WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1ST, 2020 - COVID-19 UPDATE From GOLF NSW

Dear Member Clubs and Districts,

Golf NSW is pleased to provide an update.

After reconsideration, the Office of Sport – NSW Government has advised that golf is considered an activity that can continue to be played in line with Public Health Orders relating to public gathering limits, social distancing, and the elderly.

The statement from the Office of Sport - NSW Government is as follows:

The Office of Sport would like to clarify the advice that went out on Monday 30 March 2020.

As you know, there are now restrictions around public gatherings and rules around leaving your home. These new measures are in place to keep the community safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. But it is important to note that people are allowed to leave their homes for the purpose of exercise. For more information on the new restrictions, please visit https://preview.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/public-health-orders

What does this mean for sport and active recreation organisations?

The NSW Government has issued guidelines allowing people to go outside and exercise. Any form of exercise is to be undertaken in compliance with the Public Health Orders, meaning that people must not participate in groups greater than two persons at any point in time. Therefore, individual sports such as golf and tennis can continue provided the Public Health Orders are complied with.

Maintaining the public’s physical and mental well-being is now as important as ever. Where possible, it is important sporting clubs and organisations continue to allow people to exercise, so long as social distancing is practised and rules around public gatherings of no more than two people are complied with.

NOTE - WEHGC MEMBERS

The Club will open the course from tomorrow, Thursday April 2 with the following rules in place which must be followed at all times when in the club precinct. Failure to do so could result in the club having to close again.

1. Competitions can be played but must be only in groups of 2 people. Social Groups must also be two people only.


2. Only one person & one bag per cart  Social distancing regulations can be enforced in public, regardless of family connections


3. No Shotgun starts until further notice. A timesheet start with reasonable distance between groups must be adhered to


4. At the completion of your game you must put your card in the box and immediately leave the club/course. (Captains will enter the cards for each group).

These rules will apply to all competitions and social golf.

Please follow the rules so we can keep the club open ......
stay healthy, and good golfing...........⛳️
