Course Re-Opened

We are delighted to announce that as per the Government instructions  on Sunday 18th October, Glen Waverly Golf Course opened at 9.00am this morning.

Golf returns under the following guidelines:

  • Groups of 2
  • Masks must be worn
  • Flags remain in hole
  • No rakes for bunkers
  • No sand buckets

The course has confirmed that the members time slots have been allocated accordingly for Competition days, so first tee off for weekdays 6.30am and weekends 6.15am. As per Covid guidelines, please  maintain social distancing and if you are feeling unwell, stay at home.

At this stage, official competitions are still not allowed, however scores are allowed to be entered for handicapping purposes.

Until further notice, stableford rounds will be played. One card per group of two and make sure you follow competition rules and clearly write yours and your partners names and golflink numbers with your scores. When your round is completed verify the scores with your playing partner and place in the GWGC box located in the pro shop.

The clubrooms remain closed until further notice.

We are anticipating large numbers of members in the coming weeks, especially on Saturdays. Notwithstanding that the first group will now be able to tee-off at 6.15am (and not 7.15am as was the case in winter), we expect that being forced to play in groups of 2 will still cause some delays.  The Committee is considering options for dealing with this issue, but in the interim, please note that our Saturday morning tee block has been extended.  We ask that our members remain patient during this period until groups of 4 are allowed.

We are looking forward to seeing all our members back on the course and watch this space for further updates on competitions and Club Championship announcements.

As previously advised, it is the Committee’s strong preference to conduct the Meeting at the Club, but it may ultimately be necessary to conduct the meeting electronically if the restrictions do not allow for a physical meeting.
