As from Monday the 20th November the use of fairway mats is compulsory on all play from the fairway and semi rough.

If you don’t have a mat they can be collected from the golf shop Monday to Friday for a £5 deposit. There will be no mats available for collection over the weekend so anyone wishing to play during this time MUST collect a mat from the shop during opening hours.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation on this matter.
