CLASS WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY
In the case of inclement weather, we will do everything possible to hold classes as we don’t have make-up dates available. We only cancel a class with severe weather but keep in mind class can be held indoors at some of our locations.
We will only make the decision to cancel class one hour prior to the start of class.
Please DO NOT CALL the golf course or facility for an update.
Please call 908-245-1120 one hour prior to the start of class and listen to the voicemail for cancellations. The voicemail is only changed if there are cancellations.
We also announce cancellations on our Facebook page and Twitter account. E-mail is NOT typically used to notify parents!
If the staff has time, we will also post on our website but this is the last thing as we do depend on access to a computer as staff at times are coaching these classes.
