Members Update 19.12.2020

Following the most recent announcement by Mark Drakeford on Saturday 19th December 2020 regarding further restrictions. It has been confirmed by the Welsh Government that Golf Courses/Clubs have to close with immediate effect and will remain closed until further notice. Wales Golf are fighting our corner with the Welsh Government relentlessly requesting that golf courses should be able to stay open with restrictions that are being followed by each member, at the moment the request has been denied, I will update you all of any change.

Please find the link attached to access the latest announcement.

Wales Golf COVID-19 – WalesGolf

The Course has been closed since Monday 14th December due to the constant rainfall leaving the course very wet and unsafe underfoot. This decision is never taken lightly to close the course to our members.

The Clubhouse will remain closed whilst restrictions are in place, so Mell and Heather will remain on furlough. Barry, Percy and Glen will continue to work reduced but flexible hours to maintain the course when the weather permits.

The Office is now closed until further notice. The phone and emails continue to be diverted to Donna at home so If you require any assistance please ring 01646-621453 or email secretary@southpembsgc.co.uk

Thank you to all the members that supported the Christmas raffle, and congratulations to all the winners.

The 130 Club December draw took place on 12th December, congratulations go to former Captain Michael McNally who won the first prize of £500. Should anyone wish to join the 130 Club for a chance to win £500 in the draw each quarter, please contact the club – all proceeds raised from this are put towards course improvements.

I would like to thank you all for your patience and continued support in these trying times.

On behalf of Myself, The Directors and Main Committee we wish you and your families A Happy Christmas & best wishes for 2021.

Stay Safe all!

Bob Gale

Club Captain
