Golf Report for the week ending 15/8/2021.
A few important notes.
Golf can still be played but under strict restrictions. Only two players are allowed in a group and only one person per cart unless from the same household. Both organised competitions and social games are allowable. The clubhouse/bar will be closed. Golf provisions will be available at the front of the golf shop. Fees will be collected out the front of the clubhouse or shop. You must carry a mask with you and wear it at any time when you cannot keep social distancing.
A temporary local rule has been introduced for the 7th fairway. When taking a drop out of the first gully players can extend the drop distance and take the drop back up on the flat area before the gully.
For those that have not paid their subs – they are now overdue. Please attend to this if your membership is still to be paid.
