Thanks all.  Got my homework set now.  Ours had a ridiculous line that old fellas don't fare well in the heat and it isn't fair for the youngsters to have a better chance of winning the comp, so it is cancelled when it is hot. 

 

If that's the case I suppose we should cancel the comp because youngsters have jobs and kids to deal with and it isn't fair they don't get to play enough, or cancel it when its cold because morning players don't hit the ball as far. 

 

 

It's a case of writing the policy correctly so that morning play can be held but not putting people at risk.  Regarding the temperatures, we go off what the experts say is dangerous and not what anyone 'reckons'.

Today at Keysie they cancelled the medal day. Comp of the day is Par off the whites with the tees all advanced as forward as possible. Idea being to reduce the time taken. Also, if it reaches 38 the comp will be cancelled. Not sure if they actually close the course. I imagine all the Pisspots will adjourn to the bar for the day.

With the heat and strong northerly I couldn't see it being much fun anyway.

Apparently their new driver corrects the weather depending on what part of the face you hit the ball with.

Comp has to go off before midday...so no.
And all bar one person who started managed to finish, and I'm not certain the one who didn't had anything to do with the temperature.
