Don’t Let Buggies Become Bugbears

Buggy health and safety is something that needs managing well, but be careful not to ban buggies just because you fear control over course safety could be diminished. A recent case proves how it is not just the health and safety issues relating to buggies that can land you in court.

Golf Rage: Have You Considered It?

When Thomas Pieters snapped a club around his own neck in rage a few months ago, it served as a reminder of what the game of golf can do to a player and had echoes of Rory McIlroy throwing an iron into a lake at Doral, in 2015.

Be In It To Win It!

Who doesn’t like a little brain-teaser, when the weather is too wild to get out on the course and when there’s an opportunity to convey your superior knowledge about golf courses, when socialising with friends or fellow club members?

Don’t Fear the Buggy!

Golf clubs have been castigated for discriminating against, of all things, the innocent golf buggy, with a number of past cases demonstrating that clubs have tried to cite health and safety law as a reason to ban buggies, which they fear could cause damage on wet ground.

Let At-Desk Learning Address Your H&S Handicaps

Reasons not to train in health and safety are prevalent in golf club environments, where volunteers are put upon enough when it comes to demands on their time, and where sending employees away for external training not only costs a fortune but leaves the clubhouse short of personnel. Gauntlet E-learning addresses all of these issues.
