11 May Members will be able to book tee times from 6pm tonight, Monday 11th May for tee times from Wednesday 13th May
| Limited Return to Golf from Wednesday! Play Safe to Stay Safe.
At last some good news – from this Wednesday 13th May there is a limited return to golf, albeit casual golf either alone or with persons living in the same household and no competitions.
However, we must open the Club and play the game in a responsible manner and all of us have to recognise our obligation to our fellow members and staff to Play Safe and Stay Safe.
This means that for the foreseeable future things will be very different to ‘normal’ and it is essential that all members familiarise themselves with the following policies and procedures which are in full accordance with England Golf’s ‘Return to Golf’ Framework.
Booking a tee-time
We anticipate the course being very busy and to give all members a chance to get back on the course your Management Committee have agreed the following policies and rules:
The BRS system has been re-configured to ‘manage’ the above and to be fair to everyone your Management Committee is also requesting that members voluntarily comply with the following: Weekdays: DO NOT play on consecutive days Weekends: Play on either or both days as permitted by your membership category. This will be actively monitored by the Section Captains.
Arriving at the Club
• Do NOT come to the club if displaying any COVID-19 symptoms;
Preparing to Play
• Buggies will NOT be available for hire.
Playing Your Game
• No shaking hands!
After Your Game
• The air compressor and water hose for the cleaning of shoes and trolleys will be turned off.
We await clarification as to whether or not the Pro-Shop can open but if and when Mark can re-open the following rules will apply:
To provide re-assurance to members that the social distancing and health & safety protocols described above are being respected a member volunteer ‘force’ is being assembled that will be on duty for the hours the clubhouse is open i.e. 8am – 5pm.
These volunteers which are being marshalled by Senior Captain, Tom Witherington, will also help maintain clubhouse security as several doors will be left open.
It’s great to think that we can now get back on the course (which looks brilliant by the way) but it is incumbent upon all of us to Play Safe and Stay Safe.
Please prepare yourself for your return to the course by familiarising yourself with all the above policies and procedures and please let me know should you believe that we’ve missed something or that anything needs further clarification.
