COVID-19 Update 31/03/2020

 

It is with great sadness the Management Committee announces the closure of our course and clubhouse until further notice. 

We have agreed to adopt the recommendations communicated by Golf Australia. We are all hoping this is for a short time and we return to our great game all but a little rusty but with new enthusiasm. 

We wish to thank everyone who has shown us so much support over the last few weeks as we implemented the many changes required for us to continue playing golf for as long as we were able to. 

The health and safety of our staff, members and community are of paramount importance to us and we wish you all the very best whilst we navigate through uncertain times.

Please stay safe.

Update 25/03/2020

We finally have some great news for our club. As per the advice received from

Golf Australia (for which I have included an extract below) we are able to play

golf following the guidelines given. The full directive can be found on

www.golf.org/covid-19.

 

25/3: Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr. Jeanette Young and the Queensland Government Director-General, Department of Justice and Attorney-General, David Mackie have provided advice to Golf Australia that Queensland Golf Clubs can operate on their Golf Courses from Wednesday 25th March, 2020 in accordance with National Cabinets approved measures relating to outdoor gatherings which includes but is not limited to having groups less than 10 people and maintaining a 1.5m spacing. 

Licensed golf clubs can sell take-home liquor to their members. The liquor must be consumed away from the club. The consumption of the liquor on the premises e.g. in the club, around the club house, or on the course, is not allowed.

We sincerely thank you all for your patience whilst we navigate our way

through this unprecedented event.
