Golf Courses to reopen in Wales

Wales Golf  are looking forward to welcoming golfers back to their clubs from Monday 9th of November:

  • Golf clubs, courses, professional shops, and driving ranges will be able to reopen.
  • Up to 15 people can take part in an organised indoors activity and up to 30 in an organised activity outdoors, providing all social distancing, hand hygiene and other COVID-19 safety measures are followed. This will allow golf to be played in fourballs and allows group coaching to resume. The requirement to book before you play golf will continue.
  • Golf club restaurants, will be able to reopen. Following the announcement about the English lockdown, Ministers are having ongoing discussions with the hospitality sector about the detailed rules for reopening. This includes about meeting in public indoor spaces. Further details to follow.
  • Maintain two metre social distancing and wear face masks in enclosed public places around the golf club and facility.
  • There will be no legal restrictions on travel within Wales for residents, but international travel should be for essential reasons only.

Wales Golf are currently updating their Guidance for clubs. This will be circulated in due course. The safety of all golfers remains paramount during this time.
