It's that time of year that lightning delays become more frequent and we rely on the ThorGuard lightning detection/prediction system to signal suspension and resumption of golf play. Please see our club rule regarding our lightning prediction system at the bottom of this post

Club rule: Players will be warned by our lightning prediction system which sounds one prolonged blast of the horn signaling suspension of all play. All players must leave their respective holes and either return to the clubhouse or go to an appropriate shelter. Resumption of play is signaled by three consecutive five-second blasts of the horns. It is also emphasized to all players to stop play at any time they believe lightning threatens their safety – even if a signal has not yet sounded.
