As the rain pours down and the temperatures drop below freezing it makes the golf course quite a hazardous place.

Puddling and icy conditions make the course very slippery and you should avoid uneven areas.

All members and their guests playing at this time of year should take extra care as not to slip.

Summer hybrid golf shoes are particularly bad and players should make sure they have the correct equipment for the conditions.

Many thanks, enjoy responsibly and please follow the ropes as they are there for your safety as well as protecting worn areas of the course.
