Whitefields Golf Club and Toptracer Range opened the week commencing 11th May. Since, we have received a high volume of calls, emails, and messages.
In recent days, Government announcements have allowed for restrictions to ease and we have reflected this in our policies and procedures. With this in mind, we thought it would be useful to compile a series of updates to help our Members and Non-members access our facilities safely and securely.
