            Clubhouse and Golf Course Staff

 

For the protection of staff and golfers please keep a ONE METRE PLUS gap at all times when in the clubhouse, especially when in the golf shop, and do not wait inside for your playing partner.

 Please leave the clubhouse as soon as you have been served or used the toilets. Please use the exit doors as marked. Please note that staff may use the entrance doors for entering and exiting, and this is for operational purposes, however, they will stay 2 metres apart from golfers.

 If any members have left items in a locker please ask for assistance to gain access to the changing rooms, where you will be allowed to collect your items, but you will then have to take them home.

 Greenkeepers will be arriving before 6am each day, so as to carry out essential grass cutting whilst the course remains empty, which will speed up their work. However, they will be then working when you are playing from 7.20am, so please be courteous, and if they are in range, please allow them to complete their work, before playing your shot.

 All members of staff, including greenkeepers, have full authority and responsibility to ensure that play on the course is carried out within the acceptable COVID-19 Guidelines from the Government, and in line with the terms above.

 All staff are therefore permitted to ask any golfer to leave the premises or course, if the rules are not respected, particularly the relevant social distancing rule, and ignoring any isolation periods and this may also lead to a ban from playing in the future.

 We do not want to enforce this, therefore, please help us to help you, and respect the terms of play, and enjoy your game of golf.

 

Temporary Local Rules

 

Covid 19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

Score Cards:

Rule 3.3b is amended thus:

·       Players may enter their own scores on the scorecard (it is not necessary for a marker to do it)

·       It is not necessary to have a marker physically certify the player’s scores, but some form of verbal certification should take place

Returning Cards to The Committee: [The method for doing this will be advised by each club via their competitions organiser(s)

Bunkers:

When a player’s ball lies in a bunker the player may take free relief by placing the original ball or using another ball and playing it from this relief area. Once the ball has been placed it cannot be replaced as it is now deemed to be in play:

•             Reference Point: Spot of the original ball.

•             Size of Relief Area Measured from Reference Point: 6 inches from

the reference point, but with these limits:

o   Limits on Location of Relief Area

o   Must not be nearer the hole than the reference point, and

o   Must be in the general area.

In proceeding under this Local Rule, the player must choose a spot to place the ball and use the procedures for replacing a ball under Rules 14.2b(2) and 14.2e.

The area where the ball is to be placed must not be smoothed before placing.

If a player fails to get out of the bunker then they are entitled to free relief again, provided the ball is in a poor lie due to the bunker not being raked.

Flagstick:

The flags are being left in the hole purely to identify the position of the hole on the putting green. Golfers must always leave the flagstick in the hole and not touch it deliberately.

Ball Holed:

The hole liners will be set in such a way that means that all of the ball may not fall below the surface of the putting green. The ball is considered “holed” if any part of it is below the surface of the putting green, even if not lodged against the flagstick.

Immovable Obstructions (Rule 16):

Stakes that define either an area of the course (such as penalty areas) or distances (such as distance markers) are Immovable Obstructions and as such must not be removed.

Penalty for breach of Temporary Local Rule: General Penalty

Note:

Smoothing of bunkers with feet or a club is permitted under Rule12.2b(2)

 

Thank you for co-operating and enjoy your golf!

Drink Safe Stay Safe

Following the latest Covid-19 guidance from the Government, bars and restaurants have been allowed to re-open. As a result, we will be opening our patio area or Oak Room to golfers. We have purchased some new outdoor furniture to assist with the social distancing rules, and will follow the government guidelines for reopening indoor and outdoor facilities. Therefore, we ask that all golfers must follow the following protocols, when using our bar and catering facilities:   The bar and catering facilities will only be open to those people who have played golf on the day, so please ensure that you read and follow the PLAY SAFE STAY SAFE guidelines

·       Our catering facilities will be open 11.00am to 5.00pm daily

·       As part of our safety protocols we will either open the outside patio or The Oak Room, but not both together

·       Please wait at the ‘welcome’ table to be seated

·       Tables outside can seat up to 4 people maximum, therefore those playing together will be allocated one table

·       However, in the Oak Room tables will only seat 2 people, and therefore a group of up to 4 people will be seated at two tables next to each other

·       Due to social distancing rules, we ask that you do not move to another table or move chairs

·       Because of the number of tables and space being limited, each table will be allocated a maximum of 45 minutes, after which they may be asked to leave, so that the table can be prepared for the next group

·       You will be given a menu, and your order will be taken at your table, and payment will be by card only – with contactless payment up to £45.00

·       Because there is a limited amount of time available per table, we will only be offering a limited selection of drinks, sandwiches and cake

·       Your drinks and food will be brought to your table, so there is no need to queue at the bar

·       Please speak to a member of staff should you wish to place a second order of drinks

·       Please note we will also be offering a Takeaway service – please use the bins on the course to dispose of any packaging

·           SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST BE ADHERED TO AT ALL TIMES – PLEASE STAY TWO METRES APART WHEN ON THE COURSE and ONE METRE PLUS WHEN IN THE CLUBHOUSE OR ON THE PATIO

 All members of staff, have full authority and responsibility to ensure that the consumption of food and drinks is carried out within the acceptable COVID-19 Guidelines from the Government, and in line with the terms above. If you do not follow the guidelines you may be asked to leave the facility. A full set of guidelines and terms of play are available on our website.

 Thank You for your cooperation.
