The Club has two defibrillators:


  1. Located on the outside wall of the Pro Shop (a sign indicates its whereabouts)
  2. In the hut adjacent to the 11th Tee), (a sign on the door indicates its location)



When playing on the course in bad weather, in the event of a thunderstorm with or without lightning, common sense dictates that play in these circumstances must be discontinued in the interest of safety.

If there is an imminent risk of lightning, play must be discontinued


Even if the course status is Open, in the event of fog and ice common sense must be used.

Players have a duty of care not to behave in such a way that others may be injured by their actions. They also have a duty to take care not to injure themselves.

If conditions are foggy, or you are unable to see where the ball is likely to land, (being able to see the 1st green from the 1st tee is a good indicator) or ground conditions are such that it is impossible to judge how far the ball is likely to travel, do not play.

Playing in such conditions is dangerous – Players would do so at their own risk


It is the responsibility of Members and Visitors to comply with the Emergency and Fire Procedures / Exits as detailed on notices and signs displayed in the Clubhouse

In the case of evacuation of the Clubhouse, please go to the Assembly Point at the far end of the car park adjacent to the 15th Tee.
