COVID-19 Safety Rules

Ingrebourne Golf & Country Club


As the Government continues to partially relax the shutdown, please see below our updated rules and procedure of play:


  1. Social distancing of 2m between players.
  2. Do not touch the flag sticks or other people’s golf clubs or golf balls. Hole cups are partially filled so that ball can be picked up easily when holed.
  3. No bunker rakes – rake bunkers with your foot and club.
  4. No ball washers.
  5. Practice putting green can only be used 10 mins prior to tee off time

The Clubhouse is CLOSED with only the reception and golf locker room toilets open with only 2 people allowed in at one time. Please socially distance from other golfers and staff.

Golf buggies are for hire but are restricted to either one-person usage or two-person usage from a family group that are currently living together. We kindly ask that after use that golfers wipe down the key contact points of the buggy using the sanitiser and disposable wipes provided.

Tee reservation must be made on-line or by phone for your tee time ONLY.

We request that all golfers adhere to the following procedures when coming to play golf:

  1. Arrive at club, park your car and change your shoes in the car park ready for play.
  2. Meet your playing partners and ONE of you enter reception to book in.
  3. DO NOT CONGREGATE at the clubhouse entrance or any other area.
  4. Arrive at the 1st tee ready for your tee time.
  5. Keep 2m away from your partner and other golfers.
  6. Play your round of golf (18 holes or 9 holes).
  7. Avoid slow play at all times.

Please note that greenkeeping staff have been told they must not get near to golfers or talk with them. Greenkeeping staff have PRIORITY on the course – please wait for them to finish their work before you play.

Volunteer Course Marshals
During the current Covid-19 Pandemic, we will have marshals who will be monitoring the course and Clubhouse surrounds. Their key role currently is to ensure that we only have members playing the course and that they are adhering to the new rules and that we do not have anyone put at risk. Please ensure you have your membership bag tag and membership card available at all times.

Outside dining and beverages
Golfers are now able to drink beverages purchased from the club reception on our outside patio areas.

From Wednesday 15th July food can be ordered from our “Golfers Menu” and purchased at the club reception or by using the Elite Live App and will be served to your table in disposable packaging by the clubhouse staff.

We ask that all empty bottles, food containers and condiments are disposed of in the bins provided.

Tables must not be pushed together and social distancing must be maintained at all times.

We hope you appreciate that the measures we have put in place are in everyone’s interest and will mean that you can continue to play golf in a safe environment. It is up to each individual golfer to respect and abide by these new rules of play at Ingrebourne Links Golf & Country Club.
