Following overnight snow, our course is closed today, Saturday 17th March (and possibly tomorrow). An update will appear here early on Sunday 18th March, following an inspection by our Head Greenkeeper. 

Our Head Greenkeeper has also asked us to emphasise the importance of all course users repairing pitch marks on greens and replacing fairway divots.  All to often this is not being done so the co-operation of all members and visitors in this regard would be very much appreciated.


As members will know from the recent circular email issued by the Club Office, the General Committee has decided to introduce the R & A's new "Ready Golf" principles for all future Medal and Stableford competitions at our club (NB matchplay competitions are unaffected by this measure).

Taking care to employ common sense to ensure that playing out of turn does not endanger other players, "Ready Golf" for the purposes of our competitions includes the following measures:

-     Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is talking time to assess their options;
-     Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait;
-     Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being able to play;
-     Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball;
-     Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else's line;
-     Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker;
-    When a player's ball has gone over the back of the green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot;
-     Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off

Our Seniors held their second competition of 2018 on Tuesday 6th February. 48 hardy souls braved the chilly though latterly sunny conditions to play a best three-scores-of-four Team Stableford.  On a clearly difficult day for scoring, Seniors Captain Graham Ramm's team came in with a near par total score of 106 stableford points. Even better, Graham raised almost ¬£200 for his Captain's charity, Prostate Cancer UK, in a raffle kindly sponsored by the Brome Grange Hotel.  Graham (centre) is pictured here with his team mates, (left to right) Roger Greenacre, John Sparks and Ron Ashdown. Also in the picture is Graz Lembo, who won the raffle prize of a three course meal for two at the Brome Grange!


Members and visitors will wish to be aware that winter rules/preferred lies are now in place at Diss GC until further notice. Under this rule, a ball lying on a closely mown area "through the green" may be lifted without penalty and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, he/she must place it on a spot within six inches of, and not nearer the hole, where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard and not on a putting green. Please note that a player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed. "Closely-mown area" means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less.
