  • No Guest or Visitors allowed on Sundays.

  • Visitors can now play in 2, 3 & 4 Ball games.
  • Visitor availability is after 12.00 (mid-day) Monday to Saturday
  • Visitors can only book Tee Times 2 days in advance by calling 01782 750577

All players, whether members, guests or visitors must abide by the club’s  policy which states that:…You are now allowed to play in 2, 3 & 4 ball games.  Please help the speed of play by keeping up with the game in front of you! Social distancing rules as per government guidelines are still in place and need to be adhered to.

Members must book a time slot via masterscoreboard.co.uk.  However you now need to be registered and enter a password unique to you.  If you have not received the members’ notice advising how this is done, please contact admin@onneleygolfclub.co.uk.

The following will apply:

  • If you have a booked slot please arrive 10-15 mins before your start time and park as far away from other drivers as possible; allowing for the time taken to get clubs etc out of your car, and changing shoes (car-park only please), this will enable anyone in front to have left the first tee.
  • The clubhouse is now open for limited hours and users must maintain social distancing, following a one-way system for everyone’s protection.
  • If you need to go to the locker room to get your equipment or use the toilet please keep this to a minimum amount of time and access will be one in one out.
  • Please wait by your car until the tee is clear before proceeding to the first tee.
  • The practice nets are now available; please restrict your usage to balls you brought personally and do not share them with anyone else.
  • You may use the practice green if you can keep to social distancing.
  • There will be limited buggies to hire on a pre-booked system  Players are reminded that their use is restricted to one person for social distancing compliance, unless both occupants share a common household; and in competition, only those players who require them on medical grounds may use them.
  • Privately-owned buggies driven by those who meet the conditions laid down in the buggy policy are allowed, subject to course conditions (advised daily on the course information line 01782-750106) but must not be used by people from two households.
  • On the course, hand sanitisers will be available on the first tee and on leaving the 18th green
  • Bunkers may be classed as GUR in social golf; in competitions, players may lift, clean and place the ball within six inches not nearer the hole, and should smooth the bunker after playing the shot.  Smoothing or otherwise testing the sand prior to the shot attracts the general penalty.
  • Flag sticks must not be removed under any circumstances and a restrictor will be placed in the hole to prevent the ball from dropping to the bottom of the cup so that you do not need to touch the flag stick when retrieving your ball.
  • Please keep 2m apart at all times
  • Whilst on the course do not pick up your partner’s ball or any stray balls; if you see dropped equipment such as head covers, please do not lift them unless you have a disposable glove, and deposit them near the next tee you play from.
  • After the round you must leave the course and the club immediately unless using the clubhouse refreshment services.

 

The Committee will continue to review the operation of the scheme regularly, and any changes notified to members directly, with those updates added to the welcome page.
