EVERYONE PLEASE READ!
August tournament was played under the difficult conditions of
“Lightning” at all of the four tournament sites.
IF YOU THE PLAYER FEEL THREATENED BY LIGHTNING YOU MAY STOP PLAY
AND TAKE COVER AS YOU FEEL IT’S NECESSARY.
SLOW PLAY RULES ARE WAIVED! NO
ONE WILL BE PENALIZED!
the A & B Division sites, play was stopped by a number of the groups
on the course. It’s best to stop as a group, however, if you are the
only one who wishes to stop and take cover, you “may” do so. Do not expect the golf course to give good guidance as to
warnings, etc. You must take
charge of your own safety.
