New rules and how they affect golf days and groups
I hope you can appreciate changes from the government in terms of hosting events will have an effect on how we operate as a Club until further notice.
The new legislation, 'rule of six', states that players should not be in groups bigger than six and they should not socialise with anyone else outside that group. A golfing event is classed as a sport, not a social gathering, therefore, restrictions while the game is being played are not applicable, however, we will need to make changes to the pre and post-golf arrangements.
Our policy moving forward is that golf events are still welcome with the following restrictions:
We would respectfully ask that that you fill in the below form and tick that you agree to adhere to these conditions. As the above is part of legislation the Club staff have been instructed to remind anyone who are not adhering to the these stipulations of their responsibilities and will in extreme cases of non complience ask people to leave. We would like to avoid this happening at all costs.
In-spite of all these additional restrictions all the staff at Royal Birkdale will do everything to ensure an enjoyable experience and we very much look forward to welcoming you to the Club for your event.
