As of Saturday 6th January 2018, all play at NWGC from the fairways will be from winter mats in order to preserve the course. Use of winter mats provides players with the added benefit of playing from a fairway location after hitting a great drive rather than placing in the rough. Mats are compulsory for all play on the course including Winter Competitions as well as general winter play. Winter rules are in place to help preventing divots & scarring on fairways until environmental conditions are favourable for growth. You must place the mat within 6″ of your ball that has come to rest on the fairway and then play your shot from this location. The mats are only to be used when your ball comes to rest on a fairway. Normal “NWGC local winter rules” apply to all other shots from fringe, rough throughout…
