Burra Golf Club Reopens with Restrictions

Burra Golf Club reopens with the following restriction
Although we are able to open, we will be under some very strict restrictions, so that we can come out the other side of this lockdown stronger. Please take the time to read the below requirements as we all must do our part to keep our golfing community safe.

Clubhouse Requirements:
●Masks are mandatory upon entry to the clubhouse , this includes bathroom facilities. Understand that this is a requirement by law, if a committee member asks you to put on your mask please do so immediately. Hand hygiene important please use the sanitiser provided.
●Our density capacity is dramatically reduced, at 1 person per 4 square metres. This allows for a maximum of, 22 people in the club house and 11 people under the veranda. Please keep this at the forefront of your mind when attending the golf course.
●Food and Beverage can be consumed either inside or outside, however you must be seated. As our liquor license encompasses the entire golf course and clubhouse, this means you cannot consume any food or beverage whilst standing up playing on the golf course.

Golf Course Requirements:
●Golf can resume on Wednesday morning, although it will be for recreational purposes only. Competition golf cannot resume at this stage.
●Golf carts can still be shared, however it is a requirement from Burra Golf Course that only the one person drives, as physical distancing is not possible, we ask that anyone sharing a cart wears a mask at all times.
●Flag poles are to remain in at all times and no handshaking.
●social golf will be held on our usual golf days
Club championships will be held on the 15th
of August as long as we can resume golf by the 7th August

I ask that all members and visitors remain understanding of these restrictions and continue to do their part to keep our community safe. It is still a requirement of the SA Government that you either QR code check-in or use the Contact Tracing Register which are either in the clubhouse area.

We look forward to welcoming all golfers back

Burra Golf Course Closed Until Further Notice

Covid-19 measures introduced by the SA Government have meant that the golf course is currently closed.

The health of all members and visitors are of prime concern and the committee has acted quickly following the latest government announcements and advice from Golf Australia.

We will open the course again once it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime, please keep safe.

Tommo Predicts Boh Wall for Club Title

Colourful local identity Philip “Tommo” Thomson told reporters that Boh Wall was the man to beat after Boh bundled him out of the Club Championship in the quarter finals 5&4. “I played well but this guy is too good” Tommo said.

In other matches Mark Millward saw Pat Hallion off with a comfortable 4&3 win, Matt Opperman had to work harder to beat David “Robbie” Robinson 2&1 and Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel had to go the 19th hole to beat defending champion, David “Jack” Webster.

Boh Wall, Tommo’s choice to win the club championship.

12 Year Old Girl Gives Lesson to Burra Men

Visiting 12 year old Delta Robinson defeated the Burra Men on Tuesday scoring 39 stableford points, 6 better than the best male score & 15 better than colourful local identity Philip “Tommo” Thomson. Think about Mars Bar recipient, poor old Andy Phillips, beaten by 18 strokes!

Delta clearly demonstrated that “playing like a girl” is not a derogatory comment but one of praise. We look forward to seeing Delta’s golf develop in the coming year’s and wish her all the best for her golfing future.
