After weeks away from the Club we understand how keen you will be to get back playing. To ensure we give all Members the greatest opportunity to play we have decided to implement a re-opening policy that is as fair as we can make it bearing in mind the restrictions that we are operating within.

· All Member names must be given when making a booking and it is up to each member to ensure that they have confirmed all names that they are booking for.

· Members must turn up no earlier than 15 minutes before their tee time and get changed in the car park.

· Staff will be on duty around the car park, 1st tee area and on the course to ensure players match the booked tee sheet, offer help & assistance & to ensure social distancing rules are adhered to.
