Coronavirus (Covid 19) Update - 14th May 2020 

From today you have been able to book a tee time to play on your own or with another member of your household that is also a member. Booking times can be made with Jason or Nicola from today as notified in my previous update yesterday.

The Secretary has received a number of emails/phone calls regarding the course opening and set guidelines. As far as we are concerned NOTHING HAS CHANGED since the last communication to you on 13th May the guidelines still remain with the following additions:

• The restriction of members only being allowed to play in singles and another member of the same household has had a significant impact on the number of tee time bookings made today. Therefore, the club has taken the decision to allow members to book additional tee times within the first week of play. The 3 day buffer will not come into effect until 2 balls are permitted.

• Members will be permitted to bring along one adult non-member of their family household to walk the course with them. The family member must not wander to other parts of the course or clubhouse areas and must stay with the member at all times. They will follow the same strict guidelines as the member and not pick up balls from the course or touch the flagpoles etc.

• All practice areas facilities are out of bounds and not to be used.

• It is imperative that single players MUST NOT pair up at any point on the course. If this practice is carried out it will jeopardise the guidelines and restrictions enforced by Wales Golf and the Welsh Government and may result in the course being closed.

• Score Cards will not be available

If your clubs and trolley are still at the golf club you will need to ring Nicola at the latest by Saturday 16th May to arrange a time for collection. Until we are in a position to open the Clubhouse, locker rooms and personal facilities they will remain closed. My apologies for the inconvenience!!!

We are sincerely hoping that everyone abides by the guidelines as this will allow all players to have a peaceful, enjoyable game and to stay safe. Playing as an individual is not something most of us are used to or desire. We have to think of it as a way to have a very pleasant way to exercise and get fresh air. Remember, this is a return to golf and please do not expect too much.

With any luck Wales Government will rethink their guidelines and we will soon be able to play in twos and later 3 / 4 balls. As soon as this is allowed, we are ready to change our booking and playing arrangements, as a result of updates by Welsh Government and Wales Golf, as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, play on your own, follow the guidelines and enjoy just hitting a golf ball.


Coronavirus (Covid 19) Update - 13th May 2020
