Website

Club Website

It seems an age ago since I was asked by the Secretary to help bring the website up to date. Whilst not without it’s technical challenges, it’s been a very interesting experience. Mulling over ISP’s, theme updates, broken links, bounce rates, plug-ins, PHP/SSL updates and media ad-spend budgeting etc.etc., whilst also juggling with Covid related Risk Assessments and Method Statements for the club has been a tremendous and worthy challenge!

A huge big thank you to all the website users who stuck with it, it’s not easy these days to build an online platform in the middle of relentless email noise, and judging by the analytical ‘stats’ in evidence your support has been incredible, and proves that the site can indeed be a valuable ‘go to’ resource for the club.

It’s now however time for me to hang up my tech boots and hand the website over to somebody new and shiny. Whoever that may be I wish them great success in bringing it onto the next level, and I’m sure they will find the site a cleaner and more stable platform to work with.

In the meantime I hope that you’re all in good health whilst seeing out the latest lockdown and looking forward to a relaxed Christmas and New Year.

I’m sure that we are comforted in the hope that the new vaccine will do it’s job for us all!

Best regards,

Captain

Lockdown

Dear All,

It seems that the admirable challenge to the latest lockdown restrictions by the CEO of England Golf has fallen on deaf ears.

The club is now closed for golf and hospitality from today the 5th November until the 2nd of December 2020.

Prime Minister Mr Johnson is unable to say what would happen next, other than to “hope” there would be no need to extend the restrictions.

I sincerely hope that you all keep well and have a beloved hobby to fill the time..fortunately mine is Fly Fishing!

Best regards,

Captain

Lockdown

Dear All,

No doubt you will have heard or read the saddening news with regards to the forthcoming Covid-19 ‘National Lockdown’ commencing Thursday 5th November 2020.

I understand that the guidance that followed the statement described that golf courses were on a list of venues which should close.

Jeremy Tomlinson, CEO England Golf is spearheading a challenge to this guidance citing the lack of consultation with England Golf and the apparent contradiction within the Prime Minister’s own encouragement of safe and responsible outdoor exercise.

We can only wait and hope that the challenge is successful. The full statement and indeed open letter to all golfers can be found by clicking here.

Keep well and safe.

Regards,

Captain.

Covid-19 House and Bar

House & Bar

North East Lancashire’s recently acquired Covid-19 Tier 3 status has meant that we have regrettably had to pull the shutters down at the bar and close the serving pass at the kitchen until further notice.

It really is a most frustrating time for all concerned considering that our team had made great steps and efforts to make your experience the best that it could be under the circumstances.There are sound public health and commercial reasons for the decision however and it is subject to constant review.

We look forward to getting back to somewhere normal but have no idea when that will be unfortunately!
