We would like to re-assure all our Members that it is our intention to ensure that the Golf Course remains open, at all times. The only thing that could prevent this, apart from the weather, is if the Government decides to close all Courses throughout the Country.

We believe this is highly unlikely as the Government has continued it’s advice that exercise in the fresh air, should be continued, even for those in self-isolation.

Golf is clearly one of the safest ways to take exercise and to interact socially with minimal personal contact.
We are also fully committed to fulfilling all planned competitions.

With this in mind, there are some new conditions, as a result of the Coronavirus, that everyone must follow, these being:

• The flagstick should remain in the hole at all times during play in order to limit the risk of infection spreading from hand to hand

• All rakes will be removed from bunkers, again to limit the risk of infection. We ask that all players use their feet or a club to smooth the sand after playing, and that they leave the bunker in the condition they would expect to find for themselves.

• New cups, which are much shallower than the usual ones, have been put in each hole to make it easier to collect your ball without touching the flagstick

• Players must not approach any tee until it is clear, and it is your turn to play. This is particularly relevant with regard to the first tee at West End. It is essential that players do not congregate by the side of the first tee, remembering that they should at all times try to maintain a 2 metre space between themselves and other players. We would also remind members to adhere to the guidelines regarding personal hygiene, particularly, with regard to the washing of hands.

• Players will be able to continue booking into competitions via the BRS system However, players will not need to use the system to register into competitions when collecting their Scorecards. This will be done by the Professional


• At the end of the round scores should not be entered into the computer, they should just be posted in the box. As scorecards can carry infection, which could remain for up to 72 hours, there will be a 3 day turnaround before the Professional can upload the scores on to the system. The usual rules apply regarding reducing your Handicap if you have scored below par for your round.

• Please ensure that you do not touch the Clubs, Range Finders or pick up the ball of your playing partners.

• Please do not shake hands either at the start of the round or at the end.

• Where possible please use Contactless payments when paying to enter the Competition.

• The practice putting green is closed and should not be used until such time as the hole markers are in place.

• The practice net is available for use, but please bear in mind the need to keep a safe distance from anyone else in the vicinity

• The shoe cleaner & ball cleaners are no longer in use

• Please change your shoes in the car park rather than the locker room whenever possible

The Halfway house will be open to provide food before, during and after your round.
Tony will be happy to take telephone orders should you wish to pre-order takeaway food. He can be contacted by phone or text on: 07870823758
Please try to support Tony by making as much use of his services as possible in what is a very difficult time for him.

Finally, the Office will be open on Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm for those wishing to pay their subscriptions.

We hope you all have a great golfing year and that you will continue to support the Club as you have done in the past
