Current local rules
Temporary Local Rule for Abnormal Ground Conditions
The following areas of the course are ground under repair from which play is prohibited:
1. All trench works across the course and beside the first green.
2. Any ash piles that have resulted from burning off.
If a player's ball lies in these areas, or if it interferes with the player's stance or the area of their intended swing, the player must take relief under Rule 25-1b.
Please note: all recently raked leaf and stick piles are GUR, as they are "piled for removal" by the greenkeepers.
Permanent Local Rule
Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows:
When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment. The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1. This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
New handicap look-up
From April 4th, there is a change to the look-up page for Golf Australia handicaps. Instead of going to the old GolfLink home page, handicaps are now looked up by going to the Golf Australia website at www.golf.org.au. On every page at the Golf Australia website, there is a box at the top where you can enter your GolfLink number to go to your handicap record. The look-up is much faster, with fewer adverts and videos. The slope calculator is also directly available on your handicap page.
We've also saved you time from this website. You can go direct to your handicap page by entering your GolfLink number in the "look up your handicap" box on the home page and you'll be taken straight to your record.
Golf Fore a Cause
Events at Trentham may be included in the Western Open "Golf Fore a Cause" competition operated and supported by Drummond Golf Niddrie. Proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Entry costs an extra $5 over the normal club competition fee, and there is $1500 worth of prizes available each month, including $500 for the best score. All scores will be judged on the golfer's handicapping score in GolfLink. Every golfer who matches or beats their handicap will win a sleeve of three golf balls.
We are always in need of additional volunteers for starting fields and serving in the bar. If there are any members not rostered who would like to help by offering their services, please contact Dick Ellis (Thursday starters), John Hudson (Saturday starters) or Terry South (all bar rosters).
