North Hants Golf Club

Starting Matrix 

With the exception of Matches and Competitions, the Club does not operate a pre-booking system.

There is a ball-chute on the 1st and 10th tees and a ball may be placed in the chute only when all players in the match are on the putting green (1st tee) or at the Halfway Hut (10th tee) and ready to play.

Unless specific tee reservations are operative, either for a major event/society or with the approval of the General Manager, all starting must adhere to the approved matrix. This matrix will be clearly published and communicated on the course information board and on the website and notice boards.

The clock on the information sign adjacent to the first tee is designated the official starting clock. 

No play is allowed before 8am.

The last group to tee off before times change must do so early enough for players to clear the green in time for the next time phase to start.


The Matrix will be suspended during Men's and Ladies Competition Start Times.

Any player failing to adhere to the starting matrix times will have no standing on the course and may be asked to leave.  At no time may players start at the 13th tee, except when designated in certain competitions. Members playing directly behind all regular competitions should leave one clear hole between their group and the last group of the competition.


The rule of alternation between matches starting their round and those who have already played 9 holes applies. Those waiting to start their rounds on 1st and 10th tees must give way to those putting-out on 9th or 18th greens and intending to play on. The group having given way will then take precedence on the tee. Players waiting to start their round must give priority to any Members who are half way round and playing in a Club Match or Club Competition.
