Our list of Club Rules and Regulations is straightforward and in line with the traditions of the club. These regulations have been put in place to ensure that standards of dress and behaviour in the clubhouse and on the course are kept as high as possible – we are sure that they will be appreciated by all who enjoy the finest the game has to offer.

Making yourself aware of the rules will avoid any embarrassment to yourself or to officials and members of the club. For us, the ownership and maintenance of this historic course and clubhouse is a source of great pride and pleasure. Naturally we wish every golfer who plays here to enjoy our course and facilities to the full.

Course Care and Player Consideration

Please leave the course as you would expect to find it by repairing all pitch marks and replacing divots.

Give players around you due consideration by keeping up with pace of play and call the game behind you through, if you lose a hole on the players in front.

All visitors must sign the Visitors Book and pay green fees before playing and display their temporary membership tags visibly on their golf bag.

In the unlikely event that the rules are not complied with Manchester Golf Club reserves the right to request any visitor to leave the course and/or clubhouse.

Please follow these rules and enjoy your golf at Manchester Golf Club!
