How will Covid 19 affect the day?
Arrival no more than 20 minutes prior to your tee off time
The Clubhouse will be open with a limited number of people permitted in the bar/lounge at any one time. We also have two outside terraces for use in favourable weather.
The decision has been taken to relax the footwear rule for the summer period. This means you can wear soft spikes in the lounge area. If we have poor weather and your shoes are dirty, please change them for an alternative clean pair.
The locker rooms will not be in use, so you are advised to arrive in your golf clothing and change your shoes in the car park.
There will be toilets available in the clubhouse.
At registration you will be given the scorecard of one of your playing partners, you will mark his / her scores and your own and then check the scores after your round and before handing in your playing partner’s card. You are not required to sign your own scorecard as the Player but you are required to sign your playing partner’s card as the Marker.
Player’s must not swap scorecards.
Scorecards must be put in the box on the registration desk asap after your round.
Bunkers will be in play but there will be no rakes. You can prefer your lie within the bunker within 6 inches & no nearer the hole. After playing your stroke you must smooth the sand using your feet and / or club.
The flagstick must remain in the hole and players must not touch the flagstick with their hand. A player can request to have the flagstick pulled back by using a putter head if the flag is ‘against’ them ie leaning to the side of the hole from where they are putting from.
At all times players must maintain the appropriate social distancing.
