NOTE

Safety Guidance in the Event of a Dangerous Situation (normally an electrical storm)The following guidance is taken from the England Golf “Hard Card”. It is designed to assist; it is not an instruction or a Term of Competition. People on the course are responsible for their own actions in such a dangerous situation and BLCGL is not liable for any injury or damage caused by following this guidance. When the warning klaxon is sounded to suspend play for a dangerous situation you are advised:

  • Not to stand under overhead power lines.
  • Not to shelter under trees or on high ground
  • Not to take cover in wooden or metallic shelters, unless the shelter is fully enclosed and properly earthed.
  • Not to exit the course by walking under trees if at all possible.
  • To keep as low as possible and, if necessary, crouch in the nearest bunker or other low point on the golf course.
  • To switch off and most certainly do not use a mobile phone unless it is clearly safe to do so.
  • Not to put up your umbrella under any circumstances.
  • Not to stand near your golf clubs; they act as a magnet to lightning. (If you are leaving the course, you are strongly advised to leave your clubs behind).
  • To remove any headgear which may have metal in or on it, for example ball marker magnets or cap buttons.
