Return to Golf - Monday 29th March 2021
Please take a moment or two to read the following information carefully as it carries important details on how we will be opening the golf club once again following the Government’s announcement to end Lockdown 3.
Please do not come to play golf if you or any of your household are experiencing COVID 19 symptoms in line with government advice.
The golf course will re-open on Monday 29th March 2021 with tee times becoming open to book initially for members only on the 21st March. Visitor bookings will open on March 25th. Once we reach the re-opening day Members of Brean Golf Club will be able to book 14 days in advance with visitors having a shorter window of 7 days in advance in which to book a slot.
Under no circumstances should you arrive at the club to play without having made a tee booking in advance.
We will be using 9 minute tee time intervals. Tee times must be booked either online or by telephone to the Pro Shop. Members (and guests) will be able to book up to 14 days in advance of the date of play, with visitors having just 7 days.
Restrictions on group size in accordance with government guidelines, 4 balls are currently permitted. Four-ball groups are permitted on-course with no restriction on the mixing of households. Overall group sizes must not exceed six, including any caddies or chaperones unless the group is made up of two households or fewer. Please remember if you don’t wish others to join your tee time, for any casual golf booking, to block the empty slots out or contact the Pro Shop to do it for you.
Ensure you have sufficient golf balls, markers, tees, etc to avoid having to exchange equipment with others. A click and collect service will be operating from the Pro Shop once again. Order and pay at the window collect from top of steps at the front of the shop.
We recommend you clean all your equipment before leaving home and clean it again upon returning home.
Please only park in alternate spaces in the car park starting from the Captain's spots and then working down each line in sequence. This allows for social distancing.
We request you arrive at the golf club no earlier than 20 mins before your tee time.
A strict procedure as detailed below will be operated for each group to ensure no more than 3 groups of golfers are preparing to play at any one time.
GOLFER PROCEDURE - Whilst at all times observing Social Distancing

Please read and understand the notices posted on the operation permitted on the golf course and please enjoy your game observing social distancing throughout the round between your own playing partners and others using the course.
Upon completion of your round, we politely request that you leave the club as soon as possible using the hand sanitiser station as you pass it on your way back to your car.
In the event of a first aid emergency, full protective equipment will be worn by the first aider. This is because in order to assess you this will involve with first aider coming within 2m of you. Please do not be alarmed but we have to have measures for the safety of the team in place.
