POLICY & PROCEDURE UPDATE

These are extremely challenging times for all of us and it is our collective belief that golf when managed accordingly by our staff through recommendations from Public Health Authorities and strictly followed by investors, members and guests, GOLF is as safe as any activity outside of complete self-quarantine or isolation.

If you feel any symptoms such as Cough, Headache, Fever or Difficulty Breathing “PLEASE STAY HOME”! We have put a concentrated effort and focus on improved safety measures and reduced contact points and we want to remind everyone to wash their hands often, and don’t touch your face, especially if you come in contact with any potential infectious contact points.

Please note, we have been experiencing a higher volume of calls than usual, with a reduced staff team – if you are unable to connect please leave a voicemail with your contact number stated clearly – we are checking voicemails regularly throughout the day and will get back to you ASAP.
