The maximum handicap for all Men’s Saturday, Major, & Principal events is 36.

Competitors must register for the competition prior to starting by paying the appropriate entry fee. Competitors must ensure that the correct Name, Handicap & Date has been printed on their card.

Players are advised to check the notice board for changes to temporary local rules before play. The temporary local rules are located outside the Golfshop. It is each player’s responsibility to know the Rules of Golf.

No player will be entered in an 18 hole competition after 1.30pm unless approved by the Match Committee or Golf Shop staff.

Exception: During Daylight Savings Only, for Thursday Men’s Competition, players can enter the competition after 1.30pm as long as their card is returned no later than 6.30pm.

Competition Golf

Introduction

Keep Pace is an initiative to ensure competition rounds are played in an appropriate duration to make golf more enjoyable for everyone, by:

✔️ Ensuring players Keep Pace with the group ahead;
✔️ Establishing 4 hours 30 minutes as the Target Time for a 4-player group to complete an 18 hole competition round.
✔️ Introducing, educating and enforcing Ready Golf standards;
✔️ Monitoring pace of play and Enforcing Rule 6-7.

Target Time – 4 Hours 30 minutes

It is expected that all competition rounds should be completed within the above times.
A significant responsibility lies with early groups to ensure they ‘lead’ the field at a suitable pace to achieve the Target Time. From time to time circumstances may negatively influence the actual time taken; yet all efforts should be made to meet the Target Time of 4 hours 30 minutes.

Target Interval – 8 Minutes

The starting interval time between groups is typically eight (8) minutes.

It is expected that all groups will maintain an interval time of eight (8) minutes with the group ahead throughout the round. From time to time circumstances (e.g. Par 3 holes) may cause the interval time to exceed eight minutes; yet all efforts should be made to catch up with the group in front.

Exception: when the group had a vacant time on the timesheet before they commenced play.

Follow these timing checkpoints during your round:

✔️ Complete the first 6 holes in 1 hour 30 minutes
✔️ Complete the front 9 holes in 2 hours 15 minutes
✔️ Complete the first 15 holes in 3 hours 45 minutes
✔️ Complete the 18 holes in 4 hours 30 minutes

Ready Golf

The aim of this section is to promote an enjoyable game of golf within a reasonable time frame for all players. The objective for all players is to maintain their place in the field and complete 18 holes within 4 hours 30 minutes. Note that Ready Golf does not apply in Match play.

On the Tee

✔️ There is no honour. The first player to each tee who is READY hits off. If waiting on the group in front, shorter hitters should tee off first.

On the Fairway

✔️ The first player READY plays their shot, regardless of distance to the green, as long as it is safe to do so. If possible, play your shot before helping another player look for a lost ball.

On the Green

✔️ The first player READY indicates to the other players that he/she will putt first, and holes out first as long as he/she is not interfering with another player’s line. A ball should rarely be marked more than once.
✔️ When the flag is removed from the hole, it should be laid on the green so that all players can prepare to putt.
✔️ Leave your bag/cart to the side of the green, NOT in front of the green.
✔️ As soon as you have putted out and if the next tee and driving area is clear, move to that tee and hit off. Put your putter in your bag once you reach the next tee.

Always

✔️ Plan your shot and select your club while approaching the ball.
✔️ When in doubt, hit a provisional ball.
✔️ Never record your scores on or near the green, wait until you reach the next tee.
✔️ A player who cannot score on a hole should pick up their ball and move immediately to the next tee, not wait on the green while the rest of the group putts out.
✔️ Check your position on the course with reference to your starting time. (see checkpoint times above.)

Dress Code - General Overview

Standard of dress and general appearance will, at all times, determine the privilege of all Members and visitors to use the facilities of the Club.

Fashions change from time to time, but the principle is that clothes must be neat, clean and commensurate with that expected of a semi-private golf club. The General Manager maintains the flexibility to alter these rules for special occasions.

The Committee will determine what is suitable attire and Committee Members, together with the General Manager, Club Professional and designated staff, will require compliance by a Member or visitor where appropriate.

Bar, Lounge Area, Dining Room and Terrace

Neat casual wear is required. Caps and hats are not to be worn inside. Smart casual wear is required for evening dining unless specified otherwise.

