Welcome back, but…..
We are welcoming you back to the RMGC almost to the day that the World Health Organisation have announced that the COVID19 virus has infected over 5,000,000 people already around the world. The death rate has reached a 333,000, almost a 100,000 in the USA alone, and counting and the virus shows no sign of going away. This message therefore is to implore you, as members of a golf club that has over 50% of its membership categorised as vulnerable in terms of COVID19 regulations, to be extra careful and extra prudent when you visit the club in the coming days; especially with, but not limited to, our older members. Please keep that extra metre away, extend every courtesy you can, and help everyone feel comfortable and safe in their second home. And, let’s please show some patience and tolerance as we all try and adapt to the ‘new normal’.
We have been fortunate (in theory at least) in Malta that Government has relaxed measures to the extent that we are able to start golf in groups up to 4. That is not the industry standard though, with the ‘new normal’ being either 1 or 2 balls, very widely spaced out. Extra caution must therefore be employed please when playing as 3 or 4 balls, making sure that extreme social distancing is practiced from the moment you arrive at the club to the time you leave. We are again attaching the terms and conditions of our reopening and would ask that EVERYBODY reads them before they come to the RMGC – it is vital that you do so.
In summary, in enjoying your golf game please ensure that you follow strict social distancing rules at all times.
Play safe, Stay safe.
