We find ourselves in unprecedented times.
Based on the Prime Minister's announcements last night and clear guidance from The England Golf Union, we have no option other than to close the course with immediate effect.
We will of course keep this decision under constant review and re-open at the earliest opportunity.
We can confirm that we will continue to maintain the course in the interim so that once we do re-open we can do so efficiently and effectively.
We are also doing everything we can to retain our staff and support them, seeking access to relevant grants and minimising our expenditure. Notwithstanding this we will still be incurring running costs for the club and we reiterate our request for you to all to renew your memberships as normal. Once the pandemic is over we will re-evaluate the club's financial position and if we are in a position to do so, we will seek to offer all members some form of compensation to reflect the fact that there will have been a period of time where no golf was possible.
In the meantime, please look after yourselves and keep well.
