handicap policy:

Every guest who wishes to play 18 holes on our championship course must posess a handicap of 36 or better. Handicap Certificates or Cards are required to be shown in the Pro Shop before the beginning of your round. Every player is asked to provide, and show, their membership card with current Handicap details. If a handicap card is not available, we ask you to provide us with a printed handicap certificate from your home club. We believe this policy improves the "speed of play" thus enhancing "the enjoyment of the game" for all our guests who wish to play 18 holes on our championship course.

The following options are available for guests with a handicap higher than 36 or when no handicap card or certifate is present.

  • The guest must play 9 holes with one of our Academy Golf Professionals. On completion of the round, our Professional will confirm with the Pro Shop if a guest can play the first 9 holes of the 18 hole championship course on other days after 2:30 pm. Tee times available at management discretion.
  • The guest may play our 9 hole Academy course (short course) at any time without handicap limitations or restrictions.

If a guest arrives with tee times which were booked in advance, but with no valid handicap documentation, the guest must forfit these tee times until an official handicap certificate is presented.

Please note, our 18 hole championship course can be played at anytime with one of our Golf Academy Professionals. Should you wish to play only 9 holes with the Professional, we recommend a tee time reservation in the afternoon after 1:00 pm.

In such instances we suggest making an advanced booking. For more information on Rates and green fees click here.
