Coronavirus- England Golf Starement

England Golf: Guidance for all clubs
Official Statement

England Golf – in light of the developing situation with the COVID-19 outbreak – has today issued the following guidance to all our affiliated golf clubs and golfers.

We fully recognise the need to adhere to the expert advice available and as such we would point all our clubs in the direction of the guidelines set out in detail by Public Health England via their website. Details on how best to cope with the virus can also be found via the World Health Organisation website which will provide rolling updates and the best ways to mitigate against the spread of the infection. NHS England also provide updated and expert advice via their website.

All golf clubs should note, act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by these expert authorities in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

It is important that we all work together, following the advice of qualified professionals, in controlling the spread of COVID-19. This remains a very fluid situation and England Golf will continue to take their lead from the government and public health authorities when it comes to safeguarding our clubs and members and offering practical and necessary steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of golfers and golf club staff.

England Golf chief executive Jeremy Tomlinson said: “The expert practical advice that is available from the health authorities and national government should remain the first point of reference for all our golf clubs and golfers. “This is clearly a fluid and developing situation and we will continue to monitor events as they progress and pass on the relevant information to our stakeholders.

“By working in alignment with those who are specialists in this field, we will be able to take the necessary precautions and provide the correct measures to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak.

Weekend Stableford #4 Results

With just 9 players entering on Saturday due to the weather and the various team trials there was a much better turnout on Sunday for the final Winter Weekend Stableford, resulting in 56 players competing. Conditions were tough with the wind but the course once again dried out quickly to be eminently playable. I was at SRGC at lunchtime today collecting the cards for review and 8 visitors from a local club were there having just played, they were amazed at the conditions we experience throughout most of the winter period compared to their own club and asked me to pass on their thanks to our Greenkeeping Staff!! I'm sure all Members will second that.
