Course Etiquette

Course Etiquette

All members and guests to the Park Golf Club are required to conform to the rules of the R&A, the Park Golf Club and rules/conditions laid down by the Sefton’s Southport Municipal Golf Course. In particular abide by the ‘Conditions of Play’ as displayed outside the Pro-Shop.

A round of golf for a ‘four ball’ should not take in excess of 3 hours 45 minutes. You MUST keep up with the four-ball in-front and, if applicable, call through players behind who are being delayed by you where you have either LOST a HOLE or NONE are IN-FRONT of you.

Golf Buggies and Trolleys are to be used on the course in a way that does not damage any part of the course. In the event of muddy or wet ground, buggies and trolleys MUST keep to the part of the course that will not be affected: creating ruts in the ground is not permitted. Trolleys and golf buggies are available for hire from the Pro-Shop subject to availability.

All marks and footprints must be raked on leaving a bunker.

All divots are to be replaced and pitch marks repaired.

The use of a mobile phone is restricted to the car park only (except in an emergency).

Dogs are NOT allowed on the course at any time.
