GUIDELINES FOR GOLFING MEMBERS AT DGC
1. In our ongoing drive to make our golf course one of the best in the country, the management requests all our members to be part of this exciting journey and to contribute towards the cause. In the recent past we have witnessed instances of golfing indiscipline, poor caddie management and lack of good golfing practices which not only hinders proper maintenance practices but also manifests in rework of effort/additional costs.
2. On its part the management is centrally organizing training for various golf personnel including caddies. Required support from members will go a long way to achieve the desired result. Towards this end, the issues highlighted below need to be implemented on a war footing at all levels.
