6-2-22 - Junior Update

As we move towards the start of the golfing season, we'd like to announce some exciting developments with regard to our junior section.

Junior Leader
One of our newer members, Iain Pagano (iainpgn@aol.com), has offered to help out with some of the work required to run the Junior Section this year. Both of Iain's sons play golf and have been through coaching with Matthew and both are really looking forward to the coming season. Sadly, Iain won't be able to cover all aspects required to run the section, so if there are any parents of junior members, or any members who want to get involved with the Junior Section please contact the Club Secretary.

Restarting Sunday Junior Golf
Starting on the 13th February, we'll be reserving the course for 1 hour from 3pm to 4pm for junior golf. Initially this will be an open session, aimed at juniors of all ages and ability. However, as we progress through the weeks we will start to run small competitions. By making use of forward tees, we will set the course up so that juniors of all ability can play and you don't need a handicap to take part. It will be great to see many of you there.

Junior Competition Day
On Sunday 24th April we will be running a full junior competition. This will be aimed at juniors with handicaps, but we would also welcome those without handicaps. There will be a number of prizes awarded on the day and food will be available from the One O'Clock Gate Kitchen. 

Junior Coaching
Matthew, our Club Professional, will be running a number of group junior coaching sessions through the year. These will cover topics like driving, iron play, wedge play and putting. These will be priced at £30 for 4 sessions. On completion of these sessions, juniors will receive a free bag towel.

For those looking to take their game to the next level, Matthew also offers one to one coaching, priced at £120 for 6 lessons.

Team Golf
We are currently working with the Glamorgan Golfing Union to kick start some interclub games. The Development Leagues will be aimed at clubs who have a sound junior section, but don't have quite enough juniors with handicaps to make up a team. We are awaiting further news on this, but we will keep all our juniors updated with any developments.

28-1-22 - Further Covid-19 Update

Wales completes move to alert level zero

On Friday 28 January, Wales will complete the move to alert level zero. This means:

• Nightclubs can re-open.
• The general requirement of 2m social distancing in all premises open to the public and workplaces will be removed.
• The rule of six will no longer apply to gatherings in regulated premises, such as hospitality, cinemas and theatres.
• Licensed premises will no longer need to only provide table service and collect contact details. The Covid Pass will continue to be required to enter larger indoor events, nightclubs, cinemas, theatres and concert halls.
• Working from home will remain important but it will no longer be a legal requirement.
• Businesses, employers and other organisations must continue to undertake a specific coronavirus risk assessment and take reasonable measures to minimise the spread of coronavirus, which may include 2m social distancing or controlled entry.

Face-covering rules, which apply on public transport and in most public indoor places will remain in force after 28 January, with the exception of hospitality settings such as restaurants, pubs, cafes and nightclubs.

Everyone must also continue to self-isolate if they test positive for coronavirus but the Welsh Government has reduced the self-isolation period from seven to five full days.
People are advised to take two negative lateral flow tests 24 hours apart on days five and six. The self-isolation support scheme payment will return to the original rate of £500 for all those who are eligible.

The next three-weekly review of the coronavirus regulations will be carried out by 10 February, when all the measures at alert level zero will be reviewed.

26-1-22 - Covid 19 Update

Self-isolation period reduced

People who test positive for Covid-19 will be able to leave self-isolation after 5 full days if they have 2 negative lateral flow tests, Health Minister Eluned Morgan today confirmed.
The 2 consecutive negative lateral flow tests must be taken on days 5 and 6 of the isolation period.

The changes are being made after a thorough examination of the evidence from Public Health Wales and bring Wales into line with changes made elsewhere in the UK.
They will come into effect from 28 January, at the same time as Wales is expected to complete the move to alert level 0.

A shorter self-isolation period will support public services and businesses by reducing pressures on the workforce through Covid-related staff absences.

Financial support through the Self-Isolation Support Scheme which will return to the original payment rate of £500 in recognition of the shorter isolation period. People who need support with essentials such as shopping and pharmacy goods will be able to access help through their local authority and voluntary organisations.
