Our Dress

Dress with Respect
Members and visitors are requested to maintain a standard of dress commensurate with the dignity of the game. The professional shop staff and facility management may refuse access to the course to any person not complying with the minimum standards. The mere fact that a person’s dress complies with these regulations does not necessarily mean that it is acceptable. Smartness, neatness and cleanliness are the inflexible standards.

Torn, faded, stone washed or untidy clothing will not be permitted at any time. Closed in shoes are required at all times. No thongs are allowed.

On the Course – Male
Clothing must be appropriate for golf. Shirts must have collars and sleeves; polo/mock collars and skivvies are acceptable. Elastic or drawstring waist and denim jeans/shorts are not permitted. Socks may be of any colour.

Wet Weather Policy

Please note that at Gibraltar Golf Course once a player tees off (in rain or otherwise) there will be no cash refunds, credit card refunds or credits for play on any other day issued.

It is the responsibility of every player to check the weather in advance.

Gibraltar Golf Course is not liable if a player decides to take the risk and pay for a round despite incoming weather.

However, should the Starter deem it necessary to close the course during play, and play is not resumed, credit for another game will be provided.

No siren will be sounded for lightning. All players are urged to be responsible and respectful of the prevailing weather conditions.

Lightning
At any time when there is storm activity nearby there is a significant risk of being struck by lightning. Due to the unpredictability of lightning strikes it is not possible to determine when players are at risk. Gibraltar Golf Course Management will not be liable for death or injury by lightning by attempting to forecast it. Players should seek shelter inside an enclosed building without delay if there is a risk.

As a general advice places and things to avoid include: –

  • Small structures or sheds
  • Open fields
  • Near to the tallest localised structure such as surveillance tower, tree, light pole, antenna)
  • Umbrellas
  • Swimming pools, lakes, dams, or water generally

Persons should also refrain from holding or contacting metal objects or using devices connected to electrical or phone lines.

Likewise, storms can exacerbate the possibility of falling objects such as tree limbs.

Gibraltar Golf Course has adopted a policy common to many golf courses in that it is the responsibility of each player to check weather forecasts before playing at this facility.

If you have any questions at all regarding this information, please see the Golf Course Operations Manager

Competitions

Countbacks
At Gibraltar Golf Course, competition management is undertaken by shop staff to manage all competitions. The software in use is by BRS/Golf Genius which has been tested to conform with the requirements of Golf Australia. The countback system we use in arriving at competition placings is along the lines of that recommended by Golf Australia.

The winner and other placing are determined based on the best score for the last nine holes. If the tying players have the same score for the last nine, determine the winner based on the last six holes, last three holes, and finally hole-by-hole from the 18th hole. If this method is used in a handicap stroke play competition, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc of the handicaps should be deducted. Fractions should not be disregarded. Ties are to be decided over the last nine, last six, last three, and last hole, in the event of a tie at that point then an 18-hole count back will be carried out. In 36, 54, and 72-hole events, the last 18 holes shall be used and if still tied count back as per an 18-hole round. In 27-hole events, the 18-hole card shall be used in the first instance.

Types of competitions
Information on the types of competitions and how they are played can be found on the GA website https://www.golf.org.au/

Handicapping
Gibraltar Golf Course administers handicaps to the requirements of Golf Australia. Full details on the GA Handicap System can be seen on the GA website https://www.golf.org.au/whs/

The competition card 
A pre-printed competition scorecard can be provided by the pro shop. This will have the player’s name and playing handicap as well as details of the competition being played. These scorecards must be entered manually into the BRS /Golf Genius system at the terminals located in the shop.

  • If a player fails (for a reason which is not approved by the Operations Manager) to return a complete score as soon as practicable after completion of their round, the round will be recorded as ‘No Score – Not Approved’.
  • A player may discontinue play if they consider, in equity, that extreme weather conditions make it unreasonable for them to continue. In this case they should alert the Operations Manager or shop staff and their card may be recorded as ‘No Score – Approved’.
  • Members competing in a round of competition, outside of normal competition hours, MUST use the BRS scoring app (details provided by Gibraltar Golf Course) and finalize scores as soon as possible and before leaving the course after their competition round.  Failure to do this will result in disqualification. The pro-shop being closed is deemed to be an insufficient reason for the non-return of a competition score and disqualification will result for the player(s) when not submitting a score when required to do so.
