CADDIES

Caddies should be requested in advance and are subject to availability.  No outside caddies are permitted without permission of the caddy master.

Caddies are not employed by the Club itself, but are engaged by golfers who might require their assistance when playing golf. Those caddies  are of varying levels:  some are extremely capable at reading the lines of putts, calculating the distances to pins and recommending clubs to players.  No matter what level of competence may have been attained, all caddies are required to be courteous and show great care for the course itself.  They understand the need to repair pitch marks, divots and to rake untidy bunkers.  The safety of personal effects is the responsibility of the player.

DRESS CODE

  • IN THE CLUB HOUSE – Smart casual or Golf regulation.
  • ON THE GOLF COURSE – Recognised golf attire.
  • Management has the right to determine what is acceptable.

CLUBHOUSE

  • Articles of value should not be left in the Locker Rooms as the Club cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.
  • When taking mobile telephone calls, please consider others, be discreet, and preferably move outdoors.
  • In terms of the Liquor Law, persons under 18 years of age are not permitted to approach the bar.

PARKING

Car parking is available in Mandy Road, just after the Pro Shop, and is clearly identifiable.  It is in our Visitor’s interest to ensure that vehicles are securely locked and that valuables are kept out of sight.  Although security guards are in operation, Southbroom Golf Club cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to personal belongings.  Changing of golf clothing and shoes and partaking of drinks and snacks in the car park is strictly forbidden.
