No point in opening the books for 2,3 and 4 balls if your particular area comes out in tier 3 (or even 4 if they extend it) and only 2 balls are allowed so clubs revert to 9 holes only to get enough people on the course.
We were in Tier 3 before the latest lockdown, but weren't limited to 2 balls so hoping we wouldn't be come 3rd December.

Scotland seems to have a plan, unlike Boris for England.
Plan for what ?

We still have just under 2 weeks to go , it’s already been said that areas will go back into their tier once lockdown finishes and the rules that comes with those tiers

Tomorrow there is going to be further instructions on any updated restrictions within the various tiers mainly in regards indoors etc

Right now from the 3rd Dec we will be back to how we were before whilst playing golf - the clubhouse opening etc will be determined by the tier your area is in
Even tier 3 would be open just 2 balls so there is hope
Why just 2balls ? All tiers allow up to 6 to mix outdoors

I went to B&Q yesterday, big mistake. It was absoluyely rammed, it took me 20 minutes to get out of the car park.

Went and walked the course this afternnon with the dog. It looks quite tidy and of course it was completely empty.

I miss remembered I thought tier 3 was when you could meet in group of 6 outside but only 2 households

Bit confused why my club mentioned it twice now that they don't no if two or four balls

Maybe from the first lockdown

HID wen to get petrol at the local Sainsbury's around 10.15 and queueing out of the car park and onto the roundabout gridlocking everything. People were snaking across half the car par so I would suggest a good 150-200 people waiting to get in at the start of trading plus all those still in the cars. What lockdown?

My understanding is we are out of lockdown on the 2nd (Wednesday 00.01am). So golf on Wednesday.

The news said today that we'll be subject to new rules in the tier system from the 2nd. Some think that means we'll be back playing golf Thursday!!!
