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.
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. "
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.
