Covid 19

Following the announcement by the government that we are currently at Alert Level 3 and preparing to move to Alert Level 4 at close of business on Wednesday 25 March we have reviewed the priorities for our golf club.

Yesterday’s rain affected the greens scarification process and in view of the government announcement the course will remain closed tomorrow to enable Daniel and his team to complete the process and also spray the greens with a fungicide to reduce the risk of disease.

The course, clubhouse, professional shop and office will be closed for four weeks from Wednesday.

We need to be clear to members that we have been given very clear guidelines and this is the response from the government when New Zealand Golf sought clarification on whether golf is a permissible exercise:

“The move to Alert Level 4 has major consequences for the golf sector. From Wednesday 25 March at 11.59pm, all operations at golf clubs must cease for at least four weeks.
This means all golf courses, practice facilities, clubhouses, pro shops, bar, function and catering facilities must now close. While this a major move for the country, the government is trying to save lives and we urge the golf sector to do all we can to play our part.
While there was some thought that on course solo golf activity might be able to continue, providing a controlled environment that is healthy and safe will simply not be possible for all golf courses and facilities.”

As advised by the government we have communicated with our employees who will stay at home and self-isolate for four weeks from close of business tomorrow.

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate to members when there are any changes. If any member has a question, feel free to contact a member of the Board or Merle on their home number.

Best wishes to all members from your Board and staff, stay safe and well.
We look forward to seeing you when we are able to resume playing golf in a safe environment.
