Due to complaints received in the past few months regarding E-Cigs and use within the club premises, it has been necessary to review the Club policy on smoking and E-Cigs use. After considering much medical, legal, Health & Safety advice and guidance it is inconclusive if E-Cigs can cause health problems or not. What we do know is the following:
Heysham has a duty of care to its members, employees and junior members in regards to protection from passive smoking. Heysham Golf Club already has a smoking policy which applies to all types of smoking, however it has been necessary to introduce an E-Cigs addition to that policy. This policy will take effect from 1 Nov 16 and be implemented until sufficient evidence is available to review this policy.
Smoking is not permitted in any office, work place, reception or other room. At Heysham Golf Club there will be a designated smoking area. This applies to all types of smoking.
However for the avoidance of doubt e-cigarettes and vaporisers are prohibited from use inside all Heysham Golf Club premises. Smoking shelters are provided and can be used. Should you not wish to use these as an e-smoker then all open spaces adjacent to the Club may be used apart form the patio area.
Failure to comply with this policy may result in disciplinary action being taken.
Here at Heysham Golf Club we are known as 'the friendly club' for a very good reason.
We have a 6 bay floodlit driving range where we can help you to improve your game.
Our Clubhouse is ideally suited to holding all types of Functions.
