  • Whilst waiting to check-in, please wait in the waiting area outside the shop which is clearly defined
  • Once you have checked in for your round, please make your way straight to the tee waiting area and only proceed to the tee box when it is clear of the group in front

 

Changing Rooms

  • The changing rooms will be accessible from the external doors but only to use the loos (no changing of clothes/shoes, showering or accessing lockers will be permitted)
  • Doors will be propped open during Club opening hours to minimise contact areas so please do not leave anything in the changing rooms

 

Hiring buggies & trollies

  • Buggies & trollies will be available to hire but must only be used by one person throughout the round
  • There will be a separate pick-up and drop-off point for the buggies and trollies
    • Pick-up location: Area opposite Pro Shop
    • Drop-off location: Along the path by the entrance to the gym
  • After your round, please return your buggy/trolley to the drop-off area and do not remove the buggy key or trolley handle. The club will the clean and disinfect all buggies and trollies after use

 

Warm up facilities

  • The practice facilities are now open – please maintain social distancing at all times and please use your own equipment and balls when practising.

 

During your round

  • Please adhere to social distancing measures at all times
  • Only one person to be on the tee box at any one time
  • Remain at least 2 metres away from your playing partner and any other groups on the course
  • Please keep to a good speed of play – allow faster groups to play through
  • Flagsticks will remain in place but MUST NOT be removed from the hole or touched at any time
  • Mechanisms have been installed to stop balls dropping too far into the hole
  • Bunkers are back in play and a new local rule of preferred lies is in operation
  • All course furniture including benches are not to be used
  • The water fountain has been turned off and all ball washers removed from the course
  • Make sure your golf ball is easily identifiable so there is no need to pick it up to check
  • Do not touch your playing partner’s equipment or golf ball. If you find any equipment left on the course, please do not touch it.
  • Do not approach any staff you may encounter on the course – a polite wave from a safe distance will be sufficient
  • Players must refrain from handshakes, high-fives or any other contact with their playing partner

 

After your round

  • The shoe cleaner will not be in operation
  • Please do not gather in groups from any more than six households
  • Please refrain from the temptation to mingle with other golfers and leave promptly
  • We advise all golfers to clean their clubs after each round when they return home

 

It is essential that golfers adhere to these measures exactly as requested. Anyone found not adhering to these requirements may be asked to leave the course.
