King James VI Golf Club Coronavirus Update 19 March 2020

As you are aware further measures have been introduced by both the Scottish and UK Governments in trying to deal with the spread of Coronavirus.

At King James VI we are monitoring the situation and would ask that members continue to enjoy their golf, however the following steps should be adopted in the final weeks of Winter League.

  • Members and Groups should not gather cards and draw playing partners.
  • Mark your own card and only sign/check cards at the Computer (Wipes are available)
  • Try and avoid cash sweeps – keep a note and settle up at a later stage if you must.
  • All bunkers are now GUR.  Pick up your ball and drop outside bunker.  Do not handle rakes.
  • When playing maintain a “social” distance of 2 metres from playing partners
  • Do not remove flags from the hole. Try and carefully remove your ball if possible, with the gloved hand. From tomorrow the Greenkeeping team will semi-fill holes with sand to make retrieving your ball easier.

The following steps should also be followed :

  • Please do not enter the Locker Rooms and Toilet areas if you cannot maintain a 2-metre safe distance.

In the Clubhouse

  • We will remove some of the tables and chairs from the Clubhouse Lounge to allow more free space.
  • If you wish to purchase food or drinks please do not queue at the bar, try and allow fellow members ahead of you to place orders and to then move away before placing your own order.

Please remember to wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and where possible avoid touching doors with your hands.
