17th May lockdown restriction easing


Good afternoon all

With the next set of lock-down restriction easing taking effect from 17th May we detail some important information below. We look forward to seeing you at the club soon.

Step 3

From Monday 17th May 2021


One of the biggest changes being the reference to social distancing. This being the statements as follows: –


a).           30 person limit meeting outdoors.

b).          Up to 6 people or 2 households can meet indoors.  You must not interact with anyone outside of your own group (of 30 people outdoors or six people indoors).

c).           social distancing remains in place but if you are meeting friends and family, you can make a personal choice on whether to    keep your distance from them, but you should still be cautious.


So from the Clubhouse scenario, Gary has set up the seating at a 1 metre spacing and on the circular tables this amounts to a maximum of 4 people around each table.  But if up to 6 “friends” want to get closer they can do so. This does not break any rule/guideline/law for a visit to the club. once at that figure of 6 they should not interchange with any other group in the clubhouse. It is the “groups” choice to agree to reduce the social distancing rule. That is unless skgc decide otherwise.



Locker/changing rooms are reopened this includes the shower areas but at reduced capacity.

Toilets and wash-hand basins in locker rooms remain in use

Social distancing measures are to be observed at all times in these areas.

As our facilities are quite restricted in area, we would advise that you still continue to arrive ready to play golf and do any changing in the car park area. The same applies following your game.
