Dear members,

After careful consideration of the current lockdown regulations the golf club will operate as follows, until the lockdown is lifted for Regional NSW and/or more regulations are implemented, at which time we will inform the members of any further changes.

Advice from Golf NSW states you can travel within your LGA OR travel into a neighbouring LGA if it’s within 5km of your home for exercise.

The club will recommence competitions from this Tuesday (17th August).

With the restricted timeslots the Club will be open to play for those members who reside within the Shoalhaven LGA.

Play will be conducted in groups of no more than TWO players per group (unless they are from the same household) and only under the club’s COVID-safe plan.

The club will have a ‘one player per cart’ rule until further notice.

New timesheets will be published on the Club’s online booking system from tonight at 6pm. Please note that all current timesheets will be removed for the week, and you will need to book again for this week. Future weeks’ bookings will remain unless the lockdown is extended.

Members are advised to turn up no more than 15 minutes prior to tee off time and to leave immediately after their game has concluded.

The Pro shop will be open via the side window to process competition payments. Tap and go is the preferred payment option. It will also be able to sell golf items using click and collect and takeaway via the window or front door.

The clubhouse will be closed outside of competition hours.

Social golf, as an exercise, will be allowed subject to only two players per group and that the golfers comply with the social distancing requirements.

Social players must book in at the Pro shop and provide their contact details before they commence play. Normal clubhouse operations will be temporarily closed apart from takeaway purchases for hot drinks and cold drinks, bottles and cans only, and for snack foods including sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, hamburgers, hot chips.

Members can enter the Clubhouse to use the toilet amenities. Also, to order and purchase takeaway drink and foods. Tap and go is the preferred payment option. When you enter the Clubhouse, you must ensure you use QR codes to sign in, that you are wearing your mask, sanitize and social distance.

Please note that takeaways are not to be consumed at the BBQ tables outside the clubhouse. Takeaways are just that and should be consumed away from the clubhouse.

The Board thanks members for their understanding and assistance in adopting these new processes.
