Following the easing of restrictions from Monday 19th July 2021, we wish to share our very own policy with you.
Post restrictions from 19th July 2021
- Although there are no longer any limits on how many people can meet, we do ask that all customers including golfers, carvery guests, wedding parties, conference gatherings and general visitors respect others personal space and consider space and ventilation when gathering indoors. This includes the changing areas and function rooms.
- 1m-plus guidance removed but all customers are to be responsible for respecting personal space.
- Face coverings are now not required by law and we will not be insisting our staff wear them, especially in very hot kitchens; however, the government still encourages people to wear masks in confined areas. You are more than welcome to continue wearing your mask if you feel more comfortable and safe.
Events and gatherings
- Dancing at weddings and parties is now allowed which means our weddings and tribute nights will operate as per usual.
- Pubs and restaurants are no longer offering table-service only. All guests are asked to Que at the bar and kindly respect others personal space. Please avoid queuing in deep rows and from congregating in groups when ordering.
- No limits on guests at weddings and funerals. Our events will return to normal, however, all managers will monitor each event on an individual merit and will advise guests if personal space and or the behavior are not fitting with the event.
- No limits on people attending concerts, theatres or sports events. As with the above, our staff will monitor each event to ensure the health and safety of all guests are a priority.
As far as the new rules apply to golf, the following restrictions will come into play on July 19, although any guidance may be re-issued, subject to future announcements of government measures to combat COVID-19.
- Course Set-up
- All golf course furniture will be returned for normal use, including the removal of flagsticks, standard hole cups, bunker rakes and ball washers.
- Golfers are encouraged to bring their own sanitizer on to the golf course to ensure that golfers can regularly clean their hands, especially when touching “Hot spot areas” such as bunker rakes and ball washers.
- Before the Round
- ALL golfers MUST report to the pro shop to give their details. These are for both insurance and track & trace purposes.
- During the Round
- The government’s removal of rules and guidance around social distancing and congregation numbers mean that there are no restrictions on the golf course with regards to course furniture, sharing equipment, touching golf balls or the size of groups, beyond those set by the club.
- Practice Areas and Lessons
- Practice areas, including our practice range and indoor facilities, may operate without any restrictions on the number of users. We still encourage all golfers and visitors to the shop to use the sanitisers provided.
- Competitions and Rules of Golf
- Competition and scoring for handicap functions, including the registration process, handling and submitting of scorecards, and administration may revert to pre-pandemic operations.
- Coronavirus-related changes to the rules of golf and all handicapping provisions that enabled the game to be played competitively during the period in which restrictions have been set are to be removed.
