Rule 9 of the Rules of Play:

The Association has recently updated Rule 9 in regard to giving advice while playing a match. We ask all players to read the following extract from Rule 9 which explains quite clearly the situation on giving advice. There can be no excuses for not adhering to ,this rule during the running of the Pennant. If you suspect that your opposition is guilty of giving/receiving advice report it to your Team Manger or Convenor who will pass on the complaint to the Super Senior Captain to deal with.


ADVICE: Under Rule 24.4a of the Rules of Golf, the Super Senior Committee allows each team to name a person who may give advice to team members while they are playing on the course. The appointed person is to be nominated as the Team Manager or his appointee, on the Game Result Sheet of that day.

1. The person nominated as Team Manager: a. may also be a player, but must not give advice to other players in the team while playing or b. may also act as a caddie but must not give advice to other players in the team while acting as a caddie.

2. Penalty for breach of 1. above a. Loss of hole by the Team Manager or the player for whom he/she is caddying. Any player receiving advice in breach of this Term is also subject to the General Penalty should they not prevent receiving further advice beyond the initial advice offered that penalized that team manager. b. Only a Player’s caddie or the person nominated as non playing Team Manager may give advice. Team mates and spectators are not permitted to give advice to a player during their individual match.

3. Penalty for breach 2b. above: A player accepting advice from persons other than that outlined above will be subject to the General Penalty ,i.e. loss of hole. Any player receiving advice in breach of 2b. above is also subject to the General Penalty should they not prevent receiving further advice beyond the initial advice offered, that penalized the player.

4. The person nominated as Team Manager must not change during a game, unless that Game is suspended/postponed and resumes another day, or unless there are exceptional circumstances. In these circumstances, the relevant Host Club Official in charge of the Game must first be consulted.
