Course Re-opened

Guidelines

Following the latest Government announcement and England Golf guidelines the course and shop will re-open from 0730 13th May. The club house will remain closed, except for the shop and toilet at the bottom of back stairs to the 19th. A tee times booking system is in operation to ensure access to the course is managed in an organised and responsible manner and to allow a safe playing environment. Asking members to book tees is a temporary solution to stagger arrival times to meet social distancing requirements on arrival at the course and before play. Do not gather in groups in the car park or around the front of the club house. The situation continues to be extremely challenging and we all will need to adapt accordingly. The course will be open from 0730 – 2100 (The car park barrier will be locked at 2100). Please
note that if you choose to play during these times when the shop is closed you do so at your own risk as there will be no club official on site

Tee booking 

  • Tees must be booked to play. Tees can be booked between 0730-1930.
