    And who is going to start a bonfire on the course ? Really - only the ground staff at my place start bonfires and it’s only in the winter - i very much doubt any club needs to have a “no bonfire rule”

    My club are also prob going to cancel the fireworks that were planned for sat evening Stars and Stripes Social function - again common sense
    1st Bold, I didn't ignore it, try reading the post (to help its the bit where I say "its only prudent to have some fire risk measures, including the risk from smoking"

    2nd bold, See its that 'tar all smokers with the same brush' thing again (see what I did there using the word Tar.. no probably not) Anyway just because there's inconsiderate smokers doesn't mean we all are. If we followed that logic no one would ever visit Liverpool

    3rd bold I wasn't serious about bonfires, try reading the post (to help its the bit where I say "Ok just flippant I know")

    Jeez

    I'd be interested to hear if any courses keep the smoking ban after the fire risk is over

    Re: Course is Bone Dry - Temporarily Ban Smoking?

    Our course has posted "Due to the dry conditions and the fire hazard they cause we thank you for not smoking on the course" signs up all over the place. Don't seem to bother the smokers much. Lady I played with on Sunday smoked like a chimney the whole way round. In her defence: She did use an ashtray atttached to her trolley. Still, I don't know where people find the nerve to just disregard the signs. I would die of shame.

    An ashtray attached to her trolley, that is a serious smoker. I bet she is the one German who crosses the road when the person is on red, a real rule breaker

    That’s not a ban though is it ! .the sign should read” No smoking by order of The committee “
    Anyone caught should be asked to leave the course.

    Valid point. Especially in Germany. If you want people to not do something you really have to say: "X is forbidden under the penalty of Y". A simple "Please don't do that" or "Thank you for not doing that" is never going to cut it. Drives me nuts, though. Why can't people just be consderate?
