Phase 3 Protocol to remain in place

Friday, 17th July, 2020


Note: This applies to clubs in the Republic of Ireland only

Following confirmation this week from government that we will not enter Phase 4 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business as planned, golf clubs are reminded that the Phase 3 Protocol ( available above) remains in place until August 10th.

Full adherence to the provisions of this Protocol is absolutely essential. Golf was in the very privileged position to have been allowed to resume in Phase 1 and this return was based on the sport being able to demonstrate to government that it can take place in a safe, socially distant manner.

The high level of compliance demonstrated so far by club volunteers, members and staff is a credit to the sport and these efforts must be maintained.