Dress on the Course

Men – Golf attire is expected to consist of tailored slacks or tailored walk shorts. Shirts must have a collar and be tucked in. Garments with any advertising slogans (except for discreet brand name and Club logos) are not permitted. The wearing of short socks is permitted provided they are white or white with a discreet logo.

Women – Tailored slacks, skirts, tailored-length pants or long shorts are required. Shirts must have a collar, abbreviated tops, leisure suits, track suits and jeans are not allowed.

Children – Children’s attire should at all times be neat and appropriate to their usage of the Club’s facilities.

Golf Shoes – Specifically designed golf shoes must be worn.

No Show Policy

The purpose of this policy is to establish an orderly and equitable process of dealing with No Show golfers.

A Member whose name is recorded on a competition starting sheet is required to report to the Pro Shop 15 minutes prior to tee time and be ready to tee off at that allotted time.

A Member who fails to cancel their booking within an hour of their tee time is deemed to be a “no-show”.

On the first occasion, the Member will be contacted to advise of the Club’s No Show Policy.

Subsequent offenses may result in a written warning letter notifying them that they risk having their online booking privileges suspended.

Responsibility for canceling a booking lies solely with the Member.

Bunkers

Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by the player, and then leave the rake with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.

1) Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.
2) Pull rake toward you as you exit the bunker.
3) If required rake other affected areas.
4) Do not pile sand at the edge of the bunker. Push back excess sand.
5) Always leave rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.

Repairing Ball-Marks

1) Always start at the back of the mark and pull forward with the repairer.
2) Use repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of the mark.
3) Do not lift the soil upwards.
4) Lightly tap down with putter.

Repairing Divots

1) Remove any loose turf from the affected area.
2) Knock in all sides of the edge of the divot with your club or your shoe.
3) Sand area. (Do not over fill divot)

Damage to green

Players should ensure that, when putting down bags, or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green, and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it in handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.

1) Don’t drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage.
2) Always lower the flagstick by club, or by hand.
3) Avoid damage to surrounds by placing the stick in the centre of the cup.

Motorised Golf Cart

Players using motorised golf carts MUST abide by the rules set down covering their use as follows:

  • There must not be more than two persons to each motorised cart.
  • Motorised carts must not be driven over tees and must not be driven within Fifteen (15) metres of any green or inside YELLOW lines marked on fairways indicating no carts.
  • Motorised carts MUST NOT be driven between bunkers and greens or on shoulders of greens.
  • IE: No short cuts!
  • When paths are provided near tees and greens, motorised carts MUST use them.
  • Players using motorised carts must maintain their normal place in the field and have no special priority.
  • All signs on the course relating to motorised cart use MUST be observed at all times.
  • Only two sets of clubs are permitted for each motorised cart.
  • Motorised carts are to be parked away from greens. Please obey parking notices.

THESE RULES WILL BE STRICTLY MONITORED AND ALL CART DRIVERS WHO DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE RULES WILL BE LIABLE TO HAVE PERMISSION TO USE CARTS REVOKED OR MEMBERSHIP SUSPENDED.

Green Staff

Greens staff have rights of way at all times!
In a situation where grounds staff are working on a hole to be played, players must wait to be acknowledged and waived through by the greens staff.

  • review rating 4  Wide open fairways immaculately presented which the ball sits up on like a cushion. Not a lot of trees which is forgiving, but some interesting hazards throughout the course. Overall the course felt extremely long, but there's good bounce and roll. The greens are like slate which takes some getting used to, but the ball runs true. The bunkers are like compacted builder's rubble which there's probably a trick to getting out of but I didn't figure it out, so best to steer clear of them where possible. Club house is large and very nice.

  • review rating 5  My Derrimut can be a nice and challenging course. It has up hill holes, down hill holes, water holes and wind coming in from every direction. It’s my local course and has a great driving range and mini golf. The people in the pro shop and the bar/cafe/restaurant are always friendly and welcoming. The view from the outdoor area back down the 18th is a great place to watch players and groups coming in. Highly recommended. They also have some great deals for memberships.
