The information below has been collated using the regulations and guidance from the R&A and PGA of Great Britain and Ireland. These rules have been put in place to keep everyone safe during these unprecedented times.  A zero-tolerance approach will be taken to ensure everyone feels comfortable and able to enjoy the golf course during this time.

Until told otherwise, the only form of play will be casual golf and no qualifying scores will be permitted until Scottish Golf advises otherwise. You will hear more from the ladies and gents committee’s shortly about the changes to future competitions and the way they will be administered.

Arrival and waiting to play:

  • The clubhouse will be closed. Access to the toilet facilities will be permitted using a one in one out system to comply with social distancing.

Teeing Areas:

  • Red and white tees will only be in operation. 


  • Golfers are reminded to stay at least two metres apart when walking to the ball, searching for the ball, and playing shots. 


  •  With no rakes on the course, golfers are reminded to make their best efforts to smooth the sand using a club or their feet.
