WINTER RULES


Members and visitors will wish to be aware that winter rules/preferred lies are now in place at Diss Golf Club until further notice. Under this rule, a ball lying on a closely mown area "through the green" may be lifted without penalty and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, he/she must place it on a spot within six inches of, and not nearer the hole, where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard and not on a putting green. Please note that a player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed. "Closely-mown area" means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less.  

"READY GOLF"


As members will know from the recent circular email issued by the Club Office, the General Committee has decided to introduce the R & A's new "Ready Golf" principles for all future Medal and Stableford competitions at our club (NB matchplay competitions are unaffected by this measure).

Taking care to employ common sense to ensure that playing out of turn does not endanger other players, "Ready Golf" for the purposes of our competitions includes the following measures:

-     Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is talking time to assess their options;
-     Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait;
-     Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being able to play;
-     Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball;
-     Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else's line;
-     Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker;
-    When a player's ball has gone over the back of the green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot;
-     Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off
