Captains' Drive In

The Drive in and drive out took place on Sunday, 4 January in very murky conditions but all four new Captains managing to hit the ball well - albeit into the unknown recesses of the first fairway!! The new Captains are Men's Captain - Marcel Veillet, Lady Captain - Mary Hill, Seniors' Captain - Terry Weight and Junior Captain - Rhys Powell.

However, high tec has made it to Kington – because of the lack of visibility on the Drive In our Pro,  Sarah,  came to the rescue with her state of the art machine a GC2 Launch Monitor which connected via Blue Tooth to her iPad and gave the correct distance and run of the ball.  The outcome of this gadget meant that Robin Price took the spoils for his guess of 721 yards for the combined diven total of the four Captains. The actual distance was 752 and Robin's was the best guess.  This raised £120.10 which was the first amount to go into the  joint Captains' Charity which this year will be St Michaels Hospice.

Winter Rules


Members and visitors are respectfully requested to observe the following Winter Rules which are designed to protect the course and promote fair play:

Preferred Lies

In general play a ball lying on a closely mown area may be marked, lifted, cleaned and replaced within 12 inches, not nearer the hole.

However, in qualifying competitions the ball must be replaced within 6 inches.

A player can only replace his ball once, if the ball subsequently moves there is no penalty but the ball must be played as it lies.

If a player fails to mark his ball before lifting, or moves the ball in any other manner, eg:  with his club, he incurs a one-shot penalty.

Grass Bunkers

Preferred lies may be taken in all grass bunkers as explained in Preferred Lies above.

Par 3's

Preferred lies may be taken with the areas enclosed by white lines.

Restricted Areas

Play is prohibited from renovated and worn areas labelled PP.  The ball my be dropped at the nearest point of relief, without penalty.  Also, walkways restricted by metal posts and ropes must not be crossed.

Determination of relief areas

This is sometimes difficult at Kington.  In a competition please consult your playing partners and, in the interests of fair play, if in doubt play the ball as it lies.

Xmas Carols & Mulled Wine

A huge thank you from all of us to those who supported us on Thursday evening at the Christmas Carols and Mulled Wine at the Club - to Glyn & Gill Wictome who kept us all supplied with mulled wine - to the ladies of the Club who made all the delicious food - to all who provided prizes for the raffle and of course to the wonderful singers, choir and harpist.

It was standing room only in the Clubhouse and the evening raised a total of £750 for the Club.  However, a very special thank you is due to Tim Hall of Breedon Aggregates who topped this up to a massive £1,000.

New Ruling - Rule 24-2b/6

You may be aware of a fence that has been put up against the out of bounds wall on the right hand side of the 1st.   To accommodate this we have brought in the following ruling -  Rule 24-2b/6  - Relief from Immovable Obstruction Incidentally Results in Relief from Boundary fence -

This rule states although the player takes relief from the obstruction he will incidentally get relief from the wall and confirms the player is entitled to invoke Rule 24 -2b in such circumstances.  This allows the player to lift and drop the ball within one club-length without penalty not nearer the hole etc.
