The committee is pleased to announce that in compliance with the easing of government social restrictions the golf course is open for play subject to the guidance below.

These measures are foremost tailored for the health and safety of all our members, visitors, employees and the wider community.  They also adhere to the directions of the government and the advice of the health organisations dedicated to minimising the impact of the virus.

It should be noted that everyone at the club has a personal and social responsibility to observe these guidelines and maintain social distancing requirements at all times.

Our measures and procedures are under constant review and will be updated as advice from government, health authorities and the sport’s governing bodies evolves in line with the gradual lifting of social restrictions.
