CORONAVIRUS POLICY

Lane Cove Golf Club would like to provide you with our policy regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We would also like to assure you that the well-being of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Lane Cove Golf Club continues to take its guidance and direction on the Coronavirus matter from the relevant expert local health authorities, such as NSW Health. This advice is monitored on a regular basis.

We understand that patrons are feeling cautious in regards to their own health, and that of their family members. We would like to assure you that we have further increased precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our customers and staff.

All of our staff are double vaccinated and have received instructions on enhanced hygiene and safety protocol. Staff are asked to be diligent in their own personal hygiene, using soap and water to wash hands thoroughly, and hand sanitiser. Staff have been informed to seek medical advice and self-isolate if they are showing the symptoms of Coronavirus or have been in contact with someone who has, or is suspected of having, Coronavirus.

Our cleaning staff have also been asked to be more detailed in their cleaning of common areas including the entrance foyer, bar area, bathrooms and club furniture/equipment.

  1. If you are aged 16 and over you must be double-vaccinated to enter our premises. Proof of vaccination will be required upon entry;
  2. You acknowledge that you are entering our club at your own risk;
