Suspension of Play. RoG, Rule 6-8 And Appendix I Part C 5. Revised 2014-12-19. 
Rule 6-8a. Discontinuance of Play; Resumption of Play; a. When Permitted:" The player must not discontinue play unless: (i) the Committee has suspended play; (ii) he believes there is danger from lightning; (iii) he is seeking a decision from the Committee on a doubtful or disputed point (see Rules 2-5 and 34-3) or (iv) there is some other good reason such as sudden illness.
Bad weather is not of itself a good reason for discontinuing play.
If the player discontinues play without specific permission from the Committee, he must report to the Committee as soon as practicable. If he does so and the Committee considers his reason satisfactory, there is no penalty. Otherwise , the player is disqualified.
Exception i match play: Players discontinuing match play by agreement are not subject to disqualification, unless by doing so the competition is delayed.
Note: To leave the course does not of itself constitute discontinuance of play."

Appendix I Part C 5, Suspension of Play Due to a Dangerous Situation (Note to Rule 6-8b):
As there has been many deaths and injuries from lightning on golf-courses, all clubs and sponsors of golf competitions are urged to take precautions for the protection of persons against lightning. Attention is called Rule 6-8 and 33-2d. If the Committee desires to adopt the condition in the Note under Rule 6-8b, the following wording is recommended:
"When play is suspended by the Committee for a dangerous situation, if the players in a match or group are between the play of two holes, they must not resume play until the Committee has ordered a resumption of play. If they are in the process of playing a hole, they must discontinue immediately, and not resume play until the Committee has ordered a resumption of play. If a player fails to discontinue play immediately, he is disqualified, unless circumstances warrant waiving the penalty as provided in Rule 33-7. The signal for suspending play due to a dangerous situation will be a prolonged note of the siren".  

The following signals are generally used and it is recommended that all Committees do similarly:  

Discontinue Play Immediately: One prolonged note of siren.

Discontinue Play: Three consecutive notes of siren, repeated.

Resume Play: Two short notes of siren, repeated.
