The bar will be re-open on the 4th of july
An outside bar will be open from 4 July, located at the entrance to the vestibule. Members coming to play will be directed towards the 1st tee as now, but then round to the left to sign in at the outside bar for their tee time. This is where the starting list will be and green fees taken. Then back out and round to the 1st tee by exiting from the front of the “patio” area. Afterwards from the back of the 9th onto the patio. There will be an obvious one-way route. Please keep to it. Unfortunately, the route to and from the bar will pass in front of the Mens’ Locker room entrance. It is therefore impossible to open that up as all the queues will coincide!
The new rules say that we should keep 2 meters apart or “1 meter with risk mitigation where 2 meter is not viable”. While it is a bit confused, it seems that one of the risk mitigations is the wearing of face coverings. Frankly, that will inhibit your ability to chat and drink so we will ask members to keep 2 meters apart from each other and from the bar. Clearly, it is viable for us to remain 2 meters apart outside, but please wear a face covering when approaching the bar and don’t stay long at the bar. Our bar staff will be wearing face shields.
