The golf course at Brandon Wood will open for members only, at this first stage, on Friday 15th May. During the current emergency some temporary measures have been put in place in line with the England Golf advice for the safety of all players and staff.
DD Members will be contacted directly from the Finance team regarding the reinstatement of your payments. Up front Members will have their memberships extended accordingly in due course. Memberships will not be able to be altered (i.e. changing of membership type) and no new memberships initially but we will notify you when this changes.
All members may only play if they have a tee time booked in advance. It is not possible to turn up and play without a pre-booked slot. At this stage, players may play singly, or in 2 balls only. A member may only book one tee off time which may include their playing partner. A single player may be accompanied by a non-playing household member.
Only one booking can be made every 48 hours. There will be no group bookings at this stage to free up the maximum number of tee times for members.
A booking can only be made a maximum of 7 days in advance by telephone only.
We will be taking bookings from Thursday 14th May at 9.30am over the phone on a first come first served basis. Please call 02476543141.
Bronze members must pay their green fee with a card over the phone at time of booking. There will be no cash or card transactions in the clubhouse.
Tee times will be available from 8.05am to 5.30pm. To ensure social distancing on the golf course, tee time slots will be every 14 minutes to begin with.
Players must not turn up for their tee time more than 10 minutes before the allotted time. If earlier they must wait in their car. It is permissible to change in the carpark.
The main gate will be open from 7.45am.

On the course
Please note and observe:
- Stay 2 metres apart at all times.
- The practice putting green can only be used immediately before play (provided the cups have been adapted).
- The driving range is closed and is out of bounds.
- Do not touch the pin. The holes have been adapted to stop ball falling into the holes.
- All Bunkers will be GUR
- Do not pick up any ball apart from your own.
- Only play with one ball.
- No cards can be submitted for handicap purposes at this stage.
- Members should take their mobile phones with them on the course for use in the event of an emergency.
We have three greenkeepers only at this time. Please respect them and give them priority. If they are working on a green, abandon your approach shot and move to the next hole.
The reasons for these restrictions is to ensure all members are kept as safe as possible. This is the priority of England Golf and the priority of Coventry Sports trust. Please adhere to these rules which we hope to be as temporary as possible. Without wishing to be totally draconian, the option remains to close the course again if these restrictions are not adhered to.
England Golf’s guidelines and templates are available on their website, www.englandgolf.org
Play Safe, Stay Safe.
