Said Club Captain Simon Rossiter, who joined colleagues Graham Freer, Trevor McAleese and Darran Valentine; “It’s wonderful to be back on the golf course after the long lockdown restriction and to have some good news at last. I am acutely aware that it is a privilege to be able to play golf as the entire coountry continues to gradually come out of lockdown, but the club will continue to be vigilent in keeping all CovId compliance regulations closely adhered to. We look forward to the continued lifting of restrictions so everyone in our Leighton Buzzard community can return to normal life as soon as possible.”
While access to the club house remains restricted, the club now has new “Halfway House” facilities for refreshments. Cancelled competitions and inter-club matches being rescheduled.
