HEAT POLICY – KIALLA GOLF CLUB
The Kialla Golf Club’s extreme heat policy has been introduced to provide guidance to members and guests in relation to playing conditions which might impact on the health and wellbeing of players on the golf course, on high temperature and humid days to prevent confusion about when a competition will run on days of extreme heat.
Golfers are advised to take appropriate action to prevent heat stress including wearing a wide brimmed hat and carrying sufficient water to maintain hydration. All golfers should consider their own health conditions before participating in Club Events.
All information regarding the temperature is to be checked on the Bureau of Meteorology site www.bom.gov.au/vic/forecasts/shepparton.shtml at 6.00 pm, the evening prior to play.

On Thursday, men will hit off at 10.00 am.
