WBVGC:  Winter is Here - Frost Delay Policy - Next Week Will Be Cold - Thursday Alternating Double Shotguns

Winter is Here

It is somewhat cold now in the mornings, but it is supposed to be very cold next week. We are attempting to setup the tee-sheet as late as we can in anticipation of any delays, however we still have a high demand on certain days of the week. 

As the weather is supposed to be extremely cold next week, please make sure to call or check online for frost delays before heading to the course. When you call the club (623.566.4548) the course conditions/delays will be the first item you hear. Please listen for the date as sometimes we do not have full details until about 7:30am. You may also check online in the members portal or at https://westbrookvillagegolf.com/course-conditions/frost. In addition, staff will send out Chelsea emails with updated times if there are any delays.

Frost Delay Policy

In order to provide equal opportunity for playing time to both morning and afternoon players, the following policy will apply when play is delayed due to frost.

  • The Golf Shop will maintain a log of frost delays for both golf courses.
  • The Golf Course Superintendent will determine the length of each frost delay.
  • The first frost delay on a given day of the week of the winter golf season will have a PLAN A in effect.
  • Under PLAN A, all tee times will be delayed by the length of the morning frost delay. In this case, depending on the length of delay, scheduled afternoon golfers may not have available daylight to complete 18 holes of play. 
  • The second instance of a frost delay, on a given day of the week (Monday, Tuesday.... etc.) for either course "where afternoon times will not finish before dark"PLAN B will be in effect. 
  • Under PLAN B, all scheduled tee times prior to the lifting of the frost delay will be cancelled.  For example, if the Golf Course Superintendent determines the course is available for play beginning at 9 A.M., then players scheduled for 9 A.M. will be the first tee time for that day. All scheduled tee times earlier than 9 A.M. will be cancelled, resulting in no delays for the remainder of the day.  Those players, whose tee times were cancelled due to the frost delay, may choose to play at an available tee time later in the day.  
  • The remainder of the winter golf season at each course will alternate between PLAN A and PLAN B.  The Golf Shop will determine if PLAN A or PLAN B will be in effect on a daily basis for each course based on the above parameters. 

Exceptions to the above policy will be made for Charter League play.  Charter League play days at each course will follow PLAN A, and all other tee times will be delayed at the course(s) where the Charter League is playing.  If a Charter League is using one course and there is no Charter League play at the other course, the alternating PLAN A or PLAN B will be in effect according to the frost delay log maintained by the Golf Shop.
 

What will the next frost delay be? As there have been no delays this season, the next frost delay will be a Plan A at each course.

Please continue to fill your divots and fix yours and others' ball marks. Our cart path restrictions were removed last week, so it should be a little easier to now have divot mix present after your shot. If you fill yours as well as another, we should soon have no divots to fill other than new ones we make :)

Tee-Sheet Demand and Setup
We are currently alternating courses every two weeks for Thursday Double Shotguns in order to fulfill tee-time requests. With the days so short, Monday's may soon join this rotation. We are in the Holiday Season which generally has a little bit of a slowdown in numbers especially the week before and after Christmas. We will continue to adjust the tee-sheet setup to match demands as best as we can. 

Thank you for being members of such a great club. Stay warm and have a great holiday season!
