Recently the captains have sent out a few messages regarding local rules and the way players should care for the course.
One of these is how to replace the rake in the bunker after using it.
By laying just inside the edge bunker you can ruin another players round when their ball comes to rest in an unplayable position just under the lip of the bunker.
All players should replace the rake in the bottom of the bunker in line between the fairway and the pin.

Last column I made mention of charity bowls day in aid of the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the Sandhills Sports Club.
So I decided that it would be a good idea for me to go along and support the day.
I did notice a number of golfers that followed suit and might add that some of them should stay with golf and only play bowls occasionally.
It was an outstanding success for the RFDS and even more pleasing was the fact that almost all of the winners on the day donated back their prize money.
