New Local Rule

532

Local Rule 1A-3

 

Throughout the year the club have been in constant contact with Scottish Golf Limited regarding the course for medal play. As our course is still in the young stages of development, we are able to apply the following local rule:

1A-3 part C: Cleaning Ball Conditions, such as extreme wetness causing significant amounts of mud to adhere to the ball, may be such that permission to lift, clean and replace the ball would be appropriate. In these circumstances, the following Local Rule is recommended: On any closely-mown area throughout the course, a ball maybe lifted and cleaned without penalty. The ball must be replaced. Note: The position of the ball must be marked before it is lifted under this Local Rule: see Rule 20-1. PENALTY FOR BREACH OF LOCAL RULE: Match play “ Loss of hole; Stroke play “ Two shots.

This means that a player can clean mud from their ball on a closely mown area throughout the course. There must be a significant amount of mud on the ball to claim relief and permission must be sought from all playing partners before taking relief.

This local rule will be in effect from now until further notice.

Course Report

rowallan finals day-218

Course Report from Robert:

Usually by this time of year the main head scratchers are how to control dry patch and even up the greenkeepers tan. Not so this year!
The last time we had a dry week was early May and during August I recorded only three 24hour periods without rain.

It’s not all gloom and doom though. We’ve been over seeding some greens of late so the regular rainfall has helped with germination. To date we’ve completed 9 greens and will work around the fixture calendar until they are all done.
The process involves a double pencil tine prior to sowing the seed and following up with the drag brush and vibrating rollers. The weather conditions can have a significant effect on the success of this type of work but new grass is clearly visible on the greens treated at the beginning of the process.
The fairways received a fertiliser application in early August which has improved grass cover and colour although mowing routinely in these conditions is now the challenge.
Aeration events have been increased on all areas of the golf course to help keep surfaces as open as possible and with no sign of any change to the weather in the short term this will be the priority over the next few weeks.
Last Sunday morning it was surprising how the course had dried out given there had been no rain over the previous 2 days. Unfortunately, normal service has been resumed as we’re now over 20mm for the last 18 hours.
On that note, I’m off to buy some new wellies!
