Text Box: Probus Golf Society Rules

As amended March 2016
The normal R & A Rules of Golf apply.


Rule 1 Handicaps

Probus members will play off their club handicap less two strokes unless they already have a Probus Golf Society Handicap.

b) 		Handicaps will be adjusted as follows:-
	Any player scoring less than 10 points for the 9 holes played will receive two strokes on their handicap automatically.
	A player scoring 19 or 20 points will be cut two strokes.
	A player scoring 21 points or more will be cut four  strokes.
	A player with a Probus GS handicap of 4 or less will be cut just one stroke.


c) 		Guests will play off a maximum handicap of 18 or their club handicap less two strokes if lower.  Or their Probus Golf Society handicap.  Guests handicaps will be adjusted the same as for Probus members.


Rule 2  Gimmies

			No gimmies are allowed under any circumstances, however a player must pick-up if he is certain he can not score on the 			hole.

Rule 3  Order of play
			The captain will determine the order of play.

			No firm rules were agreed but as a principle a member’s guest should play with that member.

Rule 4  Register of Guests

Any Probus Member may invite a guest to play in the Probus Golf Society but they must be present, subject to c), and are responsible for that Guest and must ensure they are registered with the Probus Golf Society.
All Guests must appear on the register of Guests showing which member invited them and is responsible for them.
Only one guest will be permitted to play with a member at any one time but more than one guest may be registered with a member.  Another member may take responsibility for a member’s guest but they will then count as their guest.

Rule 5 Preferred Lies 
 
		Players may take Winter Rules relief at all times.  This means, on the fairway or putting green fringe, balls may be marked, lifted 		and wiped and placed within 15cm, no nearer the hole.

Rule 6  Relief

		If a ball enters a river or water marked by RED stakes or comes to rest in a place where the player declares the ball unplayable, relief under penalty of one stroke is allowed under the normal rules of golf. i.e.  The ball must be dropped at the nearest point of relief, within two club lengths.  Note:- You can not choose to drop where there is a gap in the trees, this must be within reason the spot that the ball entered the hazard or was lost.    


Rule 7   Approval by the Probus Club

		Any rules agreed by members of the Golf Society need to be approved by the Probus Club.
		
Rule 8  La Noria Golf Club—Hole 4

		A player may elect to play from the Red tee boxes upon an addition of one stroke to their score.
