Howley Hall Golf Club COVID-19 Statement 18/3/2020


Club Statement:

Howley Hall Golf Club are having regular reviews which will be communicated both in the clubhouse, on the club website social media channels.

Today's review resulted in HHGC trying to continue business as usual - (as much is reasonably possible).

The health, wellbeing and safety of our members, visitors and staff is our utmost importance.

Whilst we are very much aware and understand the current concerns about COVID-19, we want to reassure you that we are monitoring the developing situation extremely closely, and we are following the advice issued by the World Health Organisation, Government Agencies and Public Health England.

Currently we have had no actual or suspected cases of COVID-19 at HHGC. If this situation changes, we will act quickly to protect our members, visitors and staff. Should anyone receive a confirmed diagnosis, we would appreciate it if you could let us know so we can act accordingly.

To support this we would ask that you take the following steps in line with GOVERNMENT ADVICE:

* Please do not come to the club if you have a persistent, new cough, or a fever (temperature of 37.8 degrees centigrade or above)
* Please do not come to the club if you live with, or have come into contact with, anyone who is showing COVID-19 symptoms
* Please follow the most recent advice regarding self isolation
* Wash your hands on entering the club, and before and after eating & drinking
* Always carry tissues with you, and use them to catch all coughs and sneezes; please then bin the tissues and wash your hands thoroughly
* Avoid unnecessary close contact with each other, including hand shakes

We will continue to review and adjust the food & drink offerings within the clubhouse in line with recommendations:

* With immediate effect we are instituting social distancing within our public areas
* There will be a minimum of 2 metres between tables, please do not push them together
* You are welcome to use the entire club house
* Ladies & gentleman's locker rooms, toilets and pro shop will remain open
* Bar & Catering offerings will continue with usual opening hours until further notice
* We would encourage you to pay by contactless method of payment wherever possible
* The Half Way House facility will be closed in its entirety until further notice.
* Internal doors within the clubhouse will be wedged open to eliminate unnecessary touch points. With this in mind please be aware of non members entering the club for security reasons and report any suspicious behaviour to a member of the clubs staff

Currently all competitions will go ahead as normal.

We will continue to review the latest advice, and ensure that we adapt our approach accordingly. Our objective is to keep you, our members, visitors and staff safe.

Your patience, understanding and support at this difficult time is ver much appreciated.

The golf course will remain open, however we do ask that all member & visitors follow the below guidance:

* DO NOT SHAKE HANDS - shaking hands is one of the easiest ways of passing on the virus. Forego the traditional 1st and 18th hole handshake, elbow bumps & club taps work
* LEAVE THE FLAG IN - you are now allowed to so please leave the flag in to limit the spread, but please take care of the hole when removing your ball
* KEEP YOUR DISTANCE - adhere to the practice of "social distancing", a minimum of 2 meters from you playing partner/s throughout the round, as well as pre and post golf
* DO NOT SHARE EQUIPMENT - only you should be handling your own clubs and golf ball during your round, pick your own ball up at all times
* DO NOT PLAY IF YOU FEEL UNWELL - if you have any symptoms please stay at home, this will prevent the spread of infection & minimise the risk to others
* WASH YOUR HANDS - before & after your round make sure you wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds, if possible carry and use hand sanitiser.

Above all please continue to use the clubs facilities at this current time and the club will communicate and further updates accordingly.

Stay safe & best regards

The Board of Directors
