As members will be aware, the Heat Policy was revised and published to members on 17th December 2019. It was put into effect twice in the first week following the publication of the new policy and we were able to test the new practice of "closing" the golf course.
Whilst we thankfully had no heat related member incidents, it was apparent that there were issues due to closing the course entirely- i.e. the scenario where a member wanted to play golf early in acceptable temperatures, but was unable to do so.
As such a revision to the policy has been agreed- the key difference is to allow morning play, but retain the right to blow the siren and suspend play if necessary.
