Winter Golf at Mapperley


Winter Rules are in place at Mapperley until 31st March 2022. 

Unless otherwise stated for a specific competition, Winter Rules include:

  • Preferred lies in parts of the General Area cut to fairway height or less.
  • Preferred lies in bunkers (the area may be smoothed before placing)
  • Compulsory drop when a ball comes to rest on a tee or temporary green
  • The Alternative to Stroke & Distance local rule for a Lost Ball or Ball Out of Bounds

You can view the full Winter Rules on the noticeboards in the locker rooms or by clicking here


Unless otherwise stated, the submission of scores for handicap purposes at Mapperley is not available when Winter Rules are in place. The option to submit General Play Scores at Mapperley through the England Golf app will be switched off until next April. 


It is intended to continue playing non-qualifying midweek stableford competitions on Thursdays for the time being, subject to demand. 

Please note that in multi-tee stableford competitions during the Winter, no adjustment of mens Playing Handicaps is required. This is because the Par is 2 greater than the Course Rating, hence 38 points represents playing to handicap from both mens yellow and ladies red tees. 

Adjustments to ladies Playing Handicaps in multi-tee Medal competitions, including Texas Scrambles, are still applicable because these are based on the difference in the Course Ratings of the two sets of tees.
