WEATHER & SAFETY PROCEDURES
HOOTER/AIR HORN INSTRUCTIONS
In the event of weather conditions arising that might put the safety of players and green keeping staff at risk, an air horn will be sounded. It will be either:
One prolonged note of the siren to: DISCONTINUE PLAY IMMEDIATELY
Three consecutive notes of the siren to: DISCONTINUE PLAY (BUT YOU MAY PLAY OUT THE HOLE)
Upon hearing the air horn players are required to stop play at the appropriate time, mark their ball and leave the course or take appropriate shelter.
In the case of thunder & lightning a common sense approach is required. If players are in any doubt as to their personal safety they should not wait for the air horn to sound but simply mark their ball and leave the course or take appropriate shelter.
The signal TO RECOMMENCE PLAY will be TWO SHORT NOTES of the siren, repeated.
If play cannot be resumed within a period of 90 minutes during club competitions players will be advised of the course of action by a club member / member of staff travelling in a buggy.
