REOPENING INFORMATION

Please 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 Tier announcement at the end of Lockdown 2.

 

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 Wednesday 2nd December 2020 with tee times becoming open to book initially for members only. Members of Brean Golf Club will be able to book 7 days in advance with visitors having a shorter window of 3 days in advance in which to book a slot. This will be reviewed as time progresses.

 

Under no circumstances should you arrive at the club to play without having made a tee booking in advance.

 

Golfers that live within a tier 2 area (Sedgemoor etc) are permitted to book times and play. However for golfers that reside in North Somerset/Bristol/South Gloucs (tier 3) we politely request that you to follow the advice given on travel for that tier under the Government guidelines. Brean Leisure Park’s current understanding of the advice given is that customers are unable to travel from tier 3 to use our facilities. We understand this is difficult decision to take especially after the month of Lockdown but we ask you to respect this advice. We will not be accepting bookings from any members guests/visiting golfers within Tier 3 postcodes until a point where the advice is reviewed. 

 

Tee times will be in 4 balls everyday and for the time being a trial of 9 minute starting gaps will be used due to the limited daylight we have to deal with.

Should you still wish to play in less than a 4 ball we respect your wishes to do so and request the other slots of the grouping are blocked when you make the booking. Please avoid booking as a single player wherever possible to allow maximum usage of the start times available and if you only want to play a shorter round please consider taking an afternoon tee time rather than a morning slot.

 

The procedure with the car park, golf course and Country Club remains pretty much unchanged to the one we left in early November.

 

  • Please park in alternate car park spots or at least not next to someone getting their equipment from their car.

  • The Changing rooms and showers are not open for use but the toilet facilities are open.

  • Each player must have their own set of clubs in their own golf bag. No sharing of equipment and unfortunately hire sets are not available at this time.

  • Flagsticks must remain in the holes at all times.

  • Bunkers are in play but the rakes have been removed.

  • Buggies (subject to ground conditions) and Trolleys are available to hire and will be sanitised before and after each use. Buggies remain as single occupancy unless from the same household or support bubble.

  • Access to the Pro Shop is limited strictly to 2 people plus staff once again with the same one way system operating. The side window can also be used for service.

  • Masks/face coverings MUST BE WORN inside the Pro Shop and the Country Club as was the requirement before the November Lockdown period.

  • Hand sanitiser units are available at al the entrances to the building and we ask you to respect the one way system and floor markings in use to keep everyone as safe as possible at this time.

 

The Country Club will be open (Kestrel & Lounge) for the time being and operating under the Tier Two guidelines whereby alcohol is only permitted with a substantial meal. We will be offering the Golfers menu in the Lounge and the Restaurant menu in the Kestrel. There is also a festive menu running throughout December. (Please note - you can use the lounge area for coffees and soft drinks without food)

 

  • In Tier Two you can't socialise indoors with anyone you do not live with, or who is not in your support bubble.

  • You can meet in a group of up to six outside - including in a garden, or a public place

  • Pubs and bars can only open if they serve substantial meals. Alcohol can be served with that meal. It will be table service only.

  • Pubs and restaurants can shut at 23:00 GMT, with last orders at 22:00 GMT

  • Collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume (with restrictions)

 

As you can see the restrictions upon us are quite extensive but we will do our best to provide a service to you. Please be aware that we will be operating with a limited team at times so your patience and co-operation will be much appreciated.

 

We all look forward to welcoming you back safely to the Golf & Country Club very soon.
