  • Depending on the storm's severity, you should either shelter on the course as best as possible or make your way back to the clubhouse in the event of a severe storm.

For your safety, please note the following:

  • Do not use your umbrella

  • Return all clubs to your bag

  • If possible, lay your bag (and trolley) on the floor

  • Stand well clear of your bag
