1 GOLF CART SAFETY It is up to each of us to ensure we are aware of potential hazards of operating Golf Carts at a crowded Golf Tournament

2 INTRODUCTION The goal of this presentation is to identify proper safety procedures, as well as to promote and provide for a safer environment for those attending the 2014 Wells Fargo Championship.

3 There are in excess of (250) golf carts operating at Quail Hollow Club during the week of the Wells Fargo Championship. During a normal Saturday of Tournament Week, there are as many as 32,500 spectators in attendance. Of the 210 acres that make up Quail Hollow Club, over 2/3 of the land is restricted to competition only. THE FACTS ABOUT GOLF CARTS

4 Golf Cart Safety 1. Spectators and Pedestrians always have the right-of-way. 2. When operating a golf cart around spectators, it is important to be patient. 3. It is important to remember that most carts are electric and do not make any sound when approaching pedestrians. 4. Make your presence known by announcing in a lower voice: On your right or excuse me before attempting to pass.

5 Procedures Continued 9. When shifting from forward to reverse, make sure the cart has come to a complete stop. 10. Report any cart mechanical issues (weak brakes etc…) to Cart Committee immediately. 11. Never try to push a disabled cart. These carts are not designed like a car, and injury can occur. 12. Texting while operating any cart is strictly prohibited and will result in confiscation! 13. Report anybody operating a cart in an unsafe manner to Cart Committee immediately.

6 Areas Restricted to Carts 1. Driving Range (main road). Use #4 side to access bus drop area. 2. Area from #9 Green to #18 Green. Very Crowded! 3. #15 Green / #16 Tee. 4. Area between #2 green and #8 Tee (noise) All areas are very congested and should be avoided in a golf cart!

7 General Safety Rules 1. No Cart to be operated by intoxicated person 2. Do not drive cart until all passengers are properly seated. 3. Always drive straight up and down steep hills. 4. Avoid making sudden or sharp turns. 5. Never stand up in a moving cart.

8 General Safety Rules 6. Drive with caution during periods when grass is wet. 7. Remove keys from unattended carts. 8. Before driving cart, ensure cart is in forward/reverse

Abuse of golf carts will NOT be tolerated. Defacing golf carts with non-Tournament issued signage will NOT be tolerated. Transferring cart plaque signs from one cart to another will NOT be tolerated. Driving a cart off Quail Hollow Property will NOT be tolerated. Tournament insurance does not cover giving spectators a lift, so please do not offer rides.
