Golf Courses and Covid-19 – Update

Since the 11th May 2020 many local courses have re-opened to the golfing public but all operating under the umbrella of the covid-19 safety protocol instructions and of course travel for golf or any other reason is restricted to the province in which we live.

Also announced during the last week it is now a mandatory instruction to wear masks in public places and these included the reception areas of golf courses but not for conducting the sport itself.

Having played under the umbrella of the covid-19 safety protocol for a few weeks it is clear that by far the biggest single factor is buggies with single occupancy because most of the local resident golfers are retired and now find it difficult to walk 18 holes and this problem will only get worse as the temperatures rise during the summer months.

A number of the  courses have responded by reducing the prices for single occupancy buggies and are allowing a buggy to carry two sets of clubs so at least the walker is not pulling or pushing a trolley for 18 holes BUT the feedback from potential clients is that this in many cases still makes golf too expensive for them.

Until the air bridge is commences which allows tourist flights between European countries the courses will be heavily reliant on the local resident golfer and so the courses need to be further pro-active in this issue and may need to consider fitting screen partitions within the buggy space to allow the use of shared buggies.

Below is an update on the situation at local golf courses:
