Safety Policy

At the Port Hope Golf & Country Club, we are committed to the prevention of golf ball injuries while fostering good relations between customers and on-course staff. We need your help to ensure a safe environment for you to enjoy and for our workers who maintain the golf course.

Employee Safety and You

On the golf course, maintenance equipment and workers have the right-of-way.

When maintenance equipment and workers are in the range of your next shot, these are the procedures you need to know:

Our on-course staff begins working early in the morning and they are committed to providing a quality product for your golfing enjoyment. But, in order to accomplish this task, our maintenance staff needs to work efficiently and stay ahead of the players.

If you are an early morning golfer,you may encounter our staff mowing the greens, tees, collars, fairways or rough and changing the flagstick location for the day or raking the bunkers.

We ask that you have some patience, wait a few moments, let us finish our task and move out of the way.

The maintenance person will wave his/her hand to acknowledge that he/she sees you, he/she will then complete their immediate task and move out of the way and stop their machine. They will then wave their hand again to allow you to play your shot.

Do not skip holes when playing. We have tried to develop a mowing routine to help keep the maintenance staff always working ahead of the golfer. If a group skips holes they will interfere with the maintenance staff as they are trying to finish their tasks.

Remember do not hit your shot if the maintenance person has not acknowledged you and moved out of the way.
