Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 23rd March 2020
The Golfing Union of Ireland, Irish Ladies Golf Union and the Confederation of Golf in Ireland ask that all golf clubs note, act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by the Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland) and the National Health Service (Northern Ireland) in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. For you and the protection of others we ask for cooperation in adhering to HSE Guidelines, social distancing advice and other precautionary measures we have taken. In the interest of safety for our staff, members and visitors our first preference from now on is that debit card/contactless or credit card payment is used for competition fees, green fees and all other transactions. Alternatively, members are requested to put the right amount of cash in an envelope and write their name, date and fee on the front of it and post into a dedicated box in the Kiosk. Going forward we have decided to restructure the timesheets into 10 min intervals where possible or insert buffers times as required. It may also be necessary to implement a temporary local rule permitting computer score return only for singles competitions thereby eliminating the use of scorecards. We will act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by the Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland). These are unprecedented and anxious times for everyone. It is important that we all work together, following the advice of experts, in controlling the spread of COVID-19 infection. Thank you for your co-operation, stay safe. HSE: www.hse.ie
One of the most important things any golfer should possess is insurance. For a fee of just €30, cover will include the following: Golf Equipment, Personal Clothing, GPS/Electronic Golfing Aid, Personal Liability etc. You can check the exact details of the cover on the brochure displayed in the kiosk. Closing date is this week, 25th March. For convenience credit card payments can be taken over the phone.
