-         Please observe the social distances throughout your visit to the course.

Do not arrive too early at the course and leave immediately after your round.

-         Do not handle the flagstick, stray balls, bunker rakes or any other “course furniture”.

Thank you

            In view of the disruption to the 2020 season caused by the coronavirus outbreak,

the committee have agreed to invite the current captains to extend their appointments

 to the end of next year (2021) subject to ratification at the AGM later this year.

We wish the Captains and Vice Captains the best of luck for what remains of this difficult
