- Be considerate of other golfers. Play with care and enjoy your round.
- Rain checks are issued for:
- Rain and rain delays
- Lightning/severe weather warnings
- Medical emergencies
- Equipment malfunctions/failures
- Rain checks will be issued accordingly:
- 18-hole rain checks are issued on an 18-hole ticket when fewer than four holes are completed.
- 9-hole rain checks are issued on an 18-hole ticket when fewer than 13 holes are completed.
- 9-hole rain checks are issued on a 9-hole ticket when fewer than four holes are completed.
- Staff will inform and encourage the public as soon as lightning is spotted, thunder is heard or city warning sirens are heard:
- The 1st and 10th tees will close immediately. No players will be allowed on the golf course until the all clear is given.
- Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board golf staff will notify players on the golf course that lightning, thunder or severe weather is expected or has been reported or has been seen in the area and request players remove themselves from the golf course. Assistance to vacate the golf course will be provided to those players that request it or as directed by management. Notification/warning will occur starting on hole #18 and hole #9 and move backwards in numerical order through the 1st and 10th tee. For the safety of employees, only one notification/warning will be given to players on the golf course. Management will then remove all employees from the golf course and require them to seek shelter until the all clear is given.
- Players that choose to remain on the golf course and continue to play do so at their own risk.
- The all clear may only be given by golf course management staff or their designated appointee.
- Once the all clear is given, players will be allowed back on to the golf course and shall occupy the same position they had on the golf course prior leaving the golf course. The 1st and 10th tee will re-open and players may begin play. Play will begin based on scheduled tee times prior to the delay.
- Players that choose not to continue play will be given rain checks based on the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board Rain Check Policy listed above or other mutually agreed upon established League/Tournament Agreements.
