Club Guide for Playing Safely


PLEASE INSURE SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES AT ALL TIMES. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE AND GET CLOSER TO ANY OTHER MEMBERS. Covid-19 does not have any friends; Your Safety has to be maintained at all times.

I know we are at the beginning of potentially a long road, but your help at this time is fully appreciated, so thank you for giving up your time and effort.

Players should arrive at the tee no earlier than 5 minutes before their tee time, or 15 mins if using the putting green beforehand.

Entry and exit to the Course

We would like you to enter the course via the arch at the Firle Road entrance or past the pro shop. Exit via the path next to the 18th green and follow signage leading to the car parks.

Social distancing 

All players are reminded of the importance of exercising correct social distancing measures, either for themselves or their playing partners. Gatherings on the putting green, car park and practice areas are not permitted for the time being.

Playing the course

• Please be extra aware of where the group in front and the group behind you are. Pay special attention when you are planning to leave a green and go to the next tee.
• A Potential bottleneck next is the 2nd green and the 3rd tee please be especially mindful when exiting the green and then also when exiting the teeing area.

Last but not least we hope you enjoy your game
