Pace of Play

Players are expected to complete their round in 4 hours or less. Ready golf is encouraged and expected when circumstances require. Groups are expected to be conscious of their position on the course at all times and considerate of groups behind them. Groups are asked to respect all staff requests to maintain a proper pace.

Lightning Policy

Applebrook Golf Club is equipped with a state-of-the-art lightning detection system. When the lightning detection system warning siren is sounded, ALL golfers and their caddies on the course MUST immediately seek shelter in an on-course shelter or in the Clubhouse.

If you hear a FAST SIREN, YOU MUST CLEAR THE COURSE AND SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. 

Players/caddies MUST stay in a shelter until an “all clear” signal has been given. 

You will hear an INTERMITTENT SIREN when it is all clear to return to play. Common sense should always prevail, if you hear thunder or see lightning but do not hear the detection system sirens, proceed to the nearest shelter until instructed to resume play. 

There can be NO EXCEPTIONS to this procedure. Storms are potentially life threatening. Caddies have been instructed to follow these procedures and members should not ask them to do otherwise.
