HARVEY GOLF CLUB INC. EXTREME WEATHER POLICY
The Harvey Golf Club Extreme Weather Policy has been introduced to reduce the risk of related injury to Members and Guests and to provide guidance in relation to playing conditions in the event of extreme conditions. Extreme weather may include but not limited to heat, thunder and lightning, wet conditions, fog, wind and smoke.
Suspension of Play
In the event of extreme weather conditions, play will be suspended with the decision to suspend play made by representatives of the Match Committee or Captain of the day who shall determine the suspension of play.
In unsafe conditions players should return to the Clubhouse until further notice is provided.
Resumption of Play
Play will only resume when representatives of the Match Committee have assessed the conditions that caused play to be suspended and deemed them suitable for further play. In the absence of the Match Committee, the Captain of the day shall determine the suitability of play.
Abandonment of Play
In the event of extreme conditions, play will be abandoned with the decision to abandon play made by representatives of the Match Committee. In the absence of the Match Committee the Captain of the day shall determine the abandonment of play.
Players should cease play and return to the Clubhouse.
Thunder and Lightning
The following procedure will be applied at Harvey Golf Club during Club competitions in accordance with Rule 6-8(a).
Discontinuance of Play due to Thunder and/or Lightning
In the case of lightning, a player must discontinue play immediately if he believes there is danger from lightning, by marking his ball, and returning to the Clubhouse, without reference to the Match Committee under Rule 6-8(a) (ii) and representatives of the Match Committee or Captain of the day should be notified. Play is not officially suspended until players are notified in person. Play will resume when the conditions have been assessed and deemed suitable for further play.
The assessment of lightning conditions is to be monitored with the aid of a recognised lightning detection device by Match Committee with reference to information provided by the Bureau of Meterology.
Casual Water Interference
In the event of players approaching a green which is considered unplayable due to casual water, they are required to contact a Match Committee member of Captain of the day to advise them of the condition of the green so that an inspection can be undertaken by representatives of the Match Committee or Captain to determine the condition of the green.
The assessment of unplayable conditions is when no relief can be sought on the green, impeding the player from holing the ball. If the green is deemed to be unplayable play will be suspended. Play will resume following an assessment of the condition of the course and when deemed suitable for further play.
In the event of other extreme weather conditions, including but not limited to fog, wind and smoke, the decision to suspend, abandon or resume play will be in accordance with the procedures as set out in this policy.
In the event of extreme conditions that necessitate the immediate evacuation of the course, play will be abandoned with the decision to abandon play made by representatives of the Match Committee or Captain of the day who shall determine the abandonment of play.
