Lightning strikes the ground 300,000 a year in Britain, and hits 30-60 people – with golfers a particularly at-risk group who can be caught out on a course.

Building policies and practices about lightning into your risk assessments is vital and you can find more information on that in our hugely useful, free-to-download white paper, The Changing Face of Golf.     

There is also a new early-warning system available for golf clubs, which may assist your compliance in this area of risk management. Check it out, if you want another layer of protection.
