I have had three people killed by lightning on golf courses where I was pro at the time. Two were caddies. Lightning terrifies me, but even though warned some golfers absolutely will not take shelter, or come in, when there is lightning in the immediate vicinity.

I cannot physically drag them in but we always notify the club manager and other witnesses that we did what we could do to get them off the course just in case there would be an incident and subsequent litigation.
