The City of Longmont Golf Courses will no longer notify on course golfers of inclement weather and lightning in the area by sounding an air horn.

In case of lightning, individual golfers already on the course are responsible for monitoring weather conditions and deciding if continuation of play is safe.

As soon as you hear thunder seek the clubhouse, the lowest elevation area or a large enclosed vehicle.

If sudden, close-in lightning does not permit evacuation:

Spread out from your group
Squat down and tuck your head and cover your ears
Head for the safest place as soon as immediate threat passes.

If you have questions about this new policy, please talk with one of the Golf Course staff.
