Lanark Golf Club professional Alan White said that, just 15 minutes after online booking at the course opened last week, the sheet was completely full of members’ names from 8am daily for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday!
“It’s been busy every day,” Alan added. “I was not in the least surprised that the tee times for the first five days were taken up so quickly.
“Because England opened up two and a half weeks ago and it followed exactly the same pattern there.
“There are no more than two playing in each group because it’s two households. Everyone understands social distancing, they have had no trouble at all.
“I think this is good for the popularity of golf in the future because people realise they can play golf and social distance very easily.”
For the time being, players can only book a maximum of two rounds within a week.
