FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Members of the Committee often get asked to explain various rules of golf, especially in relation to features found on the Minthis Hills course, such as the island green on the 13th and the walls of the irrigation ditches that run alongside or across certain fairways. Consequently it has been decided to try to clarify the more frequently asked quetions in this section of the web.

If you click on the PDF file icon PDF on one of the topics in the list below a file will open explaining the query and the Committee's response. If you have a query that is not in this table then please submit it using the form in the "Contact Us" section of the website and we will try to get the answer for you, and if it is deemed to be of general interest we will include it in this section.
