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 in indoor settings insists that people do not socialise indoors with anyone other than members of their own household. Therefore a simple rule of one household per table has been introduced at the Club
In outdoor spaces, the 'rule of six', applies, which allows players to sit in a group no bigger than six but should not mingle with others.
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-compliance 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.
