  • No Trainers
  • No Collarless (non golfing) T – Shirts

On Course Etiquette

Scraptoft Golf Club is an advocate of Ready Golf, all players, members, guests & visitors are expected to follow the guidelines set out by the R&A which include:

  • Hitting a tee shot or a fairway shot, if the person with the honour is not ready to play.
  • Shorter hitters to play first from the tee or fairway if longer hitter has to wait.
  • Playing your shot first before helping another player look for their ball.
  • Putting: Be ready to putt when it is your turn, putt out rather than marking ball. Give consideration to others putting line.
  • Leave trolley/buggies at your exit from the green.
  • Mark scores after you leave the green or while you are waiting to play on the next tee.
  • Proceed with Health & Safety in mind at all times.
Lost Ball

If a player believes their ball may be lost outside a penalty area or out of bounds, they should play a provisional ball.

Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not be easily found. Having allowed the group behind to play through, they should not continue play until that group has passed and is out of range.

Care on the Course

We kindly request all players take the time to:

  • Replace all divots.
  • Repair all pitch marks.
  • Rake the bunker, the rake MUST be left in the bunker.
  • No practice swings allowed on the tees.
  • Keep to all paths and walkways.

Monday 23/03/2020 Further to the 8.30pm announcement made by the Prime Minister this evening and the unprecedented situation with regard to COVID-19, we regret to confirm the golf course and all practice facilities are now closed with immediate effect. This will only be reviewed in line with Government guidelines, in three weeks time as outlined tonight. As you will appreciate we have endeavoured to keep Scraptoft Golf Club open for members & guests to enjoy but sadly this is no longer possible under the recent directive. We sincerely hope you and your family stay safe during these unprecedented times.
