UPDATE - The PGA is hoping to confirm further details around playing, coaching, retail, and club fitting, as well the implications for driving ranges and practice facilities, on Thursday 25th February, 2021.

Industry bodies involved with the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf awaited today’s announcement from the Prime Minister with great interest.  Boris Johnson has now confirmed that golf will be included in the first wave of sports able to return once the national legal requirements to stay at home end on 29th March.

A meeting of the APPG with industry bodies is scheduled to take place this Wednesday (24 February) to consider the impact of the statement on the sport in England, and the full details are now being reviewed by the industry bodies, specifically the impact of the different levels on different aspects of golf including playing, coaching, retail, and club fitting, as well the implications for driving ranges and practice facilities.

PGA Members are encouraged to review The PGA's COVID-19 Resource Hub, located on the PGA website, for further details and updates. All premises are encouraged to ensure risk assessments and action plans comply with local guidance ahead of the restart.

Please rest assured we will be in touch to communicate any new information as soon as we receive it and our teams are on hand to provide support at this difficult time.

If you have any COVID-19 questions, please contact your Regional Manager, your Business Relationship Officer, or call The PGA’s dedicated COVID-19 Helpline.
