Frost Holes/Temporary Greens
Frost Holes will only be used when there is no prospect of normal play for 3 4 hours.
When conditions permit, flags will be returned to the main greens immediately regardless of a players position on a hole.
Members are asked to appreciate that predicting the length of a frost delay is not an exact science as air temperatures can fluctuate frequently.
