Coronavirus Policy

 

Coronavirus

The situation regarding Coronavirus is fluid. The Club is following Government advice and how the club reacts will change from day to day. 

Our priority is the welfare of members, visitors and staff.

 

Coronavirus update

Following a meeting of Directors, a number of decisions have been made.

These decisions took account of Government advice, particularly with regard to social distancing and the concern for the welfare of members, visitors and staff.

 

Course

The course will remain open, various safety measures will be in place, e.g. removal of bins, rakes and a continued request that players putt with the flag in. You may wish to agree with your playing partners the distance of ‘gimmes’ in social golf.

Competitions will continue and further information will be available.

Staff will be working as usual, there are a number of projects and course repair that must take place before the season and we wish to maintain the quality of the course in readiness for when restrictions are lifted.

Jim Dawson will be discussing the requirements with the greens staff in relation to their safety, self isolation and work required.

 

Clubhouse

It is intended to keep the Clubhouse open for the use of facilities, e.g. locker rooms.

Bar and Catering will be closed until further notice.

Linda Newton will be dealing with staff the implications for the Clubhouse.

 

Office

This will remain open and be working as normal.

 

Membership

Unfortunately, the problem has hit when subscription fees are due and no doubt members will be considering their position in relation to payment. The decisions we have made have a cost implication especially relating to salaries. Like any other business the Club’s viability is at risk and the decisions have been made in the light of what needs to be done and how we stand when we exit the tunnel we face. It is appreciated that some members will be facing the same dilemma and uncertainties.

I would ask -

  • That those members who can afford to pay their subscriptions do so.
  • Where members are concerned about paying the full amount that they consider using the Direct Debit system.
  • Where members have serious concerns and reservations that they contact their appropriate Captain to discuss a possible solution.

 

The Directors wish to maintain the membership base and are trying to find the best solution for both the members and the Club. We hope the members support us and the Professional in our endeavours as the viability of the Club is at risk.

Cleaning

A regular programme of cleaning and sanitising surfaces such as tables, the bar, keypads, door handles and hand rails is in place.

We are informed that the solutions we use at present are appropriate. Staff have been given instructions on the frequency of cleaning. They will be wearing single use gloves.

Hand Washing

Staff have been instructed to wash their hands regularly and it is expected that members and visitors will do the same when entering the Club. This is in line with Government advice.

Unfortunately, due to shortages we are unable to purchase alcohol-based sanitiser.

Towels in the shower areas have been removed and should individuals wish to shower please bring your own towel.

All magazines and papers have been removed from the bar and lounge areas.

Doors

Where possible doors will be left open, particularly where there are keypads, fire doors will remain closed. As stated previously, regular cleaning will take place.

Course

The course will remain open, various safety measures will be in place, e.g. removal of bins, rakes and a continued request that players putt with the flag in. You may wish to agree with your playing partners the distance of ‘gimmes’ in social golf.
