Saunton Golf Club has wished its members well during the latest national lockdown to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Courses were forced to close their doors last week, with the government trying to slow the spread of the disease across the UK.

The situation is due to be reviewed in mid-February and a club statement said: "Following the government's announcement on January 4, Saunton Golf Club will remain closed until further notice.

"Saunton Golf Club would like to wish all of their members and visitors well during this time and look forward to welcoming them back once again.

"The club office will remain open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm. For any enquiries, please email"
