Players should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like when they make a stroke or practice swing.



Players should not play until the players in front are out of range.



If a player plays a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone, he should immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such a situation is "fore."



Junior Members ages 17 and under must be accompanied under the supervision of his/her guardian during any tournament round at all times. No member shall be allowed to drive a golf cart unless he/she possessed a valid drivers license. 



All members are responsible to inform their guests to comply with all safety procedures.


First Aid Assistance: In the event of an accident, notify the clubhouse for assistance or call 911 if the accident is life threatening. Prior to start of the round, you must obtain the phone number at the clubhouse. All accidents must be reported to the President of SGCI.



You are advised to exercise caution at all times on the course in respect of identifying areas where you may be at potential risk of being hit by another golfer’s ball, especially on those holes where the landing area is not clearly visible from the tee and areas where parallel fairways are played in opposing directions.



Golf Cart: All golf carts must always be operated in accordance with the golf cart manufacturer and golf course policy. Do not attempt to operate the cart on restricted areas such as steep slopes, environmental zones, flowerbeds and wherever it is not safe to do so. Do not operate cart when you are under influence of alcohol or some medications, which may impair your ability to operate a golf cart. Compliance with traffic control and regulatory signs posted all over the course shall be strictly followed at all times.



Out of Bounds: Errant golf shot that causes damage to any of neighboring properties must be reported to the clubhouse. You are strongly advised not to attempt to retrieve balls that are hit out of bounds.



Steep Slopes and Cart Paths: Some golf courses have too many steep slopes and paths. At all times, players are advised to take care when walking up or down particularly when driving a golf cart.



Steps: You are advised to use all concrete or wooden steps leading to the fairways or greens with caution, particularly in wet or icy conditions.



Wildlife:  Players should be aware that there is potential threat from wildlife such as snakes, wasps, bees and other biting insects on the course. At  times, do not attempt to retrieve your ball on hazards especially on areas with sign posted “Beware of snakes”. Urgent medical attention should be sought if you suffer from venomous bite. Call 911 for immediate assistance.



Inclement of Weather:  During inclement of weather such as rain, darkness, fog, ice and lightning, the fact that the course has not been officially closed does not warrant that it is fit for play. Therefore, members and guests should themselves determine whether they consider it safe to play. Players have a duty of care to behave in such a way that others may not be injured by their actions. They also have a duty of care to ensure that they do not injure themselves. All players play at their own risk and should do nothing to jeopardize the safety of themselves or others.
