BOOKING TEE TIMES
Please continue to book using the online booking system.
Members are asked to play in 3 balls rather than 2 balls as much as possible.
It is important to remove ” Privacy “on your club online booking setting. This will allow members names to be shown when a booking is made and may prevent men booking the same tee time.
FLAGS are not to be touched and are to always remain in the hole
As the removal of all rakes has been recommended in this Protocol , Players are requested to smooth bunkers using either their foot or a club after playing their stroke.
Additionally, the following temporary LOCAL RULE FOR BUNKERS will be in place.
” When a players’ ball lies in a bunker , the player may take free relief of 6 inches in the bunker.
Relief must be in the bunker and it can only be taken once. Players must not smooth the sand before placing the ball.
There will be no club draws until further notice. Please organise your own tee times and partners.
HAVE YOUR OWN SANITISER WITH YOU
Vouchers will be issued for the competitions regularly and can be collected from the shop when notified .
Please maintain social distancing at all times and avoid slow play on the course.
The programme for the year has been suspended but any changes will be emailed to all members.
Locker rooms are out of bounds in the meantime.
