Revised Guidelines on Flagsticks and Rakes

Following revised guidelines issued by Golf Ireland the following changes to Golf Ireland’s Protocol will take effect from 23rd. July 2021
1. Flagsticks may be removed according to the standard rules. Inserts will be taken away from golf cups. It is advised that only one player should handle the flagstick on each hole.
2. Bunker rakes will be reintroduced. The local rule of placing within the bunker will no longer apply.

Members are urged to strictly adhere to existing protocols and are strongly advised to carry their own pocket hand sanitizer to sanitize hands after each hole following use of flagstick and/or rake.
