York Golf Club

York Golf Club

Course Designed by J.H. Taylor in 1904


Golfers are expected to wait for staff to acknowledge them and move out of range, BEFORE playing a shot that might endanger them.

Greens staff are always vigilant when working on the course and are aware of golfers waiting to play.


A two-step signalling process is followed: -

A hand-signal to acknowledge the golfer and tell them that they must wait.  This will be a single raised hand.


A waving of the hand/arm in a forwards and backwards motion signals the golfer to play.


Please also note the following points: -

• If the greenkeeper is within 2 minutes of completing a task, they  will finish before moving away.

• If the greenkeeper is NOT within 2 minutes of completing the  task, they will move to a position of safety and wave golfers on.

• DO NOT assume a greenkeeper will be able to hear or react to  a shout of “FORE!”

• A position of safety includes parking at the edge of the fairway  and facing away from golfers.

• All golfers and greens staff have been provided with this  information.

• ANY subsequent near misses, resulting from impatient golfers  will be reported and pursued by the club.

• This is a Zero Tolerance Policy.
