5 G (Play Fast Policy) Pace of Play Policy (Rule 5)
For some time Members and the Committee have been concerned about the pace of both Competitive and General play at the Club which is detracting from Members overall enjoyment of playing golf at DHGC. The responsibility falls on both the Club and Players to make sure a sensible pace of play is achieved.
Play has been monitored and a number of steps have been agreed to improve playing times in both Competitive and General play. The Committee has conducted a study into the amount of time a 4-ball should take and conclude the following:
Club Policy: Based on R&A and England Golf guidelines.
Whilst the Rules of Golf provide generic guidance on the conduct of golfers, they cannot provide guidance with respect to the specific requirements of individual clubs. To this end, the Handicap Committee have developed a Druids Heath Code of Conduct policy which provides Druids Heath specific guidance on conduct, and also presents the sanctions that are in place for failure to comply.
The policy is available on the club website here and is posted on the various notice boards around the club house. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with it.
Druids Heath Golf Club is delighted to be an approved Club for the R&A "Women in Golf" Charter. In line with R&A and England Golf principles we are committed to attracting more women and girls to the sport and encouraging them to participate at every level. We aim to create a friendly environment in which to enjoy the sport. Working together we want to encourage gender balance across the golf spectrum. We want to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women in golf.
The club has a small number of EZGO buggies available for hire from the club professional. These can be booked in advance and are available on a first come first served basis
We are also pleased to be able to accommodate members, visitors and guests who need to use their own ride-on buggy provided they comply with the club policy, safety instructions and are able to safely use the buggy.
If you would like to use a buggy for your round of golf, please contact the club professional in the first instance and ensure you are familiar with the club's buggy policy.
Druids Heath Golf Club Ltd is committed to the principles of equality and diversity throughout its workforce, throughout its membership base and customers.
Druids Heath Golf Club Ltd considers that everyone should play their part in making golf inclusive and aims to ensure that all people, irrespective of their background, ability or Protected Characteristics, have a genuine and equal opportunity to work at the club, become a member or participate in club life.
