TO ALL MEMBERS,
ALL MEMBERS AND GUESTS MUST REGISTER BEFORE PLAYING THEIR ROUND.
First and foremost TMGC are required by the ORC to keep a log of all members and guests that play our golf course - the ORC have to supply Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council with annual usage stats so that we can prove the facility is still worthy of Council funding. We do not operate a booking system so our only method of doing this is by self registration forms.
Furthermore whilst track and trace is still in place for our facility there is that added need.
Thank you all for your co-operation and support. Happy Golfing one and all !
Our decisions right now are not being taken lightly – it is important that we do our utmost to protect the state and quality of our golf course and the safety of our members.
Town Meadow Golf Course remains temporarily closed – with a prolonged period of dry weather now forecast we are really hopeful that we can advise all members that our course will fully reopen very soon. When that decision is made we will update the website accordingly AND send a notification e-mail to all members.
With immediate effect, and due to government guidelines on the Coronavirus (social distancing), and the amount of people who attend these events, we have decided that the monthly club competitions will be suspended until further notice.
At this stage, and unless you are classed as being part of an ‘at risk’ group, the Government are not preventing us from venturing outdoors for some fresh air and exercise. Golf provides a great opportunity to do this provided that you observe the social distancing guidelines below for your own safety and the safety of others.
If you do decide to play golf at Town Meadow it is of course at your own discretion and risk. However, we request that all players observe the following guidelines, adopted by many local clubs in the area:
We will be constantly monitoring the situation and the safety guidelines issued by government regards Coronavirus and will update the clubs position accordingly.
Please be advised that until further notice Town Meadow Golf Course is closed.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but due to the course being water logged and saturated it is felt the most appropriate decision to protect it from further damage.
We will be constantly monitoring the situation and will advise members once the course is reopened.
We hope you understand and ask for your assistance in adhering to the closure and advising others who may not be aware.
Ian Mackin - Chairman
