Good Afternoon All.

Sadly I can confirm that the course will not be open on Monday 29th March and the Council have
confirmed that due to the course conditions, it will remain closed until further notice. No indication has been
given as to when the course will be open for golf.

As soon as we have an opening date I will of course inform you. I will press the Head of Parks at Southend Council for an update early next week.

Safe Golf

Members are advised that together with the support of England Golf we as a Club are in the latter stages towards achieving “Safe Golf” accreditation and expect to to have completed the process in the coming weeks.
