Stage 3 restrictions from Thursday
Can I play golf at Trentham?
Stage 3 lockdown restrictions come into force for Trentham Golf Club on Thursday, most likely until at least September 13. This means:
- You can only play golf with one other person, or with members of your household. This means a group size of two (unless they are your family members).
- Upcoming timesheets have been adjusted to pairs only. Please note that some times may have altered (earlier or later) for Thursday August 6 and Saturday August 8 to accommodate this.
- Golfers within each pair must keep 1.5 metres apart, and groups must maintain a distance of 100 metres from other groups on the course.
- Masks are already needed to be worn (except when eating) and this will continue.
- We cannot accept visitors from any of the Melbourne Stage 4 lockdown areas, or anyone else who has travelled an unnecessary distance to play.
- There will be no hire of carts, pull buggies or golf clubs. Members can use their own motorised carts, but please sanitised them before and after use.
- The clubhouse will be closed, and the Birdie Kitchen will not be operating for food service. Bring your own food and drinks.
We will be reverting to a "virtual" model based on social golf. We encourage everyone to score using the MiScore app. Otherwise scores will need to be e-mailed to the club no later than 6.00pm on the day of play and preferably when you finish your round.
On the course, we are still following strict Covid-19 procedures. These include no removing flags, no bunker rakes, no hand shaking etc.
You must book to play
With Covid-19 restrictions, the club is required by the current State Health regulations to register all golfers to the course, with a minimum of your name, contact phone number and time of attendance. We are also required to refuse entry to anyone whose address is currently registered as being in a Stage 4 lockdown area.
Golfers cannot turn up to play without booking, and payment must be made before playing. Course marshalls will be checking all golfers for ID, booking and payment. We cannot accommodate golfers who do not book, and especially those who do not pay. There are no walk-up starts available.
For visitor bookings please use the tee-time request form or call 5424 1046. Members and green fee pass holders can book any time by logging in to the OneGolf timesheets.
Green fee payments may be made using the form on this website, or through the ticket machine at the clubhouse.
Score on your phone instead of a card
Trentham members can now use the MiScore App for scoring at Trentham. The app allows you to score hole-by-hole on your phone as you play your round. The app will work for both competitions and casual scoring.
For competitions, the app links to our OneGolf timesheet, competition and handicapping system. It will automatically recognise your group and their daily course handicaps. The app keeps a running score, and at the end of your round you can submit your score from your phone without need for a paper card or using the touchscreen.
For first use, you need to log in to the MiScore app using your OneGolf member log in (i.e. the same log-in you use for timesheets and bookings).
Covid-19 green fee payment
Paying green fees
There are two ways you can pay your green fees on the spot when you arrive at Trentham without using a cash transaction.
The first is to pay at our ticket machine using PayWave for Visa or Mastercard. Follow the number prompts, then Paywave your card at the end. Please note that there is a limit of $100 for PayWave transactions without a PIN, so you may have to split transactions of more than $100 into two separate payments .
The second is to pay with Paypal, Visa or Mastercard using the payment form here on our website.
What's even easier is to scan the QR code posted outside the clubhouse with your phone and it will take you straight to the page with the payment form. There is a small charge of 60 cents per player to help cover our Paypal costs. You may also have to turn on scanning of QR codes on your phone.
Making it easy to get into golf
At Trentham we offer a range of options to get into and keep playing golf. While we have full memberships for those who prefer the wonderful option of belonging to a club, unlike many clubs this is not all we offer. We also have a number of options for social golfers, summer golfers, or those who would just like green fee discounts for playing regularly.
All our memberships are very affordable and provide a GolfLink handicap with a Trentham GolfLink number and personal insurance.
Green fee passes provide very affordable, year-round social play at Trentham (please note that passes carry no handicap or insurance).
The membership year at Trentham for full memberships is March 1 to February 28 (pro rata fees available). Access, Lifestyle memberships and green fee passes are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.
