A marker should be a fellow competitor. In the event that the marker is a person other than a fellow competitor, then approval must be sought from the Match Committee for that person to be appointed as marker prior to the competition round played. It is expected that a non-competing marker has held or currently holds an Australian golf handicap.
A protest or dispute in connection with any competition or match results shall be made to the Match Committee or Captain prior to the presentation of trophies on the day on which the disputed matter has risen. Failure to do so will generally result in the initial results being made final.
