4 balls from Weds, 10m gaps. 2 balls before 8.00 for those who want a faster round, or feel vulnerable.

Golf in two balls to me is soulless and pretty pointless. The bun fight for a tee time was wearing too. 2 x per week with one other person sucks the life out of golf. It's a social game. It's equivalent to whacking a tennis ball at a brick wall.
I think that's a good Idea keeping the option of a few 2 balls

We've had an e mail from the club. We are staying at 2 balls. The course is rammed 7 days a week so to protect it and allow people to continue to get round in 3 hours we're staying at 2 balls for now.

Have they not realised that by adding in more slots they can get more people playing so the course will not stay “rammed “

Now moved to fourballs from 7.00-4.15 at 12 minute gaps which is I think is 43 tee times x 4 per group so the chance for 172 golfers per day plus 7 back nine groups (9 holes only) so 28 spots and 12 fourballs (9 holes only front 9) for evening golf so another 48 spots. I think weekdays with more and more people starting to go back to work that should be sufficient. Not so sure if that'll accommodate demand next weekend but we'll see

Our BRS booking is now back to normal. No restrictions. Still obviously social distancing, clubhouse shut, can order a sandwich from the shop for half way, but golf itself pretty much back to normal.

The only real stipulation is we can’t arrive more than 15 minutes before our tee time, and straight off site afterwards.
