  • Tee times must be booked in advance through BRS. The system will be available for booking as from 8am, Tuesday Morning. You will be able to book up to 7 days in advance, tee times will be at 10 minute intervals.

  • All rounds MUST start from the 1st Tee.

  • Members are asked to arrive at the club no sooner than 30 minutes before their scheduled Tee time. The practice field is open, however it is restricted to a maximum of 3 people at any one time. The practice putting area is open for use immediately before your round. 

  • Locker rooms / Trolley store,  will remain ‘out of bounds’, however the toilets will be available for use.

  • The Professionals shop is open. If entering the Professional shop you MUST be wearing a face covering.

  • At all times, please maintain safe distance, minimum 2 metres, from anybody you meet at the club.

  • If you are inside any area of the club you MUST have a face covering on, the only exception being if you are eating or drinking.

 

  • If inside the club, you should not socialise with anyone who is from a different household

 

  • If sat on the balcony you can sit with no more than 5 other people in your group.

  • You should remain seated whilst eating or drinking.

 

  • During your round you are asked not to touch the flag sticks. They will be fitted with a device that allows you to retrieve your ball, using your putter head, and without touching anything.

  • All rakes have been removed from the bunkers. If landing in a bunker you can pick and place within 6 inches of where you ball lies. 

  • Everyone is also asked to play with only 1 ball and DO NOT practice several shots from the same area. This is to prevent slow play and also to protect the course from excess damage in the one spot.

 

  • The above guidelines will be constantly monitored, they may be amended as things develop and as and when Government directives change.

 

  • It is also very important to remind all golfers that the course has become increasingly busy with members of the public. Many of these people are wandering off the Public Footpaths and have no concept of where or where not they should be. I would ask you all to be extremely vigilant and take care whilst playing shots, especially if there are members of the public in the vicinity. Please take the opportunity to explain to them, in the nicest possible way, they should not be on the course and point them in the direction of the Public Right of Way.
