Health and Safety
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS, PLEASE BE ADVISED:
FOG & LIGHTNING
In the event of an electrical storm, suspend play immediately & taken appropriate action. (Rule 6-8a applies). Shelters do not provide adequate protection from lightning. Do not continue play in fog/poor visibility, when you cannot see the clear distance of your intended shot
Have priority at all times. Players should always alert greens staff nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them and wait for staff to move out of range.
Paths run alongside and cross several holes on the course. Priority must be given to members of the public. Players must not play shots until footpaths in range are clear.
Two of our holes (numbers 6 & 7) run alongside neighbouring housing. It is important for all golfers (members and visitors alike) to understand that they must beware of any shots they hit to the right of both of these holes. If a shot is hit to the right players must shout warnings, even if they do not think the shot may enter our neighbours' gardens.
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. Take particular care on slopes and around ditches and deep-sided bunkers
THE COURSE, ITS STEPS AND SURFACES…
…may be slippery when damp or wet. Golfers must ensure to wear appropriate footwear to meet the prevailing conditions. Wherever possible, keep to covered areas of Footpaths & Steps. Take care on steep banks and when entering & leaving deep-sided bunkers.
There are ponds across the course. Players are advised not to attempt to retrieve golf balls from ponds. Players enter water hazards at their own risk.

PLAYERS ARE REMINDED OF THE NEED TO SHOUT “FORE!” IF YOU CANNOT SEE THE FULL RANGE OF ANY WAYWARD SHOT ONTO ADJACENT FAIRWAYS OR COURSE BOUNDARIES.
Players should not play until the players in front are out of range.
Players should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like when they make a stroke or practice swing.
If a player plays a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone, they should immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such situations is “FORE!”
On hearing “Fore!” – Crouch, cover your head with your arms and count to 10.
You are advised to carry a mobile phone to summon assistance in an emergency.
