GolfMark 'High Achiever' Accreditation

On 4th Oct 2013
By Managing Secretary
In General

Bristol & Clifton GC has been awarded GolfMark, a national seal of approval for junior and beginner-friendly facilities which play an important role in the development of the game.  The Club, together with the help from Head Coach Paul Mitchell and his staff, has been a long-time supporter of junior golf but has further developed the junior programme and plans to continue building closer links with local schools and the community. 

With the valued support of the newly appointed Club Welfare Officer, Chrissie Savage, the Club has made significant progress over the past 12 months and the Club will hopefully see the long-term benefits of the work with the juniors.

Debbie Casling, County Development Officer for the Gloucestershire County Golf Partnership, said: “Many people at Bristol & Clifton Golf Club have worked hard to improve policies and procedures and to achieve GolfMark with 'High Achiever' is a well-deserved recognition of the time and effort that have been invested in the future of the Club”.

Well done to all involved!

'Winter Rules' - 3 Oct-31 Mar

On 2nd Oct 2013
By Managing Secretary
In General


“A ball lying on a closely mown area1 through the green2 may be lifted without penalty and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position.  Having lifted the ball, the player must place it on a spot within six inches (150mm) of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard or on a putting green.

A player may place the ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed (Rule 20-4).

If the player fails to mark the position of the ball before lifting it or moves the ball in any other manner, such as rolling it with a club, the player incurs a penalty of one stroke.

Penalty for breach of Local Rule: Match Play – Loss of Hole; Stroke Play – Two Strokes.”

Note 1: “Closely mown area” means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less”. 

Note 2: "Through the Green" means the whole area of the course except (a) the teeing ground and putting green of the hole being played; and (b) all hazards on the course.

Lifting an Embedded Ball, Cleaning – 13th and 16th Holes

An embedded ball anywhere through the green on the 13th & 16th holes, may be marked, lifted, cleaned & replaced.
