Coronavirus - Covid-19

The Clubhouse is now Open

All guests will be required to wear a face mask in the Pro Shop from Friday 24th July.

To begin with we will be serving from the downstairs bar, utilising the patio and the function spaces more, to aid social distancing.

Sanitising stations have been placed throughout the building with more due to arrive on back order. New signage will encourage guests to wash their hands, sanitise and adhere to social distancing. While deep cleaning of all touch points have been introduced to the daily cleaning routines.

Assuming each person visiting the premises is from a different household, outside the clubhouse up to 6 people are permitted to gather in a social group, at a minimum of 1+ metre apart but 2 Metres if possible.

Inside the clubhouse, up to only 2 people are permitted in a social group, distancing as above with a maximum of 30 guests at any one social gathering.

We must also maintain a record of all visitors, therefore everyone must register to use the clubhouse facilities each time they enter.

This will be achieved by each person registering their entry to the clubhouse, through the following portal:

Track & Trace

This is a simple process that should only take a few seconds through your smart phone or alternatively you can register at the clubhouse reception. No food or drink will be served to a guest before the registration confirmation has been received, so please familiarise yourself with the process and be prepared to register, as you enter the clubhouse. Remembering that all guests must register and not only the person ordering.

For now the half-way house will remain closed but the bar will be accessible from the patio with an adapted menu, offering take away facilities. Golf shoes are now allowed in the Sandford Lounge.
