Carts / Bikes
Wet weather decision process
If the Golf Course has received large amounts of rainfall the night prior or days leading into any particular day, at approximately 5.30am each morning, the senior Green Staff member on shift will complete a course inspection to determine if carts/bikes are permitted on the course. When available the Greens Chairman will also attend such inspections.
The guidelines used are as follows:
- Assess the amount of rainfall received the previous day/night or days prior
- Inspect the overall surface water visible on the fairways & light rough
- Review the forecasted weather conditions for the next 24 hours
- The time of year summer/winter is also taken into consideration.
The club’s website will then be updated as soon as decision is made (generally by 6.00am) informing members’ of the daily conditions.
The Green Staff appreciate the impacts not permitting carts/bikes on the course has on certain members and sympathise with their position. They also understand given favourable weather conditions the course can dry out and look fine for carts/bikes by the afternoon, however a decision is required to be made as how they view the course conditions at 5.30am.
The long term interests of the golf course will always be the priority when making such decisions
