Playing Procedures under COVID-19 Level 2

 

The course, driving range, Golf Shop, clubhouse, toilets and practice areas are all open daily for members and visitors. However, there are some restrictions in place to ensure the safety of everyone under the COVID-19 Level 2 requirements issued by NZ Golf.

• All staff, players, visitors must adhere to general government advice; particularly all recommended hygiene measures. There are hand sanitiser dispensers throughout the club’s facilities.
• Drinking fountains, sunscreen dispensers and ball washers are closed. Please bring sufficient supplies with you.
• Pins/flagsticks are in place, however they are to be left in the hole and not touched or removed by any player.
• Bunker rakes have been removed. Local rules for placing within the bunker apply.
• Score cards are available, and will be printed by the Golf Shop staff. In order to minimise handling of scorecards, players should keep their own score cards, and partner with another player to record that person’s score as the marker. The player should sign their name in the player slot, and record the name of their partner in the marker slot. The player and partner should agree on each other’s scores, before the player signs their card.
• Please hand signed score cards into the Golf Shop and our staff will scan these.
• Everyone must sign in and out, using their membership number, or contact details for visitors, on either of the tablets located inside the Golf Shop and clubhouse. It will print a label that must be attached to either your clothing, golf cart or carried with you when on the premises. This is so we can meet the contact tracing and COVID-19 safety plan requirements. Please remember to sign out when leaving.
• Physical distancing (2 metres encouraged) between all staff, players and visitors should be maintained. Distancing should be maintained on the golf course and throughout all club facilities.
• The café is open, but limited to a maximum of 100 inside at any one time.
• The café is operating table service only inside the building. Please take a seat, and wait to be served.
• The café also provides delivery and pre orders. A menu is displayed outside the Golf Shop and on the 9th tee with a phone number for you to call the café to make an order. Orders will be delivered to a table outside the café for collection.
• Please avoid using cash. It is our preference that members use their house account for payment, and visitors use EFT-POS or their credit card.
