Fog, Frost and Heavy Rain

This time of year fog and frost are normal weather conditions.

They are potentially dangerous conditions whilst playing golf.



In the event of foggy conditions, members and guests MUST NOT commence their round until authorised by the Golf Shop whose decision is final.


Playing golf in frosty conditions can cause lasting damage to the playing surfaces. Therefore, when frost is evident, the Head Greenkeeper will delay play until the temperature has risen to a level that will allow a satisfactory thaw to take place, thereby reducing the possibility of damage to the grasses. His decision is final.

Members and guests are also advised to take care when walking up frosty steps to teeing grounds and on pathways, sidehill lies and slopes.

Heavy Rain / Wet Weather

In the event of heavy rain or severe wet weather, we advise all golfers to contact the golf shop before coming to play and before play commences to check the status of the course. In this unlikely event, the courses will be temporarily closed and play suspended.

If golfers miss their tee-time as a result of the course being closed due to fog and frost, reasonable endeavours will be made to re-schedule either later that day or the following day depending on availability.

Management will take any breaches of the above safety information very seriously.
