COURSE INFORMATION & POLICIES
COURSE CLOSING HOURS
The closing time at all GolfNorth courses is contingent on when it gets dark, extreme weather, or when the last group is off the course, whichever occurs first. If players are likely to finish the round prior to dark, then play/cart rental is not denied. We do however encourage all players to be off the course prior to darkness to prevent an accident or injury. Subject to Covid 19 government regulations, Lounges do not close unless there are fewer than 12 players remaining on the course and Pro Shops do not close until all groups are off the course.

• Air in a lightning strike can be heated up to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The rapid heating of the air is what produces the shockwave that results in thunder.
• Lightning often strikes outside of heavy rain and may occur as far as 16 kilometers away from any rainfall.
• Most lightning incidents occur when people are caught outdoors in the summer months during the afternoon and evening (between 2:00-6:00 p.m.).
• A ground strike can produce somewhere between 100 million to one billion volts of electricity.
• The length of a cloud-to-ground lightning strike can range from two miles to 10.
Be sure to follow these suggestions to keep yourself safe during the summer months while enjoying your round of golf!
Lightning has a very high probability of killing you immediately should you be struck by it while holding a golf club in your hand. A golf club is effectively a mini lightning rod. It is fundamentally important that you know what to do when you are on the golf course and lightning is in the area.
If lightning strikes, get off the course immediately!
If you see lightning or hear thunder, even in the distance, get off the course immediately. Weather cells and thunderstorms bearing lightning may move incredibly quick at times. Before you know it, storms may be right on top of you, catching you unprepared. If you see trouble, get off the golf course instantly.
Learn the 30-30 rule:
• Take appropriate shelter when you can count 30 seconds or less between lightning and thunder.
• Remain sheltered for 30 minutes after you last hear thunder.
If you are in a group in the open spread out, keeping people several yards apart.
Stay away from objects that conduct electricity, such as golf clubs, metal fences, golf carts. Contrary to what some people believe, a golf cart does not offer protection.
Avoid being the highest point in an open area. Swinging a golf club or holding an umbrella (metal or graphite) can make you the tallest object and a target for lightning. Seek shelter in low-lying areas such as valleys, ditches and depressions but be aware of flooding.
Find a dense wooded area: If you are far from shelter, find a dense wooded area. Don’t seek refuge under a lone tree. That’s extremely dangerous. Thickets of short trees, on the other hand, are relatively safe. Seek shelter in a low-lying area under a thick growth of small trees or bushes. Crouch down away from tree trunks.
Download a reliable weather/radar app. Having reliable radar with you at all times, equipped with a lighting detection/prediction mode, is something everyone should have on their phones. Most of these types of apps have a radius of 16 kilometers (some more, some less) from your current location that is outlined on the radar. This is so you can tell how close the approaching storm, or more importantly, the last lightning strike was. Remember, the rain won’t kill you, but the lightning could, so don’t focus on the radar as much as the lightning strikes. Have your own “personal radius” for when the bolts get too close. Sixteen kilometers is ideal just to be safe.
