Short Game Area

Chipping and Bunker practise at your fingertips

The short game area was opened on Wednesday 29th July for play and was designed by course architect Brian Noble, constructed by Neil McLoughlin's team and adds another excellent feature to our Deeside Golf Club facilities.

In order to ensure we can all enjoy the new facility, we have developed a simple list of do's & don'ts. These will help protect the new green, surrounds and bunkers.

Your support in following these rules is appreciated, as they will help the short game area to mature and add to our wonderful facilities here at Deeside.

Please encourage fellow members to follow these rules as they are there for everyone's benefit.

  • No pitching
  • Replace all pins in the holes
  • The area has been designed for chipping, pitching and bunker play only.
  • The maximum length of shot should be no more than 10 yards, there will be markings and signs to provide indication.
  • The driving range should be utilised for the practise of longer shots.
  • The existing putting green at the club house should be used to practise putting.
  • Although it's a practise facility, it still needs to be treated the same as our golf courses. Please rake the bunkers after use and replace divots.
  • Remain aware of the golf club access road when practicing.
  • You can utilise your own golf balls, range balls should not be used.
  • There is no defined limit to the number of golfers who can practise at any one time, although please apply common sense with this.
  • Be reasonable as to how long you practise if there are others waiting to play.
  • On medal days, priority should be given to those wishing to practise before playing in the competition.
  • Replace divots.
