Following the Government announcement on 15th March regarding the closure of public houses we have decided to close the clubhouse, proshop and putting green with immediate effect. As with all decisions made with regard to Covid-19 our overriding priority remains the health and safety of our members and staff.
Please note special arrangements in place for St. Patrick’s Day. The competition will proceed as planned with no competition fees being charged. The results will be posted on the website as usual. The locker rooms will remain open until 5 pm to facilitate members who wish to collect personal belongings. Entry to the locker rooms will be via the putting green doors only. The showers will not be in use.
From Wednesday 18th March there will be no access to any part of the clubhouse. The course will remain open for casual golf. After 2pm the gate to the front 9 will be locked and access will be by swipe card only. The main gates will close after dark. There will be no access to buggies. Timesheets already set up will continue in place for the playing of casual golf. If you have booked a time already, and do not wish to play, please remove your name so the slot will be available to other members. It is essential that you make a booking on all casual golf days to avoid large numbers congregating at the same time. Timesheets for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays will go live in the usual manner. Timesheets for Mondays and Fridays can be accessed 7 days in advance. Use of the golf course will be restricted to members only.
Juniors can play casual golf in twoballs only. They can also use the junior chipping green but will have no access to the practice ground or main chipping green. Juniors should not congregate on club grounds and should leave on completion of their golf.
Please observe social distancing protocols when on the club grounds and during the playing of golf. To reduce the risk of contamination the pins must be kept in place at all times. The bunkers will be out of play and there will be no rakes provided. The air compressor will be decommissioned.
The office will remain open from Monday to Friday to receive phone calls only. Please select option 4 from the menu when phoning the office.
We are also seeking your continued cooperation on ensuring the safety of all our members. We have updated this policy as follows:
- Remain away from the course if you have returned from any destination abroad in the past 14 days.
- Remain away from the course for 14 days if you have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19.
- Remain away from the course if you feel unwell or are exhibiting any symptoms associated with Covid-19.
All these arrangements are in place until 29th March when the government is due to issue further guidelines. We will be monitoring developments constantly and will send additional updates when necessary. We thank you for your patience during what is a turbulent time and we are sure that the members of Greystones Golf Club will look out for each other and stay safe.
