Golf in Wales set to reopen on Saturday 13th March

12/03/2021

Golf in Wales will be able to reopen from tomorrow (Saturday 13th March).

The Welsh Government will lift the ‘stay at home’ requirements in Wales from Saturday and replace it with ‘stay local’. If the infection rates continue to decrease across the country, the stay local rule may be lifted on the 27th March.

Golf will be able to be played with a maximum of four people from two households (children under 11 and carers do not count towards this limit.). No society golf bookings should take place until further notice.

Wales Golf is encouraging golf clubs to start reciprocal arrangements which could allow people to play at other clubs close to their homes while the ‘stay local’ rule is in place. 

Clubhouse facilities, locker rooms and professional shops must remain closed. However, toilets and washrooms are permitted. Clubs must ensure toilets are regularly cleaned and well managed to minimise the risk of the transmission of the virus.

Outdoor coaching can resume with up to four people from two households, inclusive of the coach (children under 11 and carers do not count towards this limit). Organised children’s activities outdoors may be able to restart from 27th March.

Outdoor driving ranges may be able to re-open. However, facilities must check with their Local Authority prior to opening. All Facilities must conduct full risk assessments.

Subject to confirmation at a later review, all shops, including close contact services, may be able to re-open on the 12th of April.  Click and collect services can still operate but collections must take place from a shop entrance or side entrance and not from inside a shop.

Custom fitting is no permitted under the 'stay local' restrictions. New information will be added to The PGA's COVID-19 Resource Hub as soon as it becomes available.
