Corona virus Message from Club Captain Tom McGrath.
It is with great regret that I have to announce the closure of the club in accordance with the GUI & ILGU recommendations below.
I will endeavor to keep members informed of any changes to this decision.
I want to thank all members for their understanding and express to stay safe and well.
Templemore Golf Club Captain.
“GUI & ILGU Recommend Golf Clubs & Facilities To Close
Urgent response requires all golf clubs, courses and facilities to close
Following the recent announcements by the UK and Irish Governments in relation to the corona virus pandemic, the GUI and ILGU recommend that all golf clubs, practice facilities and courses across the island close with immediate effect until April 19th 2020. While golf is an outdoor sport that allows players to exercise in the fresh air, the message is clear. People must stay at home to help to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Unions recognise the need clubs may have for business support at this time. We will monitor options available and engage with the relevant sporting bodies in due course to make representations for our member clubs. We know that these decisions are difficult ones to make, but right now, it is our shared responsibility to prioritise the health of our local communities by working together to follow the respective Government guidelines. In doing so, this will ensure that we get the opportunity to play the game that we all love as soon as it is safe to do so.”
