COVID-19 measures at Burnley Golf Course

We’re very thankful that we can still welcome you down to Burnley for a game of golf.

However, in order to keep our community and staff safe, we have introduced some new playing measures and closed some of our course facilities. Please familiarise yourself with these changes if you plan on joining us for a round.

What services remain available at Burnley Golf Course?

  • 9 hole rounds in playing groups of 2 (as per stage 3 restrictions). Limit of 1 booking per day. 
  • takeaway food and beverage only (no alcohol)
  • Pro shop is open, with only 2 people permitted inside at one time

What services are not available at Burnley Golf Course?

  • No equipment hire (i.e. carts, club hire and/or pull buggies)
  • Practice facilities are closed
  • Golf Carts are currently unavailable due to wet course conditions
  • Social club tee times are not available

How can I stay safe at Burnley?

  • You must book ahead online: no booking, no game
  • All players must bring and play with their own face mask
  • Contactless payment only (no cash)
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before your booked tee time (no gathering in groups prior to your game)
  • Please only move to the first tee at your designated booking time and no earlier
  • Please leave the course straight after you have finished your game
  • You must not share equipment (i.e. clubs, tees, or balls)
  • Please ensure there is a 100 metre distance between you and other playing groups at all times and always follow guidance from our friendly staff
  • Please do not attend the course if you feel unwell

Why can't I book in for 18 holes?

Due to the high demand for golf at the moment, we need to ensure that as many players as possible are able to enjoy Burnley Golf Course during stage 3 restrictions.  Therefore we have decided that we will not offer 18 hole rounds at this stage.

Why can’t I play with my club during our designated tee times?

As a public course, we are committed to ensuring that all members of our community have equal access to Burnley Golf Course and because golf is now one of the few forms of permitted exercise, we want to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to play.

What are we doing to minimise health risks at the course and facilities?

We will remain vigilant in implementing infection control procedures, including COVID-19 Infection Control Training for all our staff, regular cleaning in accordance with DHHS recommendations, the promotion of healthy hygiene habits and making hand sanitiser available for staff and patrons to use.

How can I stay in the loop?
