PGC Newsletter 13.08.2020

COVID-19 UPDATEHere we go again! We are in Alert Level 2. Members will have received the email from Leigh-Anne with COVID information from NZGolf about what is expected of golf clubs at this level. You remember how it goes. We know what is expected, so take care of yourselves and sign the contact tracing book when you arrive at golf (as before), OR download the contact tracer app on your phone, register and then it’s easy as. Then you can scan one of the QR codes that are displayed at the club. We don’t want to go to Level 3, that would wreck our season.

  • Please pay special attention to hand hygiene and wash your hands before and after play.
  • Watch out for shared hard contact surfaces. Make use of the hand sanitisers when upstairs.
  • Keep social distancing, and sit together in your groups. Do not congregate.
  • Take heed of any notices displayed at the club.

 MEMBERSHIP CARDS – can you please uplift yours from the notice board in the men’s room.
