Exercise and Dog Walking for local residents

24th March 2020

Dear local residents

These are unprecedented times.

Our land at RGC and Caversham Heath remain private property (at RGC one public right of way across our 10th fairway, at Caversham Heath public rights of way are clearly designated through and around the outside perimeter).

However, from today Tuesday 24th March, for the period of restrictions due to the coronavirus when golf is not permitted, we would like to make the land inside the perimeter of our courses available to the local residents (walking only) for essential once a day exercise (no cycling or skateboarding etc).

You do so at your own risk and you must observe the appropriate minimum of the social distancing and all government guidelines and for all to stay away from the closely mown areas of the fairways, tees, bunkers and greens.

If dog walking we ask that all dog mess is collected and removed from the site.

It has been announced today that our greenstaff can continue to work but they will do so in reduced numbers working remotely (although we do have two sets of family living in the same house who will work together at times) observing social distancing at all times.

We kindly ask that any instructions regarding use of the site that you receive from the greenstaff are observed immediately.

We will continue to offer this facility during this period of closure as long as the above is fully observed and as we can. The ability to get some fresh air and exercise will be the salvation for many and the Board and members of Reading Golf Club are keen to do what we can to offer our support to all.

Please, stay safe and well.
