Coronavirus Restrictions Eased

Following the First Minister’s announcement, we will see some changes coming into effect on the course from Saturday 17th July 2021.

The recommendation is that players carry and use their own hand sanitiser and that before touching any on course items, any gloves should be removed and hands should be sanitised. After touching an on-course item, hands should be sanitised again.

The following changes will be made:

• Scoring in Stroke Play (Rule 3.3b) – the provisions of Rule 3.3b apply where the player’s score is kept on his or her scorecard by a marker. Certification of the scorecard by the marker and by the player should occur, as per the guidelines of Rule 3.3b(2). This is reverting back to normal procedure of marking and signing another player’s scorecard.

• Flagsticks – there will no longer be a requirement to leave the flagstick in the hole at all times. The pipe lagging that is currently in the hole cup will be removed.

• Hole and Definition of Holed – the temporary local rule changes to the definition of when the ball is holed will be removed.

• Rakes – preferred lies in bunkers will no longer be permissible, and rakes will be returned to the course.

• On-Course Furnishings – ball washers, benches, bins etc. will be in use on the course. All movable obstructions will return to being classified as such, so relief may no longer be taken under Rule 16.1.

• Social Distancing – the regulations will no longer give particular prominence to 2-metre physical distancing outdoors.

Please note that face coverings and social distancing are still required inside the clubhouse, locker rooms and pro’s shop.

Table service is still in operation and the requirement to sign in on arrival in the bar area remains.
