We’ll Be Back!
GOLF COURSE OPEN / CLUB HOUSE CLOSED GOLF COURSE OPEN
Dear Members and Guests,
I hope that everyone is safe and healthy. It is important that we all do the right thing so we can get back to our normal lives as soon as possible. Please take notice of our State and Federal Governments directives at all times. If we do we will get through this crisis sooner. At this time golf can continue to be played under strict rules and social distancing measures. The ability to exercise safely, the ongoing mental health of our members and community and the NSW Government decision to allow golf to be played were all factors in the continuation of Golf courses remaining open.
Please ensure that when playing on the course you maintain your social distancing as required by government regulations and adhere to the temporary rules of play at Tura Beach Country Club.
By abiding with the regulations it will hopefully enable us to continue to provide golf on our course.
Recently NSW Police have visited golf courses and checked on the compliance with the laws so please comply at all times. It is up to us all to do the right thing. Enjoy your golf, stay safe and healthy, thank you for your understanding and assistance during the period.
We are selling TAKEAWAY BEVERAGES from CLUB RECEPTION every Saturday 10am to 5pm and every Sunday 12;00-5:00pm. Please assist the Club and purchase your takeaway beverages from us.
CLUB HOUSE TEMPORARY CLOSURE – As per government direction we have temporarily closed our Club House with the exception of our Golf course. Although we are closed, Club Management are working on getting the Club ready to reopen as soon as permitted. All Club Staff are being regularly communicated to and all are being offered services and assistance to get them through this crisis. We look forward to having ALL of our regular staff back on deck soon.
We will do our best to keep you informed as regularly as possible with updated information as it becomes available. Please keep up to date by visiting our website or following us on Facebook. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the Club on 64959002 if you have any questions.
