    Full timesheets might be a bit misleading. We’ve been full too but in 2 balls off one tee.

    Ditto. Fields are up about 10% on 2019.

    We almost hit our membership limit which would have been nice. Things are settling back down now.

    This is true. There may be a situation where some clubs decide to operate out of the Pro Shop on slow days like Mon/Tues and shut the clubhouse.

    Power Consumption has been drastically reduced for us with the Clubhouse shut.

    Timesheets are full now but plenty of last minute bailing going on.

    Was that due to a lack of tee times?

    We have gone to single tee starts and the time sheet is full of fours. With little other sport on a lot of people that normally play football or hockey or whatever else are out on the course.

    Do you think they will learn from this then and change things, when things are back to normal (if they do go back to normal)?

    We have closed the clubhouse 3 days a week to be replaced by a beer fridge and pie warmer in the pro shop.

    A cut in wages on days very few sales are made will see the club in front in this scenario.

    I know of at least one club (Wynnum) that isn't rushing to re-open the club house for members, only for functions where they do make money. The members get the hole in the wall option during comps etc.

    Reddie Bay has changed a lot of things whilst the shutdown was in effect. And more to come I believe.

    Those in the above video and plenty of others. Easy to find on the net if you are interested in being informed and up to date.

    Since 1 July we have been completely back to normal.

    The clubhouse is open and trading normally. The crowd rule is now calculated on 1 person per 2 square metres, which seems sufficient. Signing in every time is a bit of a pain, but not really a problem.

    Normal comp times and procedures, but you have to be very quick to get a tee time. Definitely more full time players, and also more members doing 9 holes after the comp.

    Personally, I'd love it if we kept preferred lies in the bunkers, because I've been going really well from them. The flags staying in I have got used to, so I am blaming my poor putting on pure incompetence.
    nothing to see here

    So the video mentions 2 strategies that have been used and other isolation methods used during previous pandemics. There's other options that have been taken around the world too. What we did is not the only way to manage the situation.

    The point I'm making is that surely the decisions we make now will be based on the evidence of strategies from around the world since the first wave and not just locking people in their homes a second time round. It might have flattened the curve but at a cost of over $200 billion dollars, I sure as shit hope they've come up with a plan B if there is another rise in cases and they hit the panic button. Nearly half a trillion dollars of total stimulus if it happens again will be a big f#&kin hole to come back from.
    Since when does need have anything to do with it!

    The patients should get 5 years free accommodation as well.

    Heard the rep for the security guards saying they weren't given enough training!!!
    Don't need training to know you don't sleep with someone in quarantine.
    Absolute disgrace.

    My club is in NSW, I would guess 80% of the players live in Victoria. It will be an interesting time to see what happens with the latest closures. I am not sure if golf is a reason for a permit!
