Farnham Golf Club Safety Notice

For all golfers at Farnham Golf Club.

In addition to following the R&A Rules of Golf all golfers must:

  • Obey erected signage and be aware of other players and green keeping staff on the course at all times.
  • Report to the club management any incident where you, another player or green keeping staff have suffered injury.
  • Report to the club management any near misses.
  • Notify the club management or the pro shop of any medical conditions which may affect your abilities while playing.
  • Discontinue play if there is a risk of lightning.
  • Our green keeping staff work on the Course when play is in progress. Please ensure that they are aware of you and that they have acknowledged your presence before playing close to them.
  • We have a comprehensive Practice Area situated off Sands Road, a Short Game warm-up area close to the 2nd hole and a warm-up Putting Green adjacent to the 1stTee. Practice is prohibited on the course.
  • Holes 5, 6 and 7 form a challenging combination of holes. Special care is needed when golfers or green keeping staff are present on these holes or at the tee box of hole 9.
  • Hole 9 has restricted views from the tee and there is a call-up bell; you should not drive off until you are sure it is safe or you hear the call-up bell.
  • Before playing holes 17 and 18 please ensure the footpath to right hand side is clear of walkers. The barrier along the course is erected to prevent falls and not to protect against golf balls in flight.

This information identifies some of the hazards that members and visitors to Farnham Golf Club may encounter while playing or practising. It is not a definitive list of hazards, and by the very nature of the game of golf, it is impossible to eliminate risk entirely. A more complete set of assessments can be found in a printed form the Club office and Pro-Shop. For your own safety we advise you to read this document.

"At Farnham Golf Club we are always looking to improve your golfing experience. Please let us know if you have any suggestions on our course safety. Feedback can be provided in the Player Comments book in the Clubhouse."

Alasdair Hay, General Manager, April 2014
