- Queueing – upon entry to the lounge, firstly please use hand sanitizers available on ledge /step down to the lounge. Then, identify a table for you and your playing partners and only 1 person to join the bar queue. If no tables available inside check outside areas (patio and tent) and again one person to join the bar queue and remainder of playing group to sit at the outdoor tables.
