CORONAVIRUS AND THE RESUMPTION OF GOLF
THE BILL RENISON TROPHIES TOURNAMENT (“the BR”)
On 29th March, the Government eased some of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic including the resumption of certain outside sports activities including golf.
We’re pleased to advise that Wallasey has confirmed the BR WILL take place on Sunday 16th May subject to any further national restrictions between now and then.
Clubs which entered for the 2020 Tournament, which was cancelled, have automatically been rolled over into 2021.
Certain pandemic issues however will still prevail on 16th May and these will, inter alia, include (1) restricted access to the Clubhouse – you may only eat outside with the “Rule of 6” pertaining and (2) we are liaising with Wallasey on score card input.
It’s envisaged the tournament will be a qualifier (an organised golf event) for handicap purposes.
We look forward to seeing your Club Team there. The Draw and Rules are set out within this Website under Competitions – those who were eligible to play last year through “age qualification” may also play in 2021 – a once-off pandemic exemption.
