Dear Members

Unfortunately, here we go again! Let’s hope the restrictions are in place for a short period and together we manage to control this latest Covid-19 cluster. We understand that information is changing every day, every hour, and we will continue to follow any guidelines set by health authorities and the State Government. Apologies for the overload of information however the safety and welfare of our Members, staff and guests is our highest priority. Further clarification has been received from the Police Commissioner in regards to the new restrictions enforced from today. A number of events and Club operations have been impacted so I have kept the information concise.


  • Daily competitions – Cancelled immediately and social golf will apply for the next two weeks, as per Golf Australia’s advice from the State Government
  • Golf lessons – Continue as per normal
  • Practice Facilities – Operate as per normal. The small flags on all practice putting greens and chipping greens will be removed until further notice
  • Flagsticks – Players are required to leave the flagstick in the hole at all times. Pool noodles will return to the bottom of cups for easy retrieval of ball
  • Bunkers – Rakes will be removed, preferred lie within 1 club length in bunker. Please smooth over sand with feet or club after play

  • Social golf applies but handicapping will continue from the MiScore App ONLY. Blank scorecards will be available on the Pro Shop counter however they will not be handicapped.
  • IMPORTANT: Commencing Wednesday 18th November you will be submitting your own score via the MiScore App and not your partners’ score.

We remind everyone to exhibit a heightened awareness of personal hygiene and continue to social distance at all times. We encourage you all to use hand sanitisers that have been placed in prominent areas around the Club. We have a number of staff identifiable by badge as Covid Marshalls. Please respect any directions provided by the Covid Marshalls as they help reduce the possible spread of the virus.

We encourage any Members that have been linked to any of the venues listed on the SA Heath Alert (click here) to refrain from visiting the Club for 14 days. Also, if you are feeling unwell please refrain from visiting the Club and see your doctor as soon as possible.

We will continue to monitor accordingly and provide updates to Members on a regular basis as State Government updates are announced. In the meantime, a continued thank you to all Members for your support and continue to stay safe and diligent.
