Dear Member;

We hope you and your families remain safe and healthy during the difficult times we face responding to the coronavirus outbreak. Our thoughts as a club go out to anyone affected either directly or indirectly. We also send our thanks to those members serving the community. We have many members who work in the emergency services and also those that are supporting unprecedented demand in the food chain, doing their best to maintain supply to customers. The reality is though that all of us are affected in some way with an uncertain period of time ahead.

Due to the nature of our sport, we understand that our members and visitors will still want to play despite the outbreak of the virus. We will maintain the course to the best of our ability and keep it open unless there is government intervention or matters beyond our control make this unachievable. We are making the following changes;

1. Golf can still be played but all competitive golf, including matches, knockouts etc. will be cancelled with effect from Wednesday 18th March, 2020 for the foreseeable future.
2. Golf course furniture, such as bins and ball washers have been removed to reduce the physical hard surfaces on the course.
3. The holes on the greens will be filled with sand, the flag will remain in place but holing the ball will not be possible. The flagstick must not be removed or handled.
4. The bunker rakes will be removed, and we therefore ask that you smooth footprints with your club or foot. Our greenstaff will be raking the bunkers on a daily basis.
5. Despite the usual expectations of etiquette, if you do play, please limit bodily contact and, as per government advice, try to maintain a good distance between players at all times.

In respect of the Club House it is important that we follow Government guidance and also maintain a safe environment for all. We are adopting the following with effect from Wednesday 18th March, 2020;

1. Our kitchen will be closed until further notice.
2. Social events including Club Nights, Friday Night Live, Evening Bridge, Sunday Lunches will unfortunately all be cancelled until further notice.
3. We will maintain a bar operation in Fiddians’ Lounge only, but this will be on limited basis with our opening hours reduced to 12.00noon to 6.00pm, again effective from Wednesday 18th March, 2020.
4. Toilet facilities will remain open, but we encourage Members to change into or out of golf attire either at home or in the car park.

We recognise these are unsettling times and we thank you for your custom and support. However, what is most important is that you take care of yourselves and your families by minimising risk. It is absolutely our intention to help you with that but if you do have any further suggestions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Mark Hughes who, at this time, is our club specific point of contact.

Thank you for your understanding. We will provide updates in a timely manner as things change or government guidance is revised.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Palmer
Chairman
