We are approaching the second anniversary of the unfortunate February winter lightning incident at Sunbrook Golf Club in Utah, where a golfer was struck by lightning on the course. This is just one of many lightning incidents at golf courses in 2018. As shocking as it may seem, lightning incidents at golf courses aren’t rare. Just this past August, lightning hit a tree during a PGA Tour Championship, causing 6 people to be injured by debris.
These lightning incidents aren’t isolated. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that two-thirds of all lightning deaths in the U.S. are associated with outdoor recreation activities such as golfing. Having a plan in place for severe weather at your club is no longer optional. To protect staff, patrons, and property, you need to have a well thought out policy in place.
Join us on December 11th, at 1 pm ET for a webinar on club lightning and weather safety planning. Columbia Country Club’s General Manager, Will Duthe, and Earth Networks’ Program Manager & Meteorologist, Steve Prinzivalli, will go over the big 3 foundations of an effective weather safety plan and the newest technologies that you should be using at your club.
