24th March Corona Virus (COVID-19) Update
Members, Visitors and Societies Please Note
In line with the statement from Golf Wales below, Pontypool Golf club unfortunately has to close the Golf Course and all facilities immediately from the 24th March for the next three weeks.
At the moment during this period we will try to keep the Greenstaff working to maintain the course so that it is available for play as soon as the restrictions are lifted and the golf club will need your continued support on this.
As we receive further details we will keep you informed.
The Board of Pontypool Golf Club thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult period.
The Directors will be manning the office on Thursdays and Fridays until further notice.
STATEMENT FROM GOLF WALES
“Following the Prime Minister’s statement, it is clear that golf clubs, courses & facilities must close with immediate effect.
While golf is a sport with many health benefits, keeping golf courses open is no longer compatible with Government policy which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency. This action is vital and we must stay home in order to contain the spread of COVID-19 and relieve pressure on the National Health Service.”
Wales Golf chief executive Richard Dixon said “These are incredibly testing times for the country and the golf industry but, during this unprecedented period, we will be working very closely with all affiliated clubs. Wales Golf Staff will be working remotely to support and advise clubs as much as possible.”
