The following outlines the changes to how we must operate and play golf during these unprecedented times.
COURSE SET UP
To ensure we ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’:
Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your allocated tee time. You may use your 15 minutes in the practice nets, on the putting green or both. The direction of travel will now be from the car park to the practice net and then onto the putting green. You will see markers representing 2 metre spacing on the right hand side of the path; these are yellow and red.
Please step up to the tee promptly and tee off at your allocated time. Stay clear of the other player on the tee; social distancing guidelines must be adhered to.
The flag poles will be in the holes but must not be moved. There are cups/sand at a regulated height that will ensure your ball is proud of the hole and can be picked up by you. Do not pick up somebody else’s ball.
The Course Bunker Rakes have been removed. We have bought some mini-rakes. Each player will be provided with a mini-rake ON LOAN, which can be clipped to the grip of a golf club for personal use only. At the end of the round, please place the mini-rakes in the bucket provided for washing prior to being used by another golfer.
It is strongly advised that all course furniture remains prohibited.
Before the Round
The lockers rooms are open for limited access only (for example to use the toilets). Due to the size of the changing room and toilet areas, ladies should ensure that only 1 person accesses the area at any one time. Access to the gents will be via the normal lobby entrance and then exit from the side door by the sinks, opposite the Greshams.
You will need a tee time to access the course. These can be booked by logging onto Intelligent Golf or by phoning the Club. If you can’t get through, we will call you back, please be patient!
Tee times have been allocated at 10 minute intervals and the pace rate is 1hr 50 minutes. Please maintain a quick pace of play because there is great demand for space on the golf course
You are reminded to keep your social distancing when waiting to play.
At busy times, there will be a Marshall/Starter.
During the Round
Keep at least 2 metres apart during the round.
Do not pick up anyone else’s ball.
Do not touch or remove the flagpoles.
Beware of walkers; they are not used to sharing The Chart!
After the Round
Social distancing is as important after a round as it is during the round. Please follow the guidelines visible at the clubhouse to ensure that members, visitors and staff are safe.
Thank you for your cooperation, we greatly appreciate it!
