    Latest update: 1st January 2021

    We are continuing to follow guidance from England Golf on course set-up and general play. It is absolutely essential that all members and visitors to the club comply with the rules and guidance set out that we have set out below:

    Tier 4 restrictions in place

    Social distancing measures MUST be adhered to at all times:
    • Stay at least 2 metres apart from anyone who is not from your household
    Before your round
    Bookings
    • ALL tee times MUST be booked in advance
    • Bookings of up to 2 people from different households are allowed (single golfers)
    • Roll-ups are NOT currently permitted
    Arrival and waiting to play
    • You should aim to arrive shortly before your tee time
    Clubhouse access

    Under the current Tier 4 restrictions the clubhouse is closed!

    However, the gents changing room will remain unlocked in order for golfers to access the toilets.

    • Ladies and gents changing rooms are open
    • Access is only for 1 person at a time
    • The locker rooms should NOT to be used a changing facility. Please change your shoes in the car park
    On the golf course

    Where possible we have removed objects from the golf course that are common points of contact, including bunker rakes and benches.

    Flags / flag poles
    • Do NOT touch the flag / flag pole
    • Putt with the flag in at all times
    • We have amended our flag poles so that it is easier to collect your golf ball from the hole
    Bells

    The bells have remained on the golf course for safety reasons.

    • We suggest that you ring the bell with the sole of your golf club
    • If waiting for the 1st / 10th green to clear we recommend waiting by the clubhouse before going to the 1st / 10th tee so that you can see when the green is clear
    Bunkers

    Bunker rakes have been removed but bunkers are still in play.

    • In competitive play you can place your ball within 6 inches of it's original position not nearer the hole
    • In non-competitive play, players have the option of placing the ball anywhere within the bunker, or playing from outside of the bunker
    • After being in the bunker, try and smooth the sand with your feet
    Maintaining social distance

    Remember to maintain a distance of at least 2 metres at all times on the golf course. Be particularly mindful:

    • On teeing grounds
    • On the greens
    • On the greens
    • When using paths and bridges
    After the round

    Social distancing is as important after a round as it is during the round, so when the round is over all golfers must leave the course and the club immediately so that there are no gatherings around the clubhouse area.
