Rental Equipment

The following terms and conditions constitute the Rental Agreement (the “Agreement”) under which SCGCC rents equipment (“rental equipment”) to you (“you” or “renter”). By signing this Agreement, you take responsibility for all players included with your group and authorise SCGCC to charge your credit card for any lost, stolen or broken rental equipment and for all other amounts payable under the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Price:

All rental prices are subject to change without notice until you book your reservation.

Credit Card Guarantee

All rentals made through SCGCC will be transacted by means of a valid credit card guarantee at the time of making a purchase.  You hereby authorise SCGCC to charge your credit card for any amounts due plus any late, lost, stolen, broken, non-returned fees, and for all other amounts payable under the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Possible additional Charges to your Credit Card

In addition to charges for the rental period, we may charge your credit card with following additional charges, under the following circumstances:

Failure to return the equipment: if you fail to return the equipment to us for any reason, including if the equipment was lost or stolen, you agree that we may charge your credit card the full amount of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the equipment, in addition to any charges for the rental period.  We also reserve the right to file a police report against you or any other party, and you hereby waive all claims against SCGCC for any consequences resulting from SCGCC making such report. 

Damage to the equipment: you must return the rental equipment to us in the same condition, normal wear and tear from proper use excepted, as we rented it to you.  If you fail to do so, we may charge your credit card an amount sufficient to fully restore the equipment to its condition at the start of the rental period. The amount we charge for these repairs shall be in our sole discretion.  Such charges shall not, however, exceed the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the damaged equipment.

Injury/Damage to Persons

You are also responsible for any loss, damage or injury caused by any person when acting under your direction, order or control in SCGCC or its environs in connection with any performance during the event or whilst arranging the event.

Damage to Property

You are responsible for any damage caused to SCGCC property by any of your employees, contractors/agents or persons attending the event whether before, during or after an event. Any damage caused to the SCGCC must be reported immediately.

Immediately after the conclusion of the event, an inspection will take place by the SCGCC staff and a report of any damage to the Club’s property during the event will be made available to you as soon as reasonably practical after the report has been prepared. You are invited to inspect any damage contained in the report, but you must do so as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event prior to any further event using the area where damage has occurred.

Insurance

SCGCC maintains public liability and property damage policies.

However, hirers/organisers are financially responsible for any injury or damage to property during the event. Therefore, it is necessary for hirers/organisers to arrange their own insurance cover for property damage and public liability, where it could be considered their liability.

It is the hirer/organiser’s responsibility that these insurance requirements are made known to all exhibitors. It is the responsibility of people bringing equipment, fittings or materials into SCGCC to insure themselves.

The person responsible for bringing any item into SCGCC that causes damage to the Resort or injury or damage to any other property or person, either directly or indirectly, will be held responsible for that damage or injury.

Laws and Regulations

At no time will the hirer/organiser commit any act or permit its employees, agents or invitees to commit any act that is illegal, noisome or offensive or is in breach of any statutes, by-laws, orders or regulations, or other provisions having the force of the Law including but not limited to the Liquor Licence and Fire Regulations.

Non-Compliance

If the signatory/organiser does not fully comply with any of the requirements in this agreement (and if such non-compliance is capable of being remedied, you fail to comply within 14 days of notice by the Club requiring compliance), SCGCC may, in its absolute discretion, terminate this agreement.

Entire Agreement

Subject to amendments specified in subsequent function event order(s), the event order and these terms and conditions will constitute the entire agreement of both parties and supersede all prior discussions, negotiations and agreements in relation to the function.
