Etiquette & Course Care

There are four main areas of etiquette, which are Course Care, Safety, Consideration for Others and Pace of Play. Click here to read the Etiquette section from the Rules of Golf.

Course Care:

We ask members and guests to take the time to read the following fact sheets and be aware of the important role they play in maintaining the high standards our golf course is presented to.

The Brisbane Golf Club follows the recommendation of The R&A and USGA Match Committee and asks members to leave the rakes outside of bunkers.

Entry and Exit Points – As part of the green replacement program (GRP) we have re-designed many of our bunkers to ensure they have a clear entry and exit point that protects their quality. Members are encouraged to use those entry and exit points at all times. These are generally more level areas thus making the raking and maintaining of the bunkers easier also.

Safety and Consideration for Others:

Outgoings calls are permitted but are to made out of earshot of fellow members and should be restricted to calls of an essential nature only.
