After reconsideration, the Office of Sport – NSW Government has advised that golf is considered an activity that can continue to be played in line with Public Health Orders relating to public gathering limits, social distancing, and the elderly.
The statement from the Office of Sport – NSW Government is as follows:
The NSW Office of Sport would like to clarify the advice that went out on Monday 30 March 2020.
As you know, there are now restrictions around public gatherings and rules around leaving your home. These new measures are in place to keep the community safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. But it is important to note that people are allowed to leave their homes for the purpose of exercise.
We note the advice from the Government and medical professionals that anyone that has an underlying health issue or is over the age of 70 are more susceptible and should not go out unless absolutely necessary. So if this applies to you we strongly advise you to heed the warnings and stay at home. Your health must be your number one priority.
As always if you are not going to play please remove your name from the tee bookings so that someone else can play. This is especially important as all tee bookings will be limited to two players only.
