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 fairway and green.
- Any ash piles that have resulted from burning off.
- Tree works around the 1st and 9th greens.
- Ground tree stumps.
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.
A note on cart hire
If members or visitors wish to hire a cart during competitions, you must arrange this with Karen or Larissa in the Birdie Kitchen. Please do not just take a cart, it may be already hired by other members or visitors
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).
Thank you for volunteering. If you cannot attend on your rostered day please arrange a change with someone else listed, or contact Dick Ellis (Thursday roster) or John Hudson (Saturday roster).
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.

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 Stableford handicapping score in GolfLink. Every golfer who matches or beats their handicap will win a sleeve of three golf balls.
