Course update

Course opening Wednesday 13th May 

under tight restrictions, please see below

UPDATED - Statement - Monday 1st June

Following on from the governments statement on Thursday and receiving further clarification from England Golf on Friday, we are pleased to announce that 3 & 4 ball golf will be returning as of today the 1st June. However, to help with the pace of play and keep people moving on the golf course there will be some restrictions in place on when such groups can play, details of which are listed below.

1, 2, 3 balls – before 1pm
1, 2, 3 & 4 balls – after 1pm

At the moment play will still only be 9 holes, this will give us a chance to assess the new systems put in place to help the club adhere to the governments social distancing rules and the decision on when golfers will be allowed to play 18 holes will be made at a later date.

In order to maximise opportunity for everyone to gain a tee time we are asking for those that have tee times booked to “join up”. Players can do this themselves but must make the pro shop aware of any changes they have made to their bookings and cancel any tee times that would be made available. Laurie will be going through the green fee book over the weekend and, where possible, will be pairing groups up should he feel he needs to.

Unfortunately, there have a number of “no shows” over the past number of weeks from both members and non-members. Can we please remind all golfers that if they cannot make their tee times or do not need their tee times as they have joined up with another group then they must inform the pro shop at the earliest opportunity. It is frustrating having to turn players away as the book is full only for a group not to turn up an hour later or so. The book is being continually monitored and any regular “no shows” may have their booking privileges suspended for a period of time.

Social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to at all times.

Bookings will remain for 9 holes only and all bookings must be made in advance, you must state your full name, your membership category. 

Please do not turn up and hope to play, you will be turned away.

Members have 15 days priority booking, please take advantage of this and non-members may book up to 5 days in advance.
Please only arrive 10 minutes before your tee time and change your shoes in the car park. 

Social distancing measures in place in the Pro shop, please ensure that you adhere to these at all times. 

The changing rooms out of use but toilets are in use, again, please follow the social distancing guidelines.

On the Golf Course

Hole cups will be left above the surface so your ball can bounce off
Do not touch the flag
All rakes and ball-retrievers have been removed
All bunkers are GUR until further notice
Ball washers have been covered up
Benches and bins have been removed
Hazard markers are in place but are now considered immovable objects
Practice areas, including practice nets, will remain closed

Remember you must not meet up with other golfers and ensure that you adhere to social distancing guidelines on the golf course at all times.
We must stress this is just golf for exercise and not a competition!

Thank you from the MP Team and we hope you continue to enjoy your golf.
