Winter rules in brief.
Whilst we recommend that you should read the full local rules applicable in winter, we thought that a simple guide might help, as follows:-
There will be a more comprehensive explanation of the rule re the use of mats on the mens notice board.
If your ball is on the fairway, on the short-cut fringes of the greens, or even on a tee, you must do one of three things:
1. Mark the ball, lift it and place it on a mat as near to the marker as possible and play it from the mat.
2. Mark the ball, lift it and place it in the semi-rough or rough at the nearest side of the fairway and play it from there.
3. Use a putter and play the ball where it lies (you can lift, clean & replace the ball under this option).
You can use either side of the mat, but you can’t bend it to shape. You can use a tee-peg to fix it into the ground, but you can’t put the ball on the tee-peg. The ball must be placed in the middle of the mat, not on the edge.
In casual water
If the ball lies in “casual water”, anywhere on the course, then you’re allowed to mark, lift & clean it and then to drop it at the nearest point of relief from the casual water.
Mud on ball in rough
If the ball is just in the semi-rough, or in the rough, and it isn’t embedded in its own pitchmark, then you have to just play the ball as it lies, you’re not allowed to pick it up and clean it, even if it has lumps of mud on it.
Brian Foden hits £100,000 target for charity
Brian Foden has run a Captain’s Charity Golf Day - affectionately known as Fodder’s Charity Event - at Alderley Edge Golf Club for 25 years and this year has reached his amazing total target of £100,000. On 17 September, 60 golfers took part in a very enjoyable and successful day of golf, a meal and a chance for further fundraising in the evening.
Brian spoke at the Golf Day meal and auction that evening about the charity golf events he has run during that time, making a very emotional speech.
He explained: “I just started the event in June 1996 after my mother died that March. She had used the ‘Mast Scanner’ at Macclesfield Hospital and we wanted to raise funds in her memory. I was only going to organise the one event, but everybody told me that I should carry on with this fundraising for different charities. And so the golf event carried on for the next 25 years.
“Over the years we have raised money for at least 15 charities, which are listed on the poster shown in the photograph, and finished in 2021 by supporting this year’s Captain’s Charity - Stockport MIND. On Friday 17 September 2021, through my final event, we raised a fantastic £5,200 which took us to our final total of £100,840, exceeding the original target of £100K.
“I have valued the fantastic and generous support from past Captains, individuals, members and companies who have been instrumental in our success - the full list is shown on the other poster. So, to everybody over the 25 years who played, helped, supported and donated prizes I send my thanks. Also to Alderley Edge Golf Club and all the staff for hosting the golf and the after-golf functions in the clubhouse. Finally, special thanks to my family - Angela, Jordan and Luke - for supporting the ‘Old Man’.”
The team prize winners on the day were Pete Burns, Jordan Foden, Ollie Lane and Luke Foden.
