and safety planning and not to apportion blame. The person striking the ball can enter a record as can those who may have been on the receiving end of the shot! The record books are next to the handicap record in the gents locker room and next to the files in the ladies locker room.

A small amount of attention to the above issues will ensure that you enjoy your visit and golf to the maximum
