For courtesy visits to other Clubs in the 1895 scheme some basic courtesies/rules are to be followed:
- Members make their own arrangements (IN ADVANCE) with the secretary of the Club they wish to visit. (Do not turn up unannounced.)
- Members must take with them a letter of introduction and a handicap certificate. This is available from the professional’s shop.
- Check with the host Club their dress rules and respect them.
- Numbers to be kept to a reasonable level at any one visit as are the number of times visits are to the same Club.
- Some Clubs have put restrictions on the number of visitors at any one time and these are shown on the bottom of the list of participating Clubs. Please check before you make any requests.
The original arrangements included a 75 mile separation between Clubs for visits to take place, meaning that some effort should be made by visitors, rather than a short ride to a neighbour Club, thus avoiding the possibility of convenience leading to nuisance visits. However a few Clubs have come to mutually agreed reductions in the separation distance, and this is a matter entirely decided by the Clubs in question.
