Note from the President

The following communication has been prepared to update you on the evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In recent weeks the COVID-19 has presented challenges to all of us and in recent days this has intensified. Our primary concern is to take reasonable steps to provide for the health and wellbeing of our Members, guests and staff.

The Club is closely monitoring official resources provided by both the Australian Government Department of Health and Queensland Health for advice.

It is important that Members are aware of the isolation/quarantine periods recommended by the Australian Government.

Members who have been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 case are to isolate for 14 days following exposure. Similarly, if you are returning from a country considered to be a higher risk for COVID-19 you should do the same. If you are returning from a country considered to be a moderate risk you should monitor your health for 14 days after leaving that country. If you develop a fever or cough, you should seek medical advice urgently and isolate yourself.

Our staff have also been made aware of above recommendations.

We have increased our cleaning schedules to improve hygiene standards, particularly in the locker rooms and toilets, and we ask Members to follow the basic tips below to protect themselves and others.

  • Washing hands often, with soap and water, or carrying hand sanitiser and using it as needed
  • Covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing, but not using your hands to do so
  • Limiting contact with others (including shaking hands).
  • Seeing a health care professional if you start to feel unwell

Please note we have also introduced hand sanitisers in the Member’s Lounge and Golf Shop for the use of Members.

At this stage all of social and golfing events will go ahead but this is subject to change.

We will continue to communicate to Members on this topic to ensure we are all informed and prepared as best we can. If you have any questions please contact myself or our General Manager, Geoff Kuehner on 0411 412 666 or via geoff@brisbanegolfclub.com.au.

Kind regards

Phil Wikman, President
