Observe physical distancing at all times.

Flagsticks to remain in the hole and must not be touched. There will be a device on the flagstick for retrieving your ball safely from the hole.

Post round, hands may be washed and sanitised in the toilet facilities and golfers must then return straight to their cars.

As always we appreciate your support for Thurles Golf Club.

Enjoy your long awaited return to golf.
