Royal Hospital School Golfing Society

Precautions for playing golf from 19th July 2021

The relaxation of social distancing laws from 19th July 2021 allowed more discretion on how golf courses manage access to their course and the precautions golfers are encouraged to take. Under the guidelines individuals are encouraged to take responsibility for the precautions they take to protect themselves and those around them.

The overriding priority continues to be taking sensible precautions to minimise the risks to everyone involved with the golf course and the school.

The Society has decided to continue operating the Tee Booking Schedule.

Golfers are reminded that they are only allowed on the course if they have pre booked a tee time, plus for 18 holes a second 9 tee time a realistic interval after the first tee time. The names of all golfers should be clearly noted on the booking schedule in case they are subsequently needed for contact tracing. This applies to all golfers including society members, school staff and school pupils. The names of any invited guests should be included with an indication of their guest status

Key points for playing golf include:

- Players should follow all national guidance relevant at the time of their round
- Players should not have any Covid 19 symptoms, be in self isolation or in quarantine after returning to this country
- Before leaving home check your name is on today's schedule at your reserved tee time
- Take care to avoid unnecessarily close contact especially in the car park, near the practice net, around tees and around greens
- Sharing equipment, drinks or food is not advisable
- The school security staff will be monitoring golf activity

Players must inform the Society Secretary of any post round health issues or Covid 19 symptoms at the earliest opportunity
