  • We're underway - welcome back!

    One of the most inviting sights in golf – a freshly cut first fairway to aim for!

    We’re back underway with ‘safe golf’ on the first day of play being allowed following an enforced COVID-19 shutdown.

    Initially, due to pressures on tee times brought about by social distancing restrictions, play will be for members only, in a maximum of two-balls, with online booking and stringent social distancing measures in place.

    The clubhouse will remain closed, in line with Government guidance.

    Wherever you are playing, enjoy your golf, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you to Chesterfield Golf Club later in the year.
