Typhoon Procedures

In developing these guidelines for its tournaments, the Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA) considers the safety of players and staff to be paramount.

Signal 3 / red & yellow rain warnings

After consultation by the Tournament Director with the Golf Club regarding the state of the golf course, providing the course is open, play will take place and all competitors must make their way to the Golf Club.  All tee times will be as posted.

Signal 8 or above / black rain warning

Sirens will be sounded and play will be suspended immediately and competitors must leave the golf course as quickly as possible.

Should a number 8 or higher signal / black rain warning be withdrawn after 5:00 a.m. on the day of the tournament then play will not commence before 12:00 p.m. or less than 3 hours after the signal comes down, whichever is the later.
