Summer Fun: Playing it Safe on the Golf Course

Summer Fun: Playing it Safe on the Golf CourseAs summer steadily approaches and the weather warms up, tourists and locals alike are starting to flock to every beach, pool, and golf course around. As much as we all look forward to this time of year for the sun, sand, and sports, this is just as good of a time to make sure your CT Golf Cart Insurance is ready to go when you are. In order to fully enjoy your summer shenanigans, here are some tips on how to avoid problems on your local golf course:

  1. Drive Safely- This may seem trivial, but following safety regulations assures you won’t damage your cart. Avoid steep hills and slow for sharp curves. Lastly, keep an eye out for other drivers and avoid driving on rough terrain. Although it may seem entertaining, your golf cart was not made for off-roading!
  2. Beware Thunder & Lightning storms- Summer showers can be quite fun, but bear in mind that the metal on both the golf cart and the golf clubs makes it extremely dangerous. About Health reminds you not to take shelter under a tree if a storm approaches, as they are lightning rods when struck. Instead, find a designated lightning shelter on the course. Use the Flash-to-Bang method to determine how far the lightning strike is from you. After the initial lightning strike, count how many seconds it takes for you to hear the roar of thunder. If your answer is 30 seconds or less, it is recommended you take shelter immediately to avoid being harmed. Once inside, you should not resume your game until at least 30 minutes after the last audible thunder.
  3. Stay Hydrated- Bringing plenty of water with you on the course is your best bet for not suffering from dehydration and fatigue. There are always beverages available at your clubhouse, as well. Don’t let the summer heat get the best of you!
  4. Heads Up! – Watch out for flying balls overhead. Stay aware of your surroundings and don’t forget to yell “Fore!” if you think your ball might potentially harm another player.
