COVID-19 Restrictions

Information for all golfers before the start of a round

Key Points

  • Social distancing (2-metre rule) between non-household members throughout the course at all times
  • Pace of play - Every hole to be completed within ten minutes – slow play may delay players behind you and the start times of players who are booked to tee off later
  • Do not call players through if space is opening up in front of you, pick up and move to the next tee
  • Do not search for lost balls for more than three minutes – If your ball is lost, use the local rule permitting the drop of another ball on fairway nearby with a two-shot penalty
  • Do not touch the flagstick
  • Do not pick up any golf balls other than the one you are playing with and do not share golf equipment
  • Do not shake hands before or after your game
  • Scorecards should be used by only one individual and must not be exchanged at any stage with other players of club officials
  • Leave the golf course without delay

House-keeping matters

  • Use the one way system as signposted when arriving at and when leaving the course
  • Club house and locker rooms are closed – the disabled toilet located in the main entrance is available for use if required
  • Practice putting green may be used by only two people at any one time shortly prior to round not after round has been completed – N.B Practice Net is out of use
  • Golf buggies may be used by single individuals only and must be cleaned afterwards
  • Bunker rakes removed - smooth over sand with feet or a club.
  • Players who may need additional time to play their round should consider booking a tee time immediately prior to the reserved slots and commence at either 11.50 or 15.50.
