BUGGY POLICIES

Use of buggies (ride on motorised vehicles) in Huntswood Golf Club Competitions.

All Huntswood Golf Club Competitions are classed as “walking” competitions (unless stated otherwise by the presiding competition organizer/officer of the day) and thus the use of buggies is not allowed for competitors – apart from those players who have submitted a written medical request for the need to use a buggy to participate in the game – whom Huntswood Golf Club will continue to support.
Only in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion and agreement of the Captain/Officer of the day, will the use of a buggy be allowed for any player who has not submitted a written medical statement

Use of Buggy parked on 10th Tee

In all competitions the use of the buggy parked on the 10th Tee (when available) is allowed by all players, exclusively for transportation to and from the Clubhouse to use the facilities provided.

Buggy Policy Update

It is important that we conserve the course at Huntswood especially during the Winter months and more importantly for the safety of players, we will therefore be unable to permit buggy use when conditions are bad. It is advisable if you usually use a buggy to call the Pro Shop ahead on the day for more information as to whether buggies are permitted to be taken out. If you require a buggy for medical reasons we will endeavour to ensure, where possible, you continue to do so unless it’s in relation to your safety or when the conditions require the course to be closed. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
