Covid 19 Update

Policy on vaccinated and unvaccinated people attending Bulimba Golf Club

 
Queensland Health has published the Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status Direction (PHD) and comes into effect at 5am 17 December 2021. Bulimba Golf Club will adhere to this direction and encourages both golf participants and staff to get vaccinated as soon as able because this information may change at any time.

Golf Australia and Clubs Queensland have provided golf clubs assistance in interpreting how this will affect clubs and in doing so, at Bulimba Golf Club the following will apply:

Unvaccinated people can:
  • Play golf, including associated activities; golf course practice facilities, mini golf etc.
  • Play golf in the same group as fully vaccinated people
  • Share a golf cart with a vaccinated golfer
  • Use the drinks cart service
  • Enter and use Golf Pro-shop services
  • Purchase take away food and drink to consume on the golf course & practice facilities.

They cannot eat and drink in the Golf Pro-shop, Clubhouse and surrounds.

Management and staff will implement the Club’s Vaccination Status Procedure as of Friday 17 December:
  • Displaying signage, advising that only fully vaccinated people can consume food and drink in the Clubhouse and surrounds.
  • Ensuring that all members and guests check in on the QR Check in App.
  • Asking patrons for proof of vaccination if they intend to stay within the Clubhouse and surrounds.
We understand that everyone has their own opinion on this issue and whether you agree or disagree, the Club is simply following rules imposed by the Government. Therefore, all members and guests are expected to show respect to the Bulimba Golf Club staff. We can confirm that all hospitality staff employed at the Club are fully vaccinated and will continue employment.
Your understanding and cooperation to help our Club adhere to this Public Health Direction is appreciated.
I am available to discuss this matter at any time, should you wish to do so.

Thank you

Kerry Hingston
Manager
