Competition golf to recommence

The local golf competition is scheduled to start again this weekend with a revised format.

It’s over a month since the last competition game of golf was played and a lot of players having been champing at the bit for the course to open again.

Some players have kept in form by playing a bit of social golf on the front half of the course as the back nine holes were affected by the rain early this month.

Working bees on Saturday and Sunday were  well represented by both ladies and men golfers who are keen to start playing again and helped to clean up the course.

The fairways are in surprisingly good condition.

Competition starts on Saturday however due to the Covid-19 regulations, there are restrictions which have been issued by NSW Golf which are to be observed in both competition and social golf.

Play in groups of two. Do not hit up on a group in front of you and do not share a tee with another group.

No sharing of golf carts.

Only one set of clubs on each golf cart.

Adhere to the 4m² distancing rules as a minimum.

There will be no presentations at the conclusion of competitions.

Minimise contact with golf-related infrastructure.

Ensure personal hygiene standards are maintained at the highest level.

Don’t attend golf club/course if you feel ill or have been in contact with someone who is sick.

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands.

Do not shake hands.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because your hands touch different surfaces and can easily pick up viruses.

Saturday’s game for the men will be a Stroke event for the second round of the Captain’s Trophy competition.

Players will assemble on the course and cards will be official and entered into the computer.

Sunday’s event will be an Individual Stableford.

The men’s Epiroc Cobar Open originally scheduled for this Sunday will now be held in October.—Out of Bounds
