When playing at Ferndown you have a responsibility to behave in a manner that does not spoil the enjoyment of other Visitors or Members of the Club.
Etiquette and Slow Play
We understand that every golfer does not play to the same standard or at the same speed. It is most inconsiderate to hold up players behind you and to do so would ruin their day. PLEASE CALL THEM THROUGH. A Fourball should take no longer than 4 hours.
Our bunkers are very difficult even when properly raked –unraked bunkers can be virtually impossible. Please do not leave a bunker without raking it.
Help us to keep the Course in fine condition: please replace divots and repair pitch marks.
