OUR TEMPORARY LOCAL RULES

DRAINAGE CHANNELS
Relief may be taken without penalty, within one club length from the nearest point of relief and not nearer the hole when a ball is lying on drainage channel workings across the 1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th fairways. This also applies to the drainage channel to the right of the 10th green.

AERATION HOLES
Through the green – a ball that comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be lifted without penalty and dropped as near as possible to the spot where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green.

On the putting green – a ball that comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be lifted without penalty and replaced at the nearest point not nearer the hole that avoids the situation.

Through the green means - The whole area of the course except:
1) The teeing ground and putting surface of the hole being played
2) Penalty areas


GREEN DAMAGE
A ball lying on or having an area of damaged green between the ball and the intended line of putt may be marked and replaced (6 inches to the left or right) not nearer the hole without penalty.

FAIRWAY MATS
When preferred lies are in operation players may use mats on closely mown areas. This is effective from the 1st October to the 31st March.

BALLS LANDING ON TEES IN WINTER
To prevent damage to tees (usually the ladies tees), when a ball in play lands on any tee the following local rule will apply:

RULE: A ball coming to rest on any tee MUST be lifted, cleaned and dropped without penalty at the nearest point of complete relief not nearer the hole.

This rule will only apply until we revert to playing competitions off white tees.

The Manor is an excellent course. Well varied fairways and bunker obstacles. Good variety with water features as well. Greens are now coming on well. The green keeper's are always doing a fine job keeping the course in great condition. The pro shop are always welcoming and accommodating to enquires. The tee areas are well marked and have map boards. The back 4 holes are a tester with a great 18th hole with 8 bunkers. This is overlooked by the 19th clubhouse which is very good and serves great food.

The club has its own driving range and a great 6 hole par 3 tester, great idea especially for families. Richard the pro is always on hand and has a good professional approach and his staff always friendly. Most of my friends like the course and club and say it's not the easiest but a great challenge. I would highly recommend The Manor golf course. They have a great membership deal on at the moment check it out.
