The PGA has led the development of a coordinated opening plan with support from BGIA, BIGGA, Foremost, GCMA, TGI Golf Partnership, UK Golf Federation and The R&A with a view to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of golfers and members of staff alike. These guidelines also represent part of the overall document that we have submitted to Government to present a case for golf to open.
