Etiquette & Dress Code

General Etiquette

Rotherham is a fairly relaxed club, but we do ask visitors to respect our rules and standard golfing etiquette to ensure their visit runs as smoothly as possible.

Although handicap certificates are not mandatory, we do prefer golfers to be of a sufficient standard for them to be able to enjoy their round and for them not to inconvenience other players when out on the course.

Please keep pace with the group in front of you and avoid slow play.

Switch off phones or select silent mode whilst on the course and/or in the clubhouse. They can be used for GPS purposes.
