Terms and Conditions

Ethic

SPGC Course is an open access pay and play Course where everyone has an equal opportunity to experience golf in a friendly and relaxed environment. We are committed to introducing children, young adults and the inexperienced to golf in a safe sporting environment in which they can have fun whilst learning and developing. To achieve our ethos, a tee-time booking allocation is operated.

Access

All persons wishing to play must have been granted a tee time before entering the course. Each individual is only allowed to reserve one tee time. 10 minutes prior to play all players must have book in at Reception and be beside the starting tee 5 minutes before their tee off time. Peak days are designated Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays. Off-peak days are Monday to Friday inclusive but excluding Public Holidays. “No shows” will be subject to our penalty guidelines

Health and Safety

Golf can be dangerous – be aware of fellow golfers, course staff, park visitors and slippery surfaces. All persons acknowledge that they enter a Course, its surrounds and premises at their own risk and consent to the risk of loss, damage or injury howsoever caused. All persons have a duty of care not to behave in such a way that others may be injured by their actions. You also have a duty to take care not to injure yourself. The use of golf shoe cleats (rubber spikes) can be risky on many surfaces. Common sense dictates and it is a player’s own responsibility to discontinue play when there is danger from lightning, fog, ice or hard ground. The Course Staff have priority at all times; when they are ready; they will stand aside and give a clear signal. Any player out on the course when Reception closes continues to play at their own risk acknowledging that there is no Staff on-site. In case of emergency, when contacting the Emergency Services advise them of our postcode which is printed on the scorecard.

Course Restrictions

We reserve the right to close at any time, for any reason. Restrictions can apply to all golfers – these could include full or partial Course closure, limited play to protect the course, temporary tees and greens and maintenance work. Bad weather through November to March is inevitable and playing restrictions are considered to be an acceptable part of playing winter golf. It is not an attainable target for our Courses to be open all the year but we do strive to extend the amount of play possible.

Golf Round and Pace of Play

A round will be deemed to have commenced once a player has teed off at the designated starting tee and playing the course in order to the designated finishing hole. Players must play without undue delay and in accordance with our pace of play guidelines, which are that all players should keep up with the players in front and that the maximum period of time allowed to complete an 18-hole round is 4 hours 15 minutes.

Code of Conduct and Complaints

The overriding principle is that consideration should be shown to others, and to the care of the course, at all times. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship. Any complaint, be it about the state of the course or about the conduct of a member of Staff, is to be made directly to the Duty Manager and not to any other member of Staff. The Duty Manager will investigate and resolve the complaint.
