Dave McGibbon Winners 2011

Congratulations to all the players and winners on the first major of the season. 

We had a great turn out with 66 players who struggled in to play in the miserable weather!. No hang on that was last year! The weather was great this year. I think the Dave McGibbon weather curse could finally be over.

The course was in fantastic condition - thanks Andy Copeland and his team. Listening to the players who played other courses in Inter Club Competitions recently our course is much…

Another Rules Situation - returning a ball back to a player on the putting green

This situation is one which crops up regularly in matches.  A player again playing in a match concedes an opponent their putt and then either rolls the player’s ball back to their opponent or knocks it back with their putter.  Is this a breach of rule 16-1d – testing the surface of the putting green?


This is a tricky situation, basically covered by Decisions 16-1d/1 and 16-1d/2,…

Situation 1 A player play a match, more precisely a 4BBB match, hits their tee shot out right on the 16th hole.  Suspecting it was out of bounds he…
