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:
- All trench works across the course and beside the first green.
- 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.
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.
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).
Thursday starter rosters January - February 2018
Thank you for your ongoing support. If you cannot attend on your rostered day please arrange a change with someone else listed and notify Dick Ellis.
With the introduction of OneGolf, starting now involves collecting and recording competition fees and assembling and despatching playing groups.
Hit-off times are 10.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Please aim to be at the clubhouse just prior to 10.00 a.m. on the day you are a starter. To avoid being "stranded" at the end, arrange for someone to join you for a late hit-off.
