2021 Season Update New!!



2021 Season Update

The new golf season is almost upon us and it is disappointing to report that, almost a full year since the first coronavirus lockdown, we are still impacted by this awful pandemic.  We feel the effects of this in our daily lives whether at home or at work and of course, here at Colville Park.

The work on the course is carrying on and we can all see the drainage work which is underway and we will surely see the benefit of this work as the season progresses.  A provisional fixture list has been prepared, based on restrictions easing and will be posted on the website in the next day or two.  We welcome the announcement this week that we can resume fourball play.  Since the clubhouse facilities and locker rooms are out of bounds until the end of April (reportedly) the matchplay singles and foursomes events will not take place this season.   A decision on the qualifying matchplays will be made later.  

As we follow Scottish Government and Scottish Golf rules and today we were reminded that travel no more than 5 miles out with your local authority is what is allowed for exercise (golf) and this applies to members and members' guests and we must comply with track and trace requirements and the need to pre-book. 

We will not be allowing visitors at this time but members’ guests will continue to be accepted (must be booked).  As the daylight hours become longer we will constantly be adding times to the booking system and the twilight times will shift as we continue to monitor member participation as the restrictions ease.  As of Wednesday March 17th, twilight golf will be times after 3pm.  Current playing restrictions can be found on the website (http://colvilleparkgc.co.uk/post-detail.php?param=188).

The clubhouse, locker rooms and toilets remain closed and booking in will still take place at the clubhouse entrance.  Can we ask all members to be mindful of the behaviours we must display while we are on and around the golf course….Social distancing, wearing face coverings, not touching flagsticks and please arrive at the appropriate time and leave as soon as your round is complete.

 I hope we can return to some normality soon, but in the meantime stay safe and enjoy the 2021 season.
