The PGA's dedicated COVID-19 Helpline

The PGA's COVID-19 Helpline provides help, support an guidance for PGA Members, golf clubs and their management teams through the ongoing crisis.

The PGA's COVID-19 Helpline was launched in March 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. It has remained a point of contact for both PGA Members and their golf facilities, focusing on the new Government financial support, how it will apply to the golf business and individuals and how to access this support.

Robert Maxfield, Chief Executive of The PGA, said: “These are unprecedented times. The coronavirus is having a massive impact on life in the UK and Ireland and like so many other industries, golf is being hit hard by the ramifications. We remain concerned about the impact on our Members, their professional colleagues and their golf facilities.

“The helpline allows us to respond to our Members' individual concerns and questions and we will be here as a point of contact for Members and their facilities should they need us.”

The livelihoods of more than 8,000 PGA Members are reliant on the sustainability of golf facilities and supporting their facilities is an important addition to The PGA service. The PGA has been working closely with a number of golfing bodies and the All Parliamentary Group for Golf to develop advice and resources throughout the pandemic.

The PGA's COVID-19 Resource hub, and this has become the main reference resource for many within the industry. This will continue to be updated as and when information becomes available.

The service will not only receive calls via the helpline, but a dedicated team of PGA staff will also proactively contact PGA Professionals and their facilities in the coming days to direct them to further support and advice

Robert Maxfield said: “We, too, will do whatever it takes to support our Members and their facilities through these difficult times. We all have a long-term interest in the golf industry not only surviving these difficult times but emerging stronger and more united in the months ahead.”
