On Wednesday 13th May, Drax Golf Club reopened the course in line with guidance from Governing Bodies. In turn, certain restrictions are now in play to ensure the safety of our staff, members, volunteers, guests and visitors.

Please read the below guidance very carefully before playing golf at Drax. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email, draxgolfclub@outlook.com 

  • Tee times MUST be booked. Priority booking has been allocated to members who can book through the BRS members app or our website. Visitors must book through Golf Now/BRS or our website using the booking page.

  • When you arrive in the car park please leave a full car width between you and neighbouring vehicles.

  • Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your tee time.

  • Initially, we will have a starter to monitor the first tee, please follow their instructions at all times.

  • The course has been set up so that the holes are only just below the surface so you can retrieve your ball without touching the hole.

  • Please do not touch the flagsticks while putting out.

  • The hole liners have been inverted so that the ball only drops a little below the surface of the green and can easily be retrieved without touching the flagstick.

  • Bunker rakes have been removed - please smooth the sand as well as you can using your feet or club.

  • Preferred lies are available in bunkers within 6”, no nearer the hole.

  • There is a gel dispenser next to the first tee that should be used before your round starts and as you leave the course.

  • Please ensure you do not share any equipment on your round and do not pick up your partner’s clubs or balls at any time.

  • As you know, you can only play in two balls, and this must be strictly adhered to. Course wardens and greens staff will be checking to ensure this is the case.

  • Please also ensure that you observe social distancing at all times, especially as the course is going to be busier than usual at first and you may catch up the group in front.

  • Do not go back to play again if a ball is lost or unplayable.

  • Please do not step onto a tee where the previous group is still teeing off, and do not pressure them to let you through. We will be monitoring any pinch points to judge whether we need to put in a break.

  • Once your round is complete, return straight to your car. Do not wait for the following groups to return.

Much of what has been recommended is reliant on the common sense of players and we are sure you will all follow the guidelines to ensure that golf remains open for the duration of this unprecedented event.

Thank you for your continued support, and please do not hesitate to contact a member of the committee if you have any concerns or queries.

Best wishes and stay safe,

The committee.
