Visitor Guidance Notes

A few days before arrival organisers are asked to make the members of their party aware of the dress code requirements both on and off the Course and the notes on Care of the course at the foot of this page. For dress codes click here.

With 120 spaces in our Car Park, most of which are unreserved, visitors should be able to find a space easily. At very busy times overflow arrangements may apply. The wearing of metal spikes in the Car Park is not allowed. You should report to the Professional on arrival who will provide you with the code for the security system for that day which will allow you access to the locker rooms and Clubhouse. Entry to the Men’s locker room is at the back of the Clubhouse, past the Professional's shop. Access to the Ladies locker room is from the Car Park near the entrance to the Pro’s Shop.

Bromborough Golf Club has no liability for lost possessions. Please lock your clubs and trolley out of sight in your car before play and between and after rounds.

Towels are provided for the use of players but should be placed in the bins provided for laundering after use.

You are requested to use the Dining Room for formal meals though bar snacks can be consumed in the Main Lounge. The Main Lounge is directly opposite the top of the stairs and the Dining Room is to the left.

The use of mobile phones is unrestricted on the ground floor of the Clubhouse, except for the Snooker Room, but they must be switched to silent and not used when players are on the 1st floor. Their use is banned on the Course except in the event of an emergency.

Unless other arrangements have been made with the Secretary, payments must be made on the day, before play, to the Professional and/or the House Manager.

In common with all public places, smoking including e-cigarettes is not allowed anywhere on the premises. Ashtrays are provided outside the main entrance.

Visitors play will be from Yellow tees for Men and Red tees for Ladies unless directed otherwise.  You are asked to give precedence to matches being played from the White Competition tees.

"Slow play" should be avoided and players are encouraged to play when ready provided it is safe to do so. However, do not play until you are sure that it is safe to do so. If in doubt, please wait.

If players are unable to score on a hole they are asked to pick up their ball and move on. Try to keep with the game in front of you rather than in front of the game behind you. Players must always let a faster moving game through and a 4ball should aim to complete their round in 4.25 hours.

There is a public right of way that crosses the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 14th, 16 and 17th fairways and the practice ground and you are requested to respect the right of walkers to use it.

Care Of The Course


Raking Bunkers After Play
 

For guidance notes on raking bunkers - click here.

In accordance with revised R&A guidelines players are asked to leave rakes outside of the bunkers after use, in a position where they are least likely to affect play.  

Restore Divots, Repair Ball Marks And Damage By Spikes


Through the green, a player should ensure that any turf, cut or displaced by him is replaced at once and pressed down, and that any damage to the putting green made by the ball is carefully repaired. Damage to the putting green caused by golf shoe spikes should be repaired on completion of the hole.

Damage To Greens

Players should ensure that, when putting down bags, or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green, and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it, in handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.

Damage Through Practice Swings

In taking practice swings, players should avoid causing damage to the course, particularly the tees, by removing divots.
