Guests & green fees

HGC welcomes visitors to play 9 or 18 holes as green fees or as guests playing with current members. Green fee players must telephone in advance to check course availability – 020 8455 0203 and connect to The Office. Once at the Club, here is what all visitors need to know:

  • All green fees or other purchases can be paid for with cash or card either at the Pro Shop, the Office inside the clubhouse, or at the bar.
  • Items such as golf balls, tees, gloves etc are on sale in the fully stocked Pro Shop or at the bar.
  • Rental clubs are available and note that each player must either bring or hire a set of clubs – it is not acceptable to share one set between several players.
  • Pull trolleys and a motorised buggy are also for hire (click here to read our buggy policy to ensure your safety).
  • HGC asks all visitors to accept the Club’s golfing and clubhouse dress codes which reflect contemporary expectations while remaining in keeping with the traditions of golf. The locker rooms are available to visitors if a change of clothing or shoes is required
  • On the course, recognised standard golf wear must be worn along with regular golf shoes (Note: juniors under 12 can wear suitable alternative footwear). Soft spiked shoes are preferable and can also be worn, when clean and dry, into the clubhouse area; metal spikes are good for the course, but not the clubhouse.
  • Clean and dry golf wear or other smart casual clothing is required post-round in the clubhouse or on the front lawn. Note that certain events may require smarter, post-golf attire.
  • More informal clothing such as track suits, running shorts, cycling shorts, vests, men’s sleeveless/collarless t-shirts, beach wear etc is not appropriate either on the course or in the clubhouse. Also, golf caps or other sporting headgear should be worn while playing and then removed in the clubhouse.
  • For insurance purposes, all guests must sign the visitors book located either in the Pro Shop or the bar before play.

HOW TO FIND HGC

Hampstead Golf Club is the nearest golf course to Central London, a short drive from the North Circular and Hampstead and Highgate villages. Car parking is usually available at non-peak times, but members do get preference, and so green fees and guests may feel more comfortable to park on Winnington Road which is free at all times. The best public transport option is a 210 bus to Kenwood House or the H3 to Winnington Road followed by a 5-minute walk to the course.

Full address for GPS phone apps: 82 Winnington Road, London, N2 0TU.

If further details are required, phone 020 8455 0203 (connect to The Office) or email info@hampsteadgolfclub.co.uk

ETIQUETTE ESSENTIALS

Golfers at HGC are asked to behave with respect to other players and follow normal golfing etiquette guidelines that are the same or similar in golf clubs across the UK. This will allow more enjoyment of the game while showing consideration to others.

Preventing Unnecessary Damage to the Course

The surfaces of the greens are particularly precious. Players must carefully repair any divot holes and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball whether or not made by the player him or herself. On completion of the hole, all players in the group should check for other damage to the putting green caused by golf shoes or clubs and carry out any necessary repairs.

After hitting out of a bunker, players must use the rakes provided to carefully smooth the surface of the sand. If a rake is not available, then use a club to do the best job you can and then report the missing rake to the office.

Other ways to avoid damage to the course include:

  • Do not remove divots when taking practice swings or by hitting the club into the ground, whether in anger or for any other reason.
  • Ensure you do not damage the putting green or fringe areas when putting down clubs or the flagstick.
  • Avoid standing too close to the hole (especially when the green is wet) and take care not to damage the edge of the cup when handling the flagstick or when removing a ball from the hole.
  • Do not use clubhead to remove a ball from the cup.
  • Do not lean on a club on the putting green.
  • Replace the flagstick in the centre of the hole before leaving the putting green.
  • Follow any local notices regulating the movement of golf carts or pull trolleys.

Pace of Play

Players must keep up with the group playing immediately in front. If your group falls a hole behind, you should invite the players behind to play through, irrespective of the number of golfers in that group. If your group is in touch with those in front, but it is apparent that the group behind can play faster, you should invite the faster-moving group to play through.

Be Ready to Play

You should be ready to take your shot as soon as it is your turn to play. When on or near the putting green, leave your bags or carts just off the green in the direction of the next tee. When all players in the group have putted out, leave the putting green quickly and mark your scorecard on the next tee. It is advisable to leave the flag in the green for social games of golf.

Lost Ball

If you think your ball may be lost from the tee or the from the fairway, play a provisional ball. The rules of golf now state that you have only three minutes to look for a ball once you arrive at the approximate spot where it is expected to be. It may be appropriate to signal the players in the group behind to play through if the ball is not immediately in view, especially if the group has been waiting for a number of holes and is clearly playing more quickly. You or your group should then not continue play until the group you called through has passed and is out of range.

Consideration for Others

Take care not to disturb or distract other players by moving, talking or making unnecessary noise. Phones or other electronic devices taken onto the course must also not distract other players. Only tee your ball up when it’s your turn to play and remember not to stand close to other players in your group when they are about to swing. Standing to the side rather than directly behind the next player is usually most appropriate.

On the Putting Green

You should be careful not stand on another player’s line of putt or walk over it, especially when he/she is putting. Also, be careful that your shadow does not fall on his/her line. It is normal to remain on or close to the putting green until all other players in the group have holed out.

Scoring

In strokeplay, if you are the designated marker, it is best practice to check scores and mark the scorecard at the next tee after putting out.

