Following the Government announcement this evening (23/3/20) the management committee have met and with heavy hearts have decided that the club house and golf course are closed with immediate effect for three weeks.
This is open for review if further advice is received, and although the rules state that people can exercise once a day alone or with a member of the same household, travel for this is excluded.
For the club to manage who attends and plays golf would be impossible and we are responsible as the management committee for actions on the course, the safety of staff and members, therefore the only option is to officially close.
Matt will also close his shop with immediate affect as he is not supplying an essential product, we hope that both the course and Matt’s shop will be open as soon as possible.
It is a great shame it has come to this, but the management committee believe we have no alternative and hope members will understand and that we will have better news in a few weeks time.
