At Les Mielles, we are monitoring official advice regarding the Coronavirus situation and have updated our health and safety procedures to ensure that hygiene standards are maintained at this time.
Golfers must maintain a 2 metres physical distancing where possible but always a minimum of 1 metre (with the exception of fleeting contact and close contact).
Two categories of physical proximity are defined as follows:
- 'Close fleeting contact' – where participants are within the minimum physical distance, for that level of activity.
- 'Close contact '– where participants' are in close contact for that level of activity, of each other. This may include a carer or helper assisting somebody with a disability to participate in sport/fitness.
Close contact (as defined above) is now permitted but such contact should be kept to a minimum.
We advised no handshakes at the end of rounds. Movement of flags and rakes are now permitted.
Club Hire and Buggy Hire is permitted with cleaning in place to sanitise all area likely to be touched by hand.
It is advised that golfers should use the hand sanitiser stations provided or use their own hand sanitiser (with at least 70% alcohol content), we recommend carrying some in your golf bags. You will be advised to do so if entering the Pro Shop/Booking Office.
There is no limit to the number of participants taking part in sport, however as a precaution there will be no 4 balls out in the mornings and will only be allowed on special one-off occasions which must be cleared and confirmed in writing by a member of the admin team. If golfers are seen to be joining up on the golf course, our Course Rangers may suspend members from use of the golf course till further notice.
Tee Times on weekends will be staggered where possible in line with the size/amount of bookings to reduce congestion and contact for starting a round and crossovers.
Contact details will be collected for golf bookings participating via our booking system for track and tracing purposes. Masks are no longer compulsory in the Pro Shop/Booking Office.
Prebooking over the phone or online must be done when possible to avoid unnecessary congregation and to be able to gauge if the course is busy.
