Visitors Info

Visitors please read the course guide, on the Home page, before playing the course. 


It is a club requirement that all golf is booked, prior to play (either as an entrant to a club competition/coaching session or as a general player as a member or visitor), and the names of all players in the group must be recorded. 

The link for bookings (and payment) is here . 

If unable to book a tee-time for any reason, please contact the Club Secretary-  Pete Haslam on 07738865158. Please check the Calendar on the Fixtures section on the Members' tab for details of any competitions scheduled for the date of your visit. 

Current playing conditions :

White Tees : Please remember that play is only permitted from the White Tees in official Gents' club competitions, excluding Thursday Sweeps. This is to preserve the small teeing areas available to us for the benefit of all.

Bunker play at Gatehouse GC has returned to normal and players must play the ball as it lies or take penalty relief for an unplayable lie in a bunker under Rule 19.3. Players should rake the bunker after a shot to remove the mark made by the shot and any footprints made when approaching the ball or leaving the hazard. 

Flagsticks may be removed from the hole when putting, or left in, as determined by the player making a stroke, If the flagstick is left in, then a ball coming to rest against the flagstick, with any part of the ball below the level of the green, is deemed to have been holed. 

Players are reminded that slow play is to be avoided at all times. The proper pace of play is just behind the group in front and not just ahead of the group behind. If you are holding players up then please invite them to play through.

It is not for the group behind to ask. 

Due to the increased number of cars at the club because of high usage of the course, players are asked to park considerately in the car park to allow the maximum number of vehicles to be parked safely and remember that the tennis court users are also entitled to use the car park.
