Covid-19 Update – 20/12/2020
Following the release of the government guidance for tier 4 areas I am pleased to be able to say that golf is permitted to continue but with a return to 2-ball golf. Whilst the guidance would allow for larger single household groups to play together we will remain with 2-balls only to promote a good pace of play for all golfers.
With a tee sheet full of 4-ball bookings there are limited options open to us in how we operate tomorrow and therefore the following will apply.
Each booking will be changed to 9-holes only with each 4-ball split into two 2-balls; one pair playing from the 1st and one pair playing from the 10th.
Any booking larger than 2 people will be split into smaller groups but with only one starting hole you should expect that tee times will be delayed and it may be possible that some bookings may need to be cancelled if we cannot accommodate everyone. If we need to cancel a booking we will let you know as soon as possible.
If you no longer require your tee time please cancel as soon as possible as this may allow others to play, this is even more important now that course capacity has been significantly reduced.
All bookings from Monday 21st onwards will be deleted from the tee sheet tomorrow morning and once we have reconfigured it for 2-ball bookings it will be re-opened for bookings. Members will be able to make bookings from 10:00am on Sunday morning, for tee times from Monday 21st onwards. As we have seen previously there can be increased stresses on the booking system at these times and we appreciate your patience if you encounter any problems.
With the reduced availability of tee times that 2-ball golf will cause, no roll-ups, swindle or section times will be pre-allocated until further notice. The visitor booking window will reduce back to 1 day in advance to ensure that members get priority. The member booking window will stay at 10 days in advance.
The shop, as non-essential retail will be closed, but will be manned for golfer check-in and payment of guest and visitors green fees.
England Golf led the challenge on behalf of the golf industry, during the last lockdown, for golf to be able to continue and this has come to fruition. This is great news for golf so once again we ask you to help us to make it work;
- Ensure you stay 2m from other people whilst at the club, this includes your playing partner.
- Wash or sanitise hands regularly.
- Only mix with one person outside of your household.
- Arrive no more than 15 mins prior to your tee times.
- Leave site promptly after your round.