HGC has two very talented and active PGA professionals. Marie Martindale and Tony Sheaff both offer lessons all-year round either for individuals or for small groups and will help both beginners get started and improvers lower their handicaps.

A range of HGC branded hats, shirts, sweaters and other golfwear is available in the Pro Shop and behind the bar – treat yourself to something bearing the unique HGC logo.

HGC Buggy Policy

Introduction

The use of ride-on buggies is not encouraged by the Club, as the topography and design of the course are not generally suited to their use, and there is very limited space for their storage. However, as a result of disability or injury some members, guests or visitors may not be able to play golf without the help provided by a buggy, and the Club aims to provide a buggy for use in these circumstances. The purpose of this policy is to set down the criteria to be applied and conditions to be met when the Club considers applications for use of a buggy, and standards for its safe operation.

Eligibility

A buggy may only be used when authorised by the Club and use is restricted to members, visitors and guests demonstrably having a genuine incapacity to play golf unless aided by the use of a buggy. A buggy may only be used during competitions by members with a disability within the meaning of the Equality Act, 2010. A medical certificate may be required.
As exceptions to the above, the Club Professionals may use a buggy whilst giving lessons on the course, and Club staff may use a buggy whilst undertaking their duties on the course.

Buggy drivers must be over 18 years of age. If a player requiring use of a buggy is under age 18, another person may drive the buggy on the player’s behalf. The Club reserves the right to refuse or withdraw authorisation for use of a buggy if any of the conditions stipulated in this policy are not complied with.

The General Manager may prohibit any individual from driving or being carried on a buggy. Reinstatement of authorisation can only be made by the Captains’ Committee. The Club also reserves the right to withdraw authorisation if the medical condition or disability necessitating the use of a ride-on buggy ceases.

  1. Reservations
    The General Manager or approved nominee must be given prior notice of a requirement by a member, visitor or guest to use a buggy, so that the necessary paperwork can be completed. Reservations may be made in advance by notifying the office. If more than one request is made for use of a buggy at a particular time, priority will be given to a person with a disability within the meaning of the Equality Act, 2010, where applicable, or otherwise to the first reservation made.
    A hiring fee is payable, as determined from time to time by the Management Committee.
  2. Adverse Weather or Course ConditionsUse of buggies may be temporarily suspended if the Club staff determine that the state of the course or the weather is such that safety on, or the condition of, the course may be unacceptably compromised if a buggy is used. This might apply to the whole or just part of the course. Potentially unsuitable conditions include waterlogging, frost, etc. Where such conditions arise, the Club will review the situation on at least a twice daily basis.
  3. Safety Policy
    The Club has a duty of care to all users of the golf course. The topography of certain areas of the course is such that caution and prudence must be shown by the user of a buggy. Moreover, the Club has to ensure the safety of golfers and others who might be at risk from a mechanically defective ride-on buggy or its careless use. As a result, only buggies serviced and maintained by the Club may be used on the course.

To assist in the safe use of buggies all users shall comply with the following conditions:

  1. Buggies must be operated with the utmost courtesy, care and consideration for the safety and convenience of pedestrians. Pedestrians must be afforded the right-of-way at all times.
  2. No buggy may be operated in excess of 15km per hour. All speed limits must be observed.
  3. Any signs and instructions to warn buggy users of potential danger areas, or areas forbidden to buggies because of concerns about danger or the potential to cause unacceptable wear and tear to the course, must be followed at all times.
  4. Buggies must be operated and parked in such a manner that they do not impede or interfere with normal pedestrian or vehicular flow in the car park and walkways.
  5. Buggies shall be used only in daylight hours.
  6. Buggies owned by the Club must not be taken off Club property. The Club has no responsibility for ensuring the safe operation of buggies on or beyond the confines of the course and the club car-park.
  7. The consumption of alcohol and/or the improper use of drugs when using a buggy is strictly forbidden.
  8. The buggy shall only be used for the number of occupants it was designed to carry and only by people who are authorised to use it.
  9. Buggy users are responsible for the security of ignition keys.
  10. The Club will accept no responsibility for any loss or damage caused to any property other than that arising from the negligent use of a buggy by their servants or agents.

Safe Working Practice

BEFORE USE
All buggy users must sign a Safety Policy Acknowledgement form before they are allowed to drive the buggy. Any person so doing is deemed to have the knowledge, training and skill to operate the vehicle safely and to be fully accountable for their actions and the consequences thereof.

DURING USE

  • Do not move off until the occupants are seated.
  • Always remain seated and hold on while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Hands, feet and head must be kept inside the buggy at all times while the vehicle is in motion.

  • The vehicle must never be driven on tees, greens or the slopes leading up to them.
  • The vehicle must not be used within 2 metres of any bunkers, ditches or ponds or slopes leading to them except when using the designated bridges.
  • Keep to the mown path when driving down the slope on the 4th hole.
  • Check the area behind the vehicle before reversing. Set the parking brake before leaving the vehicle.
  • Always consider the terrain, existing vehicular and pedestrian traffic conditions as well as environmental factors that may affect your ability to operate the vehicle safely.
  • Drive the vehicle only as fast as the terrain and safety considerations allow to avoid tipping over and drive straight up and down severe slopes.
  • Slow down before corners and when crossing bridges and all turns must be executed at reduced speeds.
  • Avoid sudden stops or changes of direction that may result in loss of control.
  • Be extra careful when the course is wet and muddy.
