Winter Communication

Information for members regarding the closure of the golf course during the winter season

At Simon’s Golf Club, we are privileged to be able to play the course pretty much all year round, unlike many other courses that close for play or have winter greens.

However, there will be periods when the course is closed due to frost and snow and there will be days when there may be delays due to fog, superficial frost or frost in the greens. We will do our utmost to remain open, and on days where there are delays we will strive to be clear with our communications.

The procedure for these communications is as follows:
Every morning at 07:30 the Pro-Shop will be responsible for updating the website and Golfbox with the following information: (this will show on the splash on the front page of the website and the yellow note in Golfbox).

  • “The course is closed due to frost in the greens”
    • The course is closed ALL DAY
  • ”The course is closed due to superficial frost or frost in the greens. Further information at 09:00” (or relevant time)
    • Weekdays: Times in Golfbox will be deleted during the delay– players will be notified via Golfbox that a new time must be booked if/when the course opens.
    • Weekends: All times will be suspended until the Greenkeepers have approved opening, after which the Starter will allocate all times in the order that they have been booked for the day – this will take place on all 3 loops to ensure play is commenced as quickly as possible (1 hour delay can be caught up in 20 minutes, so be ready at the 1st tee when the course opens).
  • “The course is closed due to fog”
    • Weekdays: In the event of a fog delay times in Golfbox will be deleted during the closure. The Greenkeepers will contact the Pro-Shop who will update the website/splash with course opening time once the fog has lifted. Please note on rare occasions this could happen several times in a day.
    • Weekends: All times will be suspended until the Greenkeepers have approved opening, after which the Starter will allocate all times in the order that they have been booked for the day – this will take place on all 3 loops to ensure play is commenced as quickly as possible (1 hour delay can be caught up in 20 minutes, so be ready at the 1st tee when the course opens).

Golfbox warning
When booking times during the winter season, there is a warning in Golfbox that cancellations and delays may occur due to possible snow, frost or fog.

Yours sincerely
