As golf is frequently played on the Common, walkers must make themselves aware of teeing off areas and the directions that golf balls will be coming from. The direction of play is shown on the map.  

Please be polite and wait for golfers who are just about to tee off as there have been incidents in the past of walkers and dogs being hit by flying golf balls.

Any incidents of abusive language or behaviour will not be tolerated and should be reported to the clerk of the common or the Rushmere Golf Club.

The Rushmere Golf Club has a drinks licence and is open to the general public as well as its members. It also serves food including daily specials, snacks and full meals, which are all freshly prepared. To find out more information about this and about the Golf club in general, please visit their website,
