May 22, 2019SANDALS . I have recieved a letter from the secretary of the BCGBA to clarify the position. It is not a Law of the game, no puniishment can be applied if a player is found not to be abiding by the lbye-law DURING A GAME.
However, organisers of competitions, green managers, team captians and any other official responsible for matches, SHOULD PREVENT A PLAYER FROM COMMENCING A MATCH IF THEY ARE NOT ABIDING BY THE BYE-LAW. If the player refuses to wear appropriate footwear she must forfeit the game.
