We’re the same, but I think that’s because everyone, without thinking too long, booked today and then Friday, which takes them out of Saturday on the alternate day rules, so there’s quite a lot of gaps, even early Saturday morning!
There’s the odd gap off the 1st on Sunday but the 10th has loads of tee times free.
I think with many 7 day members furloughed or working from home, they’re not having to scrap over weekend times and can play during the week when they wouldn’t normally be able to, so it’s took the pressure off the weekend slit’s.
Sorry, I meant more the continued lockdown in Scotland than golf specifically preventing a second peak. I have always said I think golf is as safe as it gets when it comes to sport, and I would be playing with my Fiancée who I live with to start with anyway.
Don't have any inside info, just the fact we are around a week behind England in respect of the R number and that our hospital admissions / critical care numbers are going down.
There will be pressure behind the scenes to get the courses open up here and by announcing it early next week for the following Monday it still gives NS time to pull the plug if the numbers were to creep up again prior to 25th.
Only my opinion but I reckon with Wales following suit yesterday we won't be that far away now.
'There was no centrally imposed lockdown to curb the spread of infection, although many theatres, dance halls, cinemas and churches were closed, in some cases for months.
Pubs, which were already subject to wartime restrictions on opening hours, mostly stayed open. The Football League and the FA Cup had been cancelled for the war, but there was no effort to cancel other matches or limit crowds, with men's teams playing in regional competitions, and women's football, which attracted large crowds, continuing throughout the pandemic.'
So whilst there was indeed a second wave that was worse than the first wave, there really wasn't really a 'quarantine'.
I will be optimistic and say toward the end of May.
I can imagine there will be people caught on our course, as there were people caught when the course was flooded, who hadn't started anywhere near the clubhouse and then said they didn't know it was closed.
Absolutely gutted to receive this email this morning, anybody else in a similar situation?
It is a resort course but has a membership that has grown strongly over the last 12-18 months and we must have around 300 members....The members Whatsaapp group is on fire this morning and people are not happy! Since had further comms to say it will likely be weeks if not longer until the course is open!
I would like to hear if others are in similar position and is there anything the membership could do to force them to open???
We're full off the first and nearly empty off the 10th. But I suspect that since the booking system defaults to the 1st most people didn't want to try and change the page to the 10th tee in case you got kicked out of the system!
We can go on the play the back 9 as long as we book into the system just so the club can monitor the numbers
