Golf May Be Back

Dependent on the state government announcement on recreational activities next Monday the 11th of May, it is hoped that golf, albeit as we know it, will return to Royal Yea for members only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Due to socialising distancing now inherent due to the Corona Virus, golf will have to be conducted differently both for casual and competitive situations for the time being.

Golf – Member’s Days – Only Members on Wednesday and Saturday.

The Clubhouse will be closed and try not to gather in large groups both before and after playing. The golf program will have to be altered slightly. For the Men it will be Stableford on Wednesday 13th and also on Saturday – 1st Rd of the N.J. Murray Trophy. The Ladies also will be playing Stableford on both days. Some of the bigger events missed during April will be hopefully rescheduled later in the year.
