Number Of Players Per Side
The league would like to remind all captains that any games cancelled due to any Football World Cup matches this summer will result in the forfeit of the match & points to the opposing team.
League Winners V ROL match
1 week prior to the fixture date the host club will send out an email reminder to all of the league clubs. The clubs should then confirm receipt of the reminder.
Club representative non attendance at the League Winners V ROL match.
For each representative that does not attend, the club will be deducted 1 point from the TVL league points for the coming season (maximum of 2 points).
New Local Rule Where Implemented By The Club
Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced."
Non-Fulfilment Of Match
There will also be a £25 fine for a team not fulfilling their fixture for whatever reason they pull out.
Re-arranging League Matches
This is not allowed & the match points are forfeited by the team at fault for the cancellation.
Calling Off A Match In Progress
This applies if the course is closed during the match & is usually indicated by a siren or flair. Alternatively it can be a joint decision by both captains. In these circumstances both teams will be awarded 1 point each.
Cancelling of match food
Any post match food requirement changes must be notified to the home team by the Thursday evening immediately prior to the match. Specifically if food is not required for all the away team this must be notified to the home team as above. Failure to do so will incur a charge of £5 per head for the food not required.
Clarification Of Lady Player's Tees & Car/Stroke Indexes
Ladies play from the ladies tees but use the men's card & stroke indexes.

In the event of this occurring the individual match is forfeited by the side fielding the single player.
