Thursday, 24th December, 2020

Sport Ireland have today (24th December) issued a further update to the current Level 5 measures, which will remain in place until 12th January 2021. This will require golf clubs to urgently note the following additional points: 
• Participants in sport and exercise in unsupervised/uncoached activity must be from no more than two households.

• Therefore, groups playing on golf courses during these Level 5 measures must be confined to a maximum of two households.

• This means that all tee times must be either two-balls, or alternatively three-balls and four-balls where players in the group are from no more than two households.
Golf Ireland have made Sport Ireland aware of the issues regarding the implementation of this change in the short-term as timesheets for golf club activities are likely in operation for at least the next several days. Golf Ireland are urging golf clubs to update their timesheet booking systems to take account of this changed guidance as soon as possible.

As a result all names on the timesheets for Saturday (26th December) and Sunday (27th December) have been deleted and the proposed Four-Person competition has been cancelled.

To ensure that our Club abides totally with the new restrictions issued today, all timesheets have been reduced to two-balls at eight-minute intervals until 12th January 2021.

Members who have previously booked on timesheets are required to re-enter as a result of the new restrictions.

General Manager.
