Woo hoo, as a current non-member I wasn't sure if I'd have a chance, but a club I was close to joining just pre-the closures has booked me on for Friday after work I'll likely bring the DD forms home as well.
Our BRS opened at lunch time, 2 balls, gizmo in the hole you can operate, social distancing, 3 rounds per week restriction and tees open for 7 days at a time.
managed to get 3 rounds Thursday morning, Sunday morning and Tuesday at 5pm after work Massive adrenaline rush after booking them, its the small things that make the routine acceptable.
Our tee booking opened at 11:30 this morning on IG, although the club have yet to notify us.... We had to agree to a Covid terms and conditions, which were pretty basic. Can only book two tee times, each for 9 holes (front or back) up to 7 days in advance as a two ball or single. Can see a loophole in it, but the IG system appears to have crumbled as it is constant retry to get back on to it. Fortunately I have 16:00 tomorrow, and 16:00 on Thursday booked.
Great news. We are opening up on 18th. 2 balls, 12 minute intervals, 0800 till 1748. Bookings open 2 days before, till we see demand etc.
So, answering the topic, the wife and me will be 0936 on 18/5/20.
We are too, our booking was supposed to start at 13:00 but no-one can get it. It looks like they sensibly staggered the clubs initial booking slots hopin to spread the load but clearly hasn't been enough and I suspect that there are now thousands of golfers from many clubs wanting to get their slots in for tomorrow. Still, it's only a game, I'll live to book another day, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things and all might be reolved soon.
Edit: Indeed it was resolved soon, I'm playing golf tomorrow
Played yesterday. No Buggy. Wanted the exercise. That was a mistake, phone racked up 18,000 steps, and I burnt my heed.
Consistency is key in golf of course, so the ten on the tenth, plus 2 birdies on the back nine were a real pointer that my game is steady,
I'm not walking 18 again until next winter, especially with the boy. He's only ten and it's too far to be trekking round, so we'll probably stick to nine holes for the rest of the summer.
Was a good day out though, and both our games don't seem to have suffered too much despite the lay off.
Booking opening at 8pm each evening for a rolling week ahead. Max two bookings a week in peak times 7:30am-2:30pm. Members able to play during the week are 'encouraged' to do so leaving weekends available for those working '9-5' weekdays. We'll see. If you see a slot with a singleton, then we are encouraged to contact that singleton before booking with him
