COVID-19 Guidelines for Play

In accordance with the UK Government, Public Health Wales, and Wales Golf advice, the Directors and Management Committee have agreed to open the course on the following conditions:

The course is open to MEMBERS AND VISITORS from 7.30am until 8.30pm, Monday to Friday, 7.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday and 7.30am – 5.00pm on Sunday.

Members and visitors are allowed to play in single, two or three balls providing all golfers reside in no more than two households.

Tee times must be booked on the BRS system, and will be checked by staff on the course. Visitors must book their tee times in advance of playing.

Members and visitors must adhere to the following guidelines. For members failure to do so will lead to immediate suspension and will be subject to disciplinary action. Visitors who fail to comply with the guidelines will be asked to leave the course.

Wales Golf has made it clear that failure to adhere to these conditions and the guidelines below may result in closure once again.

  • Members and visitors with any colds, coughs or any symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend the Club. If you do you will be asked not to play.
  • Changing rooms as well as other parts of the Clubhouse are closed until such time as it is safe to reopen. You must change your shoes in the car park.
