In the event of adverse weather making commencement of medal play impossible, or the course is unplayable because of rain; there will be a rolling suspension of play. When the starter/ professional considers the course playable, players will go off in order as per the start sheet. If a player considers the delay excessive, they have the option of scratching from the competition or arranging a tee time later in the day.
If play has not commenced 90 minutes after the original first tee time, play in that round of the competition will be cancelled for the day.
If after play has commenced and adverse weather makes the course unplayable, play will be suspended by three consecutive notes of the siren. If play has not resumed within 1 hour, the following will apply:-
If the competition is to be played over 18 holes and all (or over 90%) of the entered players have not completed their round, the competition will be cancelled and reduction only scoring applied.
