- Carry and use sand at all times (hire carts and pull buggies have them supplied; buckets are available should you provide your own pull buggy)
- Fill divots made in the course of play – this will improve the conditions of the fairways for your next visit!
- Enter and leave bunkers from the lowest access point – generally the ‘tee’ or ‘fairway’ side of the bunker via a “tongue”
- Rake your footprints to an even level
- Once you leave the bunker, throw the rake to the centre of the bunker with the rake head facing the green
- Repair your plug mark (and those of others if you care enough) when on the green with a pitch repairer
- Carefully remove and replace the flag into the cup
- Give way at all times to ground staff
- Ensure golfers in the group ahead of you are out of range prior to hitting your next shot – give them a chance to leave the green and move on to the next tee before playing your shot
Please do not:
- Play slow, each hole should take between 10-15 minutes – Aim to keep up with the group in front, and not to keep ahead of the group behind – No one enjoys slow play
- Walk up, or down, the faces of bunkers – just do not walk on the faces of bunkers
- Leave divots unfilled with sand
- Drop the flag stick on the green (hold, or place it on the surface of the green)
- Rule 1 – Keep carts to the cart paths and fairways only – do not drive in the rough, including the 1st cut
- Rule 2 – Keep carts to the cart paths and fairways only – do not drive in the rough, including the 1st cut
- Rule 3 – Keep carts to the cart paths and fairways only… Get the picture?
Seriously, Golf Carts can make playing golf more relaxing and enjoyable. However, when misused, carts can create a lot of damage to the golf course, and in some instances, can even hurt users and others.
A copy of the Contract of Hire Agreement is attached – Cart users are bound by its conditions.

No refund or credit will be given unless the course is deemed unplayable and is closed by management. If play is temporarily suspended due to excessive water (play may be suspended for a maximum 45 minutes before it is deemed unplayable), players will be directed back onto the course once the suspension is lifted.
It is also vitally important that players maintain a safe level of hydration in extreme heat. Eynesbury Golf Pty Ltd does not guarantee water will be provided outside the Pro Shop and Homestead. The drinks cart is often available on weekends and other busy days, however due to Occupational Health and Safety, staff may not be required to work in oppressive heat.
Golfers will not be permitted to commence their round until management has deemed that frost has suficiently cleared. Walking, or driving a cart, on frost may result in damage to the grass plant, especially on greens. This may not be immediately evident, as the dead grass may only be noticed in several days time. Irrigation is not the answer. Irrigation may itself turn to frost. In any event, irrigation water at Eynesbury is recycled water, and by law four hours must elapse from completion to human contact.
