Golf NSW – announcement 25 MarchPublished on 25th March 2020 in Uncategorised
From Golf NSW – Dear Member Clubs and Districts. Following the announcement of further restrictions by the Prime Minister last night concerning the containment of the COVID-19 virus, Golf NSW can confirm via the Office of Sport – NSW Government, that NSW golf clubs can continue golfing operations, on the condition that spatial/social distancing regulations are adhered to.
Professional shops are also able to service members and their golfing needs, as long as spatial/social distancing regulations are adhered to in regard to both staff and customers.
Clubhouse operations continue to remain closed, however, club amenities such as toilets/restrooms may be accessed, as long as spatial/social distancing regulations are adhered to.
The regulations allowing clubs to offer takeaway food and drinks remain unchanged, as long as they are consumed off-premise, and in line with spatial/social distancing regulations.
In light of the above, let’s work together to ensure that the play of golf continues through these tough times. A single instance where social distancing and other regulations are not followed could result in the entire state being banned from playing a game that maintains our health, both physical and mental when we need it most. Stuart Fraser – CEO Golf NSW
