Ready Golf:

The Match Committee has introduced the concept of Ready Golf at Camberwell. The intent is to speed up the game by eliminating as much waiting time as possible.

When it is safe to do so, and is clear in front, the first player ready may hit off.

Whilst observing proper etiquette, the player who is ready first may putt first and finish out


Golf Carts

Golf carts may be used in competition rounds with the permission of the Match Committee.

Use in major events will only be allowed if players request permission prior to the competition date, a doctors’ certificate may be requested.

Players 70 years and over are automatically authorized to use a golf cart.

NB. Members are permitted to use motorised golf carts free of charge. However, these carts may not be lent to other members or carry passengers under any circumstances.


We welcome guests to participate in all club events, provided they have an official handicap and pay a competition fee. Whilst guests are eligible to win daily prizes, they are not eligible for specific member events such as Order of Merit, Eclectic, Club Championships etc.

The same guest may only play five times in any twelve-month period, otherwise they must join the Club.

All events are Men’s events unless otherwise stated, e.g., mixed events apply on Mondays.


Annual subscriptions are due by 30th September of each year. If fees are not paid by the 30th November, membership will cease.

All prizes are determined by the Match Committee and subject to change at any time.

Extreme weather conditions / course temporarily unplayable

The Committee will take necessary steps to cancel any round or event prior to play commencing and provide early notice wherever possible.


As the course is controlled by the Pro Shop, players are advised that it is impossible for the Committee to suspend play during any particular event once it has started. It is therefore the player’s responsibility to choose to participate in the event.

During Extreme Weather Conditions:
  • Members on course may take shelter on the course for a limited time (30 minutes maximum)
  • Members booked to play may amend their tee time with the permission of the Captain/Pro Shop

Failure to complete the round will disqualify a player from the competition.

Other related matters:

  • Players must generally comply with booked Tee Times
  • A competition is deemed to stand unless more than half the field fails to complete the round, or insufficient players (usually 10 per grade minimum) participate.

Heat Policy

If on the night prior to the competition, the evening news telecasts a weather forecast of 40 degrees or higher for the following day, the scheduled competition will be cancelled.
