A message from the President     

 

Dear Member,

When the Prime Minister announced the Nations new strapline of “Stay Alert” quickly followed by “You should all go back to work Monday morning”, I had mixed views. One of shear panic - how could a working Nation remobilise within 12 hours and the other, one of shear delight that by Wednesday we were to be allowed back onto our beloved golf courses.

The message from the Prime Minister of “Stay Alert” received mixed reviews from the media. However, my belief is that the responsibility has been devolved to us, the Members, and as such we have to take responsibility for our own behaviour and actions and the possible consequences. This Virus has not gone away and like everything we do in life, there is an element of risk involved. We should not be complacent and need to comply with the guidelines and rules set out for us in keeping everyone safe throughout this unique and difficult time.

Green keeping  staff have managed to maintain their courses throughout the lockdown period and at very short notice had them ready to play. Whilst the team effort in bringing this together has been marvellous, Covid 19 will without doubt have a significant financial and operational impact on all our clubs who we will now need to support through this difficult period.

The Union has  now refunded subscriptions to all our member clubs for 2020. However the Union  like all our Clubs still has operational costs to cover and we hope that it is possible to run some competitions before the year ends and in particular something for our enthusiastic Junior members late in the season .

Please respect your club and fellow member.  Remember Covid-19 is still a very real threat to us all

“Stay Alert, Play Safe, Stay Safe’’

Geoff Mortimer
President
