I have today received a number of "Rules of Golf" books, which I'll put in the new clubhouse when we get it.  In the meantime, I'll carry them when I'm at the course so you can ask me for a copy. (please note that "away" players should get one from your home club).

The new rules have some SIGNIFICANT changes from the old ones, but although the new rule book is much better written it does not contain a summary of changes. The best place for this is section 2 of the "overview" document in https://www.rules.golf/#resourcesare. There are also various other pages to explain each new change.

For those of you with the technology you can dowload the app at https://www.randa.org/Apps

The new rules come into play on 1st January, so please make sure you know them.

Member's Use of Buggies - Update
Written by Scott Currie

As a few people seem to have been having issues with this, we have sought clarification as follows..


The current discount on buggy hire (50%) for Islay GC members with a medical certificate will be honoured for the remainder of this year. During this period, the Machrie will monitor the usage and make an informed decision for next year onwards. Note that other members get a 10% discount.

Regarding members personal buggies, the Machrie ask that going forward there not be any further members personal buggies.  They will continue to allow those that presently have buggies to use them; however, request that usage is limited to their personal use only, and that there is no sub hiring of said buggies.

One further point, once the Academy opens (the Par 3 course, putting green, driving range etc), there will be no extra charge this year (you will have to pay for balls on the range). In future years the annual fee will be adjusted to include these facilities.
