BREAKING NEWS 6 January 2022 – RE-INTRODUCTION OF SOME RESTRICTIONS

  • Masks again are required to be worn when indoors. They are not required when outdoors.
  • Density limits indoors are again at 1 person per 2 square metres.
    The upstairs and downstairs bar areas are open and staff will monitor patronage numbers to comply with density limits. No bookings are required at this stage.

Previously communicated unchanged restrictions

  • Golfing is only allowed for fully vaccinated golfers (social and competition play).
  • Fully vaccinated means:
    • you have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, or
    • you have a valid medical exemption to COVID-19 vaccination issued by an authorised medical practitioner, or
    • you are aged under 16.

    We therefore ask members to:

    • submit proof of their vaccination status to Pro Shop staff or via email to bm@bendigogolfclub.com.au as soon as possible, if they haven’t done so yet, so we can update eligibility of play in our systems, and
    • cancel any existing bookings if they do not meet the ‘Fully vaccinated’ status.

  • Bendigo Golf Club is open for social and competition play but only to fully vaccinated members, members’ guests and visitors / green fee players who reside in Regional Victoria as well as Metropolitan Melbourne.
