On the .Gov website

Section 3 Business and venues ....Last paragraph

Wednesday 13 May, the government will also allow outdoor sports facilities – such as tennis and basketball courts, golf courses and bowling greens – to open, but you should only use these alone, with members of your household, or with one other person from outside your household, while keeping two metres apart at all times.

Some people, including those aged 70 and over, should continue to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside their household.

Dail Mail from 14:53 today, make of it what you will...............

"When they're outdoors can they play sports?
Yes, but again this must be limited to doing so only with members of your own household.
Tennis courts and golf clubs could reopen in England from Wednesday, so long as social distancing measures are enforced.
Other permitted activities will include water sports and angling. "
Why would anybody use the Daily Mail as a source of information?

What's wrong with you :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I suspect this process will highlight those clubs who were anticipating events as much as they could, verses those that started to think about it today.

Interesting that a lot of you are discussing possible limitations, and restrictions on tee availability.

I have no clue what the demand is going to be, but as a starting point:
1. Typical midweek traffic on the course (i.e. when most people are at work) = quiet
2. Less all societies and visitors = even more quiet
3. Less all those shielding (including those not prepared to "risk it" yet) = large demographic of midweek golfers
4. Plus those on furlough + c.20% of workforce

I'm not sure there will be a huge strain on tee times during the week (apart from an initial frenzy this week).

Come the weekend, however, that's a completely different story. You'd expect the course to be packed with 3 balls and 4 balls at this time of year. Fitting everyone in 2 balls is going to leave many disappointed.

I guess the Daily Mail is getting things wrong again.

Government official 50 page report and their own website does not describe any restriction to only playing with a household membr.



Latest Daily Mail 17:24
'The document also corrected another blunder overnight, stating clearly that people are able to play outdoor sports such as tennis or golf with one other person from another household. '
