ASSUMPTION OF INHERENT RISKS OF INJURY AND YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
Golf and all activities conducted on the Shelburne Golf & Country Club property associated with golf including practicing/training are physical sports. Risks of serious injury are inherent in sport. This requires your constant exercise of caution and prudent judgment.
CHANGING CONDITIONS/INCLEMENT WEATHER
Varying weather conditions affect turf conditions. Always be alert how these conditions will affect your ability to maintain control on all surfaces and adjust accordingly. Inclement weather including lighting can be particularly dangerous on a golf course and, as such, the following procedure must be followed: At the first sign of a storm, whether by sound of thunder or sight of lightning, golfers are required to stop playing immediately and head back in to the Clubhouse for safety. The employees of Clubhouse, at first sign of a storm, will blast an air horn 3 times to alert golfers to stop playing immediately and head to the Clubhouse for safety. So long as it is safe to do so, employees will head out on the shuttle and any other available carts to assist in bringing golfers back to the Clubhouse in a more expedient manner.
Turf surfaces are inherently uneven and can change throughout the season depending upon weather conditions/storms. Exercise caution at all times.
NATURAL AND MAN MADE OBSTACLES
There are many necessary manmade and natural obstacles such as benches, ball washers, tee blocks, yardage markers, cart signs, flagpoles, turf equipment, power carts, bridges, gullies, streams, ponds, trees, falling limbs, burrowing animal holes both on and off the golf course which may cause serious injuries if you were to strike them. The only way to reduce the risk of injury is to use man made obstacles for their intended purpose, follow on-course directional traffic arrows, drive golf carts and golf in control at all times and to stay clear of moving obstacles.
Be aware of other golfers at all times. This includes maintaining a safe distance from other golfers while you and/or they are swinging; watching where shots land; and, calling “fore” should a ball be errant. If your ball is heading toward other golfers shout FORE as loud as you can.
GOLFING IN CONTROL
Any game of golf may result in injury. Golf in control and respect fellow golfers and employees of the Golf Course. Respect all signs, markers and flags. They are for your safety.
IRRESPONSIBLE GOLFING INCLUDING PRACTICE AND TRAINING IS ENDANGERING TO THE SAFETY OF YOURSELF AND OTHERS. BY PURCHASING A GREEN FEE/MEMBERSHIP/LESSON PROGRAM/LESSON, YOU AGREE TO ASSUME THE INHERENT RISKS OF INJURY AND TO GOLF RESPONSIBLY.
