Scottish Golf would like to highlight that the Scottish Government continues to monitor its response to the COVID-19 outbreak closely and have not ruled out the re-introduction of restrictions which could see golf paused again if these guidelines are not being followed.
The Golf House Club has issued the following guidance for members for the reopening of the course at Elie:
Tee booking: With us only allowing members to play in the initial phase of lockdown release, there should be no need for booking weeks in advance. With that in mind, times will only be available to members and will only be bookable from 8am one week in advance as per July & August rules. This will also allow us to closely monitor tee time utilisation day by day over the first few days. If it becomes apparent that we don’t have enough capacity to accommodate all players wishing to book, then a limit will be put on the number of games a player can have in the week to ensure no one misses out.
