Golf Course Raincheck Policy at Thousand Hills, Branson Missouri
Before you hit the greens at any Branson Golf Course you’ll want to find out the course’s raincheck and storm safety policies. This short video lists the golf course raincheck policy at Thousand Hills Golf Course. For more details or clarification please contact us at 1-877-262-0430 and one of our representatives will be happy to help you. For a transcription of the golf course raincheck policy, just scroll down past the video for text of the details.
We’re going to start here with “#1-When the on course warning systme has been activated, all play must cease and golfers are to seek shelter in the clubhouse if possible.” If you are not able to make it to the clubhouse go ahead and seek shelter on the golf course at the two shelters located on the #10 and the #17 tee box.
“#2-The on course warning system will stop after a period of time; this is not necessarily the ‘all clear’. Play is not to resume until permission has been given from the clubhouse.”
“#3 – 18-hole rainchecks are issued if play is suspended before the 5th hole of an eighteen hole round. 9-hole rain checks are issued if play is suspended before the 14th hold of an eighteen hole round, or before the 5th hole of a nine hole round.” Refunds are not given here at Thousand Hills unless play has not begun and weather delays your round.
Thousand Hills is also equipped with the ThorGuard lightning detection system. This is basically just a guide that the pro shop uses to help keep golfers safe on the golf course and is never intended to fully protect the golfers on the course. Golfers should use their common sense and keep an eye to the sky. If any lightning is seen or thunder heard golfers are to return to the clubhouse and the raincheck policy will be instituted. Our ThorGuard system is at All Clear right now with no lightning being indicated. We will call golfers in off the golf course if the DI level gets to the red mark here with the #3 on it. We will get a warning at 2.5 and this is when we usually start calling golfers in off the golf course.
Radar is another tool that the pro shop staff is trained to observe while you’re enjoying your round of golf. Today we are showing some scattered thunderstorms in the area and we will be watching this. We will sound the alarm system if needed. We are located in Taney County, but Branson is usually displayed as on this radar screen. Again, Taney County.
This is a weather warning system out here on the golf course. You’ll notice that in the event of an emergency the yellow light will be flashing. Most of these alarms are sounded due to lightning detected at the Clubhouse and all play should cease at that time. Please return to the Clubhouse, again if one of these alarms is sounded. The alarm itself sounds somewhat like a pack of locusts – a low, buzzing sound and the yellow light will be flashing. So if you see this or hear that sound please return to the clubhouse immediately. Thank you!
