Clubhouse Opening 4th July


Following the government’s announcement that bars and restaurants can open, the Committee are very happy to announce that the clubhouse lounge and restaurant will re-open on the 4th July. Clearly, everyone MUST follow the rules set down on social distancing etc. and therefore you will see a number of changes to allow the club to keep staff, members and visitors safe.

• The new procedures are attached for the consumption of both drinks and meals and will be posted around the clubhouse.
• Sanitiser containers will be distributed around the clubhouse and toilet areas and on each table.
• All doors will be kept open to limit the need for contact and all non-essential items will be removed for the same reason.
• The coffee machines will be in use but will bear a notice that you must sanitise the parts that you touch, sanitisers will be left nearby.
• A one-way system for entry and exit to the lounge will be set out, for the men entry will be via the men’s locker room and for the ladies via their locker room.
• Once drinks are served you must exit the queuing area and find a table, tables will be marked with the maximum occupancy.
• Once all tables inside are taken, drinks should be consumed outside and ONLY at the tables provided.
• A bin will be set aside outside to dispose of plastic containers, but actual glasses may be used in which case they will be collected by the bar staff.
• The Club respectfully request that patrons do not overstay their welcome to be fair to other members and visitors as they finish their round as space is limited.
• Please note the area immediately in front of the Clubhouse and Pro shop MUST be kept clear.
• Should any member or visitor later find that they show the symptoms of Covid-19 they should inform the NHS AND Gosforth Golf Club.

Please act responsibly in and around the clubhouse, observe social distancing and the Club’s rules for your own safety and that of others.

However, the Committee ask that you follow the rules but more so ENJOY yourself.
