Course rotation – 22/05/2021
From Monday 31st May 2021, the designated 18-hole course will be Naemoor – Cowden. This means of course that the Arndean Course will be the ‘casual’ nine. The recent low temperatures have delayed the recovery of the greens after their spring coring but we are confident that they will be in good shape by the 31st.
For the benefit of our newer members and as a reminder to everyone:
Cowden Course Local Rule – Woodland Areas
Local rules implemented on completion of the Woodland Project in 2019/20 in areas where trees were previously – Red Penalty Area.
The areas where trees have been removed have been designated as ‘Red Penalty Areas’ (Rule 17) and are marked by Red posts.
Relief is optional and a player may play from the Penalty Area if they choose.
If a player opts to take relief, this may be taken with one penalty stroke as follows under Rule 17.1-d:
(1) Stroke-and-Distance Relief. (Rule 14.6)
(2) Back-On-the-Line Relief. (Rule 14.3)
(3) Lateral Relief (Only for Red Penalty Area)
