Ladies, you will have by now seen the recent government advice about “social distancing” and we need to give serious consideration to how this will affect our golfing life over the next few months.
Obviously, the health and wellbeing of all members is our primary consideration. Many of our lady golfers are in a government identified “risk” category but at the same time they are well and active and would wish to keep exercising. Golf, like walking, is one of the activities which it may be possible to continue under certain conditions.
The situation is fast moving and official advice changes almost daily. In the first instance, we have decided to cancel the 12 hole 5-club competition scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday 18th March, while we take time to consider the best advice.
It may for instance be possible, come the competition season, to have no ballots but for players who are well, want fresh air and choose to do so, to play by arrangement throughout the day while still managing to achieve social distancing.
It is likely that the planned supper evening on April 2nd will have to be cancelled.
This is all very disappointing but this is an unprecedented time and our wish is for everybody to stay healthy.
All further updates on these matters will be published on the Blog.
