  1. I would like to congratulate both Matt and Con on their victory in the Match Play and wish not only them the best in the final of the match play but also Peter and Tony and may the best team on the day win. Both Paul Rodgers and myself gave it our best shot but Matts long drives and Cons superb touch around the green were just too good for us. It was a pleasure playing with these gentlemen. Thanks guys for a great morning, and thanks to my playing partner Paul as well.. Good luck to Tony and Johnny as well in the single match play final..

  2. Playing the 18th today my ball ended up against the northern side of the compound. In the past I would take swing relief (rule24). Today it has GUR lines around it,which is a definite advantage. The GUR continues along the western wall. Question is-has the drop zone become obsolete ?

    1. Thanks Tony for pointing out this important point.
      Those players taking advantage of the GUR in this area and along the western boundary of the compound must use the drop zone. This is clearly pointed out in the ‘local rules’ on the noticeboard near the golf shop. The alternative is to play the ball as it lies.

  3. Thanks for clearing that up Dave. I didn’t know that if a ball came to rest at the base of the north facing fence it could be taken up to the drop zone beside the green. It is not relief,it’s a get out of jail card in my opinion.

    1. Only that part near the tree that is marked. The rest of the fence is an immovable obstruction where you get swing relief only. Pretty hard shot from the drop zone! The problem before we marked it was where did the ditch start? At least now you know when you are in that GUR area.
      Thanks for your enquiry.

      1. One often overlooked option you can take if you find yourself up against that fence is rule 28, unplayable lie and replay you last stroke under penalty of stroke and distance. That can be a better bet given the vagaries of that particular green in my opinion
