Reopening the Course

At this point of time we are unsure as to when we will be able to reopen, due to the key criteria for reopening being 80% first dose vaccination. Unfortunately, it does not look as though that will be reached by Sunday.

As soon as we know for sure we will advise over the coming days, but please be assured we will be open for business as soon as we are given the go ahead.If we are given the go ahead for this Sunday, we will do our best to have the gates open. The morning will be reserved for members, as is normal for a Sunday, however there will be no competition played.
We stress again however, opening Sunday is not a guaranteed option. It all hinges on the percentage of first dose vaccinations.

Below are the restrictions and requirements, as per Golf Australia, that players must follow while at the Edithvale Public Golf Course –

• All Players must reside within 15kms of the club/facility that they play at;
• Masks must be worn at all times unless there is a medical reason not to do so. This includes while playing golf;
• All members and visitors must check in using the QR service;
• There is no competition golf.
• Golf Shop will be open for takeaway food and beverages during play only, there is to be no gathering after a round;
• Clubhouse will be closed.
• Given the complexities around maximum group numbers, play will be in groups of two (2) players, until restrictions ease.

The Club recognizes that these are trying times and asks patience of all members and patrons, these requirements are mandated by the Government and Golf Australia, not the Club/Course.
It is important that the Club, members and patrons strictly adhere to these mandates.
Further COVID restriction changes are scheduled for October 26, at which point Victoria is anticipated to reach the 70% second dose vaccination target.
Future changes will be implemented as further announcements are made by the Government and Golf Australia.
