FOG - COURSE POLICY
The Club has a ‘duty of care’ to members and staff who are working on the course in such conditions and cannot be seen by golfers. Whilst I am aware that visibility may vary around the course on such occasions, I have actioned the following policy:
If the left fairway bunker cannot be seen from the 1st tee, the Starter will alert the Course Manager, who will close the course. As soon as the fog lifts, the golf course will be opened for play.
If play is in progress and fog descends, one long sounding of the siren will confirm that play is suspended. The Course Manager, in discussion with the Starter, will be responsible for making such a decision, in his absence, the Club Secretary followed by the Head Professional. The opening of the course will be confirmed by two long soundings of the siren.
