To golfers and the operators of golf clubs

Golf’s three professional governing bodies have issued further advice to golfers and the operators of golf clubs as a game to be enjoyed 'sensibly and safely' during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The British and International Golf Greenkeeping Association (BIGGA)Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA), Golf Club Managers’ Association (GCMA) and  have issued joint guidance on how golf clubs can continue to allow members and golfers to enjoy the game while observing some simple guidelines.

This information has been produced in addition to previously published guidance shared by the three associations, which suggested ways golf clubs could ensure they are able to remain open for business.

A statement on BIGGA's website says, "The current restrictions do not prevent golf competitions or casual games taking place, but all golfers should follow some simple steps to maintain the low risk of infection. These measures should be agreed by the golf club following the current health and government advice guidelines. Once agreed, these should be communicated to members and presented to the wider audience via a club's website, potential booking platforms and social media."
