On the Course
Do not arrive at the first tee more than 5 minutes before your tee time
Bunkers will be GUR with a dropping zone. There are no rakes in the bunkers, smooth over the sand with your foot as you exit the bunker to retrieve ball.
Do Not touch or Remove the Flag stick While Playing.
The cups will be adapted to prevent total drop of ball and you must only retrieve your own ball from the hole. The use of “gimmees” is encouraged.
Following play of a hole, do not enter the next teeing ground until all the members of the group in front have played their tee shots and exited the teeing ground.
If your ball is lost, unplayable, or in a penalty area, do not double back to replay your shot. Instead, use an option that allows you to keep your position on the course.
Always maintain a safe distance from the group in front but avoid slow play.
After the Round
Golfers must leave the club immediately after completion of the round to avoid gatherings.
While the Council and Staff of Enniskillen Golf Club do their best to ensure your safety and to prevent the spread of Covid-19, you are expected to take responsibility for your own safety and the safety of others.
Use the toilet facilities before you leave home.
Bring your own hand sanitiser to the course and use regularly during the round.
Please treat EVERY surface as a potential area for contact with the virus. Avoid contact with anything that someone else may have handled.
