Officials England Golf Statement

The UK Government has today provided clarification on outdoor recreation and rules on social distancing in England.

These will affect how golf can be played from Wednesday 13 May and, in particular, the configuration of groupings on a golf course.

Under new government rules released today (11 May), the following groupings will be permitted upon resumption of play:
Individuals playing golf on their own.
Two-balls comprising of individuals from different households
At the discretion of the golf club, members of the same household playing in two, three or four-balls.

Social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to at all times.

Government stipulates: “Government is updating the rules so that, as well as exercise, people can now also spend time outdoors subject to: not meeting up with any more than one person from outside your household; continued compliance with social distancing guidelines to remain two metres (6ft) away from people outside your household; good hand hygiene, particularly with respect to shared surfaces; and those responsible for public places being able to put appropriate measures in place to follow the new COVID-19 Secure guidance. People may exercise outside as many times each day as they wish.

“You can only exercise with up to one person from outside your household – this means you should not play team sports, except with members of your own household. People may drive to outdoor open spaces irrespective of distance, so long as they respect social distancing guidance while they are there, because this does not involve contact with people outside your household.”

Further clarification is being sought from government relating to the opening of professional shops and driving ranges as well as the carrying out of club fitting and coaching sessions.

The following organisations have come together to help golf in the UK during the COVID-19 crisis and, through the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf, to work with Government to promote safe golf:
The Belfry; the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association; the British Golf Industry Association; England Golf; the Golf Club Managers’ Association; Golf Ireland; the Golfing Union of Ireland; the Irish Ladies’ Golf Union; IMG; The Professional Golfers’ Association; PING; The R&A; Scottish Golf; Syngenta; the UK Golf Federation; Wales Golf.

We are being limited to 3 tee times per week. Those of us who can play midweek are being asked to do so to leave the weekends free for those poor souls still working...
Although we can fill slots if they haven't been taken on the day.
By being fairly close and keeping an eye on the bookings theres a possibility of playing every day if there are spare times.....
Just waiting on the email to finalise proceedings and we're away.

Yes.
Tee times booked for Wed & Fri.
Will probably play on Sun as the demand for tee times looks ok.
Will try & play as many days as possible next week, but will only book some at the last minute if they are going begging to be fair to other members & not hog loads of tee times.
Can't wait to get out & play some golf.

Woohoo, ClubV1 is now back and running. I'm booked in for Friday and Saturday afternoons.

We can only book once per day, that's normal, but I could play 7 days a week if I wanted. No restrictions on that front. One of the benefits of a relatively small membership, although it is not healthy long term of course.

Might not be BRS but your club ? We've set ours to go live at 19.30 tomorrow with email out to members to that effect (y)
Yeah I think it's something like that. They said it would be available some time on the morning of the 12th, then a Facebook post a couple of hours ago said they were just waiting for the tee time spaces to be set to 10 minutes apart and will be available to use it very soon.
Well that is done now but we still can't book :cry:
