HCEG Muirfield have been very supportive in enabling us to go ahead with the Babe Zaharias next Monday. However they have been required by East Lothian Council to provide a very detailed and stringent Covid-19 risk assessment which in turn requires us to set very strict and comprehensive rules. These are attached, and you will be asked on the day to confirm that you have read and understand these. If you booked tee times on behalf of other players please forward this email to them.

The additional rules cover travel to Muirfield, registration, practice facilities, play, entering results, professional shop and catering.

Muirfield Additional Covid Regulations (3)

I must draw your attention in particular to the ban on car sharing to travel to Muirfield outside the three ball that you are playing in. If you were planning to car share with someone outside your group, please let me know and we will try to re-arrange the start sheet. This may not be possible, and I would ask all East Lothian and Midlothian ladies not to request this so that we can concentrate on helping those travelling from further afield.

Please note also that your temperature will be checked on arrival, and, if it is above 38 degrees you will not be permitted to play.

I hope everyone will understand why we are having to set such stringent requirements. These are challenging times but together we can make it work!

Thank you all for your co-operation – and thanks again to Muirfield for making it happen.

Hon. Secretary, East Lothian Ladies County Golf Association
