Course Safety

Fog & Lightning

In the event of an electrical storm, suspend play immediately and take appropriate action. (Rule 6-8a applies).

Do not commence or continue play in fog/poor visibility, when you cannot see the clear distance of your intended shot.

Public Footpath

Priority must be given to members of the public at all times. Players must not play shots until pedestrians and are out of range.

Greens Staff

Staff working on the course have priority at all times.

Players are expected to wait for staff to acknowledge them and move out of range, BEFORE playing a shot that might endanger them. DO NOT assume a greenkeeper will be able to hear or react to a shout of “FORE!”

The Course, it’s Steps and Surfaces

These may be slippery when damp or wet. Golfers must ensure to wear appropriate footwear to meet the prevailing conditions. Wherever possible, keep to Footpaths & Steps.

Buggies

To ensure the safety of all golf course users, buggy drivers are required to comply with the Club’s Buggy Policy and follow designated buggy routes at all times.

First Aid

Boxes are held in the Office, Pro shop, Bar, Greenkeepers' shed and Half-way House. A defibrillator is located in the main bar.
