Latest Covid Update – 14/10/20

In the clubs last update posted on 6th October 2020 the Committee informed members of their intention to re-open the clubhouse bar on Wednesday 7th October 2020 albeit under new DRINK-SAFE conditions. This we did. The Committeehave been monitoring the bars use since re-opening and have been encouraged by the way our members, guests and visitors have respected and followed our DRINK-SAFE rules. The Committee would like to thank everyone who has supportedthe club by using all our facilities in such a responsible manner. With your continuing help we can operate in a safe and sustainable way and hopefully without any further forced interruption.

Also, the club have received new guidance from England Golf (https://www.englandgolf.org/download/covid-19-positive-case-advice/) giving advice on what procedures should be followed if the club is notified of a Covid 19 positive testresult from a player or member of staff . The club, on the exceedingly rare occasions to date, when informed by a member of a positive test result, have implemented procedures in line with this new guidance. We will continue to do so.

Please keep safe and enjoy your golf.
