In such times be very careful on paths and steps and avoid walking on steep banks.
In serious and adverse weather conditions such as thunder, lightning and/or torrential rain, the course will be closed at the discretion of the Director of Golf, Club Secretary or other member of the management team.
The signal for the course being closed will be a klaxon sounded for a continued period of time. ALL golfers MUST evacuate the course as quickly as possible. The course will be re-opened again on the instruction of the Director of Golf or Club Secretary, when all perceived danger has passed.
If the bunker on the left hand side of the 1st fairway is not visible from the white tee, or the flag at the top of the practice ground is not visible from the pro shop, then you must not commence play. In the event of worsening fog while on the golf course the decision whether to stop play lies with the golfers who should apply a judgement on the dangers to themselves, other players, staff and walkers of playing a given shot and, if in any doubt whatsoever, they should cease play until conditions improve.
Although the green keeping staff endeavour to fill in animal holes, please be aware that there will always be some on the course and take care where you are walking.
Several of our tee boxes are raised and access is via steps. Please use the steps to avoid wearing away the banks, but take care to walk only on the tread mats and do not step on the bare wooden sleepers which can be very slippery when wet or icy.
Watch out for members of the public at all times as they may not be aware of the layout of the course or where they should be looking. Before taking practice swings, position yourself well away from and facing towards your fellow players. Do not play until those in front or members of the public are out of range. Instead, take a minute or two to admire the scenery. Shout ‘fore!’ if you believe a wayward shot of yourself or a playing partner may hit another player or member of the public.
It is the duty of members and their guests and visiting players to report any injuries sustained or near misses, or dangerous occurrences. In this way, the club can actively work on accident prevention. A logbook is kept in the pro-shop.
