Purley Downs Golf Club

Current Tee Times

Starting times as from 1st January 2024 below: 

Please scroll to the bottom and bear in mind the points below the start time graphic.

The 1st and the 10th tees are the only tees that can be used to start from.

• The times have been established based on playing times of 3 hours for 2 balls, and 4 hours for 3/4 balls.

Please try to maintain this pace of play so as not to negatively impact other golfers.

• If you lose ground to the group in front, please remember basic etiquette and let any following group through. This should be done even if you are

playing a match.

One balls have no standing on the course and must stand aside if groups are behind.

• You will note that there are ‘Dead Starting Times’ when no starting is permitted.

To avoid disappointment please check the club diary for any pre-arranged fixtures before arriving at the club.

On arrival - Ball Chute Procedure

Ball chutes can be found by the 1st and 10th tee – check what tee your group size should be starting from.

A golf ball can be placed in the chute when one of the 2/3/4 ball has arrived at the course. One ball per group only. An individual cannot place multiple

balls for multiple groups. The ball in the chute should have players initial or unique identifying mark on it.

Players are not obliged to stay around the chute. They may avail themselves of any facility at the club. However, if all the players are not there when

their ball is next in line in the chute, the ball will be placed at the back of the ball queue by the players who already have a ball in the chute.

Anyone playing an official county knockout has automatic priority on either tee.

Teeing Off

Games on the tee waiting to start will interweave with games that are halfway through their round. One game from the ball chute, then one game starting

their back 9, so on and so forth.

If a game halfway through their round is on the 18th green and there is a game on the 1st tee, the game coming off 18 will have priority to tee off the 1st tee.

The same rule applies for the 9th green/10th tee if there is a game on the 10th fairway.

2 balls, having started at the correct time, from the correct tee, have priority on the course, so please let them through, even if you have not lost ground on

the group in front.

If you have not started your game within the time zones printed for each tee, you will have to wait until the next available tee time for your group size, this

may mean starting at the other tee and taking your turn in that tee’s ball chute.
