Obvious measures to minimise the spread of COVID-19 should be implemented.
- Adhere to the 2 square metres per person distancing rules as a minimum
- Ensure contact with golf-related infrastructure is minimised
- Reduce hole depth or place an object in the cup that makes ball retrieval easier.
- Ensure personal hygiene standards of staff are maintained at the highest level.
- Don’t attend the golf club if you feel ill, or have been in contact with someone who is
- Don’t shake hands before or after your round.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth because your hands touch many different surfaces and can easily pick up viruses
