· Members & guests (over 18) will be required to show proof of indemnity. This will be scanned for verification purposes. A register of members who have presented this proof will be maintained in the bar.

· A maximum of 6 persons aged 13 or over are permitted at a table. This limit of 6 does not include accompanying children aged 12 or younger.

We are very much looking forward to a return to indoor dining in the club and your support in complying with the above will ensure a safe and enjoyable return for us all. Outdoor dining will of course remain weather permitting!

Finally, the club have the option under new guidelines published by Golf Ireland, to return to the use of rakes in bunkers and the ability to remove the flag.

The Covid Committee and Club Captains have reviewed the published guidelines and agree that we will continue as we are at present for health and safety reasons. We will continue to review the situation regularly and notify members when this no longer pertains.
