Staff and member Safety

With increase playing numbers please be aware to minimise risk on course;

Ground staff have right of way- if a golfer sees a ground staff member working they must wait before playing until they are out of range or signal to hit.

We roster groundstaff accordingly to minimise interference on main comp days or work early morning.

As with other golfers never hit if unsafe to do so.
