PostSubject: Why golfers just can't follow the regulation of a club?   Sun Sep 08, 2013 10:51 am

Yesterday was at pulai...saw a marshal talking & following closely to a flight. It seems, the flight of golfers insist to drive into the fairway even thou the course does not allow....
The marshal finally left after ensuring they follow the rules for a few holes...
However, the moment when I saw them again...their buggies are again...in the fairway....marshal has left...
It's sad/disappointed to see such behaviors....what is the difficulty, to just follow the rules of the club...

They are probably sick or weak golfers can't walk too much
only can hit golf ball! So can't blame them for driving into the
fairways!

If tats to b, we can understand. Wink 
But why wld a sick or weak golfer(s) be at the course in the first place? Question 
Health cme first, mate. Cool 
I hve encounter golfers teeing off fm White and drove into the course despite instruction given by counter staff and marshal statg that buggy on track only before start. Nt only they ll damaged any beautiful courses but they ll also send out unneccessary pressure to the poor frt flight that they were either slow play or lousy golfers lor!Mad 
If you re in a hurry, play 9 holes course ll do.Very Happy 
Enjoyed the Sunday, GR.

Do that in Singapore clubs and I can assure you a warning would be given first. If found to repeat the offence again, the golfers would probably be asked to leave and barred from 1 month to .... months, depending on the severity of the offence and how the golfers react.


In Malaysia, unfortunately, the clubs want revenue and therefore couldn't do anything about it. I still think the club should hold fast to the regulations and not be afraid to impose it. This, I believe will enhance the club's reputation. Therefore serious and law-abiding golfers will likely be attracted to it.


I wish clubs implement the buggy on track rules, like Horizon Hills and some other clubs, or even allow walking with caddies carrying the bags, like JGC.

My friend was warned by OCC Marshall once for failing to repair divot. He was told that subsequent irresponsible behaviour would lead to banning from playing in OCC ... I think banning is a little too harsh ... Maybe suspension for a month is more appropriate. Anyway, OCC can afford to do that ... If you don't wanna play in OCC, there are plenty who wanna play there ... Rolling Eyes Laughing

I heard Palm Resort might implement turf mate for Allamandar course. Currently for Allamandar course, it is strictly buggy on track ... How I wish they implement Allamandar as a walking course with caddies as option ... In Starhill Bintan course, it is a walking course with caddy ... I love walking course with caddy ...I can feel like a touring PRO even though I dun play like one ...  Cool

Actually local clubs more strict on this, including mbgc. Jb most of the courses machiam kenna arty bombardment on the fairway and green. If all players repair their owned divots and pitch marks there only at the max 4 holes on the fairway and green.

Bro,  if you look at the among of divots not being repaired in the fairway, you will understand why actions have to be taken.  Anyway, the ban is more a suspension.  I have a friend who got banned for 3 months too for that.

Every weekend, we see golfers, interestly members and non members, doing excavation on the course and just walk away with bothering to fill up the meteoric holes that they have created.  A couple of times, we had to tell them to go back and repair the divots. At the end of the day, we just want to have an enjoyable time on the course.  Many times, you have a good drive just to find that the ball ends up in a divot.... Sad

Sometimes it is not the golfers.. I notice a lot of maintenance staff drive the buggy everywhere.. Through roughs , soggy grounds, up the slopes to the tee boxes.. They are the ones who are causing more damage to the course rather then maintaining it.

I have personally scolded some when they try to dry up tee boxes and buggy skidded along the slopes.
