Dress-code on the courses

The weather conditions have improved significantly, considering we had two cold fronts close to each other a couple of weeks ago. We can all agree that South Africa has the best winter conditions when it comes to golf. The warmer weather does make playing golf a little bit more enjoyable, especially teeing off early in the morning. Players will also have the enjoyment of not wearing layers and layers of clothing to protect themselves from the cold, which makes swinging a golf club much easier. Over the last month, the golf team has been paying extra attention when it comes to the dress code on the courses. Members are reminded that correct golf attire must be worn at all times, tracksuits are not part of the dress code on the courses, even if you are wearing a pair of golf shorts underneath.

Here are some examples that will not be allowed on the golf courses:
Denim pants – jeans
Football, rugby or any sports jersey or shirt
No socks
Beach, training or combat shorts
Slops, trainers or improper golf shoes

We kindly request your assistance to ensure all golfers dress accordingly.

Rules of Golf

Myself (Rikert Schalkwyk) and Arthur Heinrich attended the Level 2 Rules of Golf course last week Thursday and Friday at Wanderers Golf Course, hosted by GolfRSA. It was two very interesting days; we learned so much and we will be sharing some of the interesting rules and rulings with our members going forward. We were very surprised at some rules that we all take for granted that are not adhered to at all times. I think the most common mistake and probably the rule that gets broken by most golfers is rule 10 in the 2019 R&A Rules of Golf. The rule covers how to prepare for and make a stroke, including advice and other help the player may get from others (including caddies). As per the description of the rule, it states that the underlying principle is that golf is a game of skill and personal challenge. The rule covers the ball being double hit (no penalty), players anchoring their clubs while a stroke is being made, and the limits of advice being given on the course and other help a player may get during a round.

Advice on the course is a big no, and during a round players must not do the following:
Advise anyone in the competition who is playing on the course
Ask anyone for advice, other than the players’ caddie, or
Touch another player’s equipment to learn information that would be advice given by or asked of the player (such as touching the other player’s clubs or bag to see what club is being used)

This does not apply before a round, while play is stopped under Rule 5.7a or between rounds in a competition. However, if you play in a format like Betterball or Foursomes, a player may advise his or her partner or the partner’s caddie and may ask the partner or partner’s caddie for advice.

The most surprising thing we both learned is the fact that a player is allowed to hold an umbrella over his or her head while making a stroke. The catch is that players must hold the umbrella, not the caddie or playing partner. A caddie is allowed to hold the umbrella over the player’s head before the stroke is being made; the caddie must move away before the stroke starts and breaching this rule can lead to a two-stroke penalty in Strokeplay or loss of hole in Matchplay.
