Grassroots Golf – Scottish Golf update on Coronavirus

3.00pm 17th March 2020 - Coronavirus NewsCorporate

As we continue to follow the latest government advice on public gatherings, Scottish Golf has taken the decision to postpone all grassroots golf activity that falls under Scottish Golf administration with immediate effect.

The programmes impacted by this decision are:

This decision has been taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure that everyone involved in the game from players to coaches, volunteers and staff are protected from unnecessary contact.

Scottish Golf will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and will be in direct correspondence with those impacted by today’s decision as our response to the outbreak continues.

While Scottish Golf has taken this difficult decision, we would also like to highlight that golf is a sport that allows players to exercise outdoors in the fresh air where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is low. All golf clubs should aim to keep their members and staff safe and well.

We appreciate that this is a very fluid situation and to support all clubs, we have set up a designated section on the Scottish Golf website to ensure our updates are easy to access. Click here to access the latest updates in response to COVID-19.
