Dear Members / Property Owners,
Desert Springs is pleased to announce that since the successful introduction of the Course Marshall’s in May 2013, that it has now increased the total number to eight.
Desert Springs Golf Club Marshall’s
Between 30th June to 14th September, when both the Golf Clubhouse Reception and Caddy Master Office close at 19.00 hrs. and 19.30 hrs. respectively, a Marshal will be patrolling the Golf Course through to 21:00 hrs.
The principal duties of the Marshall’s are to provide assistance to players where and when necessary, control the activity on the course, ensure that the ‘Pace of Play’ is maintained and to cater for those golfers that will be returning rental equipment; Golf buggies, electric trolleys, pull trolleys and rental sets at times when the Caddy Master Office is closed.
The Marshall’s are instructed to control the tickets of all golf players on the golf course and as such we ask you to please remember to check-in at the Golf Reception in the normal manner before your tee time and to keep your ticket with you during your round.
Historically during the summer season, we have experienced families taking walks down the fairways during playing hours, persons walking dogs on and fouling the course, cyclists riding down cart tracks, persons extracting balls from water features and elsewhere, golfers using the course for practice and starting rounds elsewhere than on the first tee etc.
The problems this can cause are obvious: Starting with safety and the extreme risk involved in certain of these activities. There is also the gradual increase in disruption and prejudice to the golfing experience and from the point of view of the Club there is the subtle erosion of its control over its own major asset and its dedication and use for its intended purpose.
To date all golfers have welcomed the introduction of the Golf Course Marshall’s and the service they provide and we are confident that the increase in their numbers is going to greatly assist in the prevention of the aforementioned matters previously experienced and contribute towards enhancing the enjoyment of each golfers experience on the Indiana course.
Lastly, we are pleased to announce that after undergoing a full refurbishment, ‘The 19th Hole Refreshment’ buggy is now back in pristine condition and operating on the golf course providing cold drinks and snacks to all golfers on The Indiana Course!
