All participants are permitted to use sky caddie/laser range finders/ GPS devices to measure distances. These devices may not be used for any other reason other than to measure distance (e.g. slope or elevation change).
These devices will not be provided to participants, if participants use these devices it is as a personal device. Course marshals will be on-hand to monitor the proper use of these devices.

Phone Policy
Phones may be used for measuring devices and GPS apps only. Talking and Texting will not be permitted (unless during a medical emergency). If used for any other reason than as a measuring device, phones will be confiscated. Course marshals will be on-hand to monitor the proper use of phones on the courses.

Spectator Policy
Parents and Coaches must maintain a 30 yd distance from players during the course of play, except around the greens where spectators must maintain a 10 yd distance from players. Spectators may not communicate with players, unless there is a medical situation.
Spectators may assist with finding lost golf balls during the course of play. Spectators are not to communicate, coach or speak with players during the search for golf balls. Spectators must wait until players arrive at the area where the ball has strayed to begin searching for balls. This policy has been enacted to assist the pace of play on the course.

All participants will be reminded to watch for acts of sportsmanship throughout the day on Monday, September 26th and Tuesday September 27th. After signing their scorecard they will have an opportunity to submit a nomination form. This nomination form would include the players name and brief description of what they did.

Lightning Safety:
The warning system for any lightning in the area will be 1 long blast of an air horn. Play is suspended immediately, players are to mark and leave their ball and all persons are to return to the Clubhouse as quickly as possible. Players will wait at the Clubhouse for further instructions to return to their playing position. When players return, a single blast of the horn will indicate safe conditions for golf and play will continue.
Injury or Heart Attack:
The threat of a player being struck by an object on the course is a real threat. If an object does come in contact with a player while on the course they will be assessed and one of the following actions will be taken:

  1. The marshal will be called and minor first aid will be administered with their first aid kits.
  2. The player will be taken to the clubhouse for further first aid with more supplies available.
  3. Emergency Services will be called immediately and the player will only be comforted and not moved until they arrive.

In the event of a Heart Attack there is an AED in the Pro Shop which will be used if the scenario is deemed necessary by one of the Pro Shop staff.
Fire or Severe Damage to Golf Course Buildingsand/or Banquet Facility:
In the event of a fire or alarm all patrons of the building will be directed by one of the staff to the designated exit which is safest to exit. Once outside, patrons will then proceed to a muster point until emergency services have been called and deemed it safe to re-enter the building.
