The R&A is providing golfers, golf clubs and greenkeepers with guidance and information to support them with the safe resumption of playing golf during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is important that everyone continues to carefully follow the measures that the government in each country has put in place in relation to physical activity.
There is a huge amount of expertise within golf clubs and facilities and this best practice guidance simply aims to achieve as consistent an approach as possible to protecting everyone.

Playing Golf with Covid-19 Restrictions
Golf clubs and facilities can read and follow the guidance provided on operations and resuming play as they restart their businesses and ensure that the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved is protected.
Please also read the UK Government clarification on outdoor recreation and rules on social distancing in England.
Greenkeepers can read and follow the Essential Maintenance Guidelines to help them safely prepare their courses for play. For more information about course conditions please click here.
The fund will be largely aimed at national associations and other affiliated bodies in Great Britain and Ireland.
The fund is being provided to help The R&A’s affiliated national associations to support those clubs and facilities, although some of the money may be used for other activities key to the future health of the sport.
The R&A is working with its national associations and other selected organisations on communications, with each body being responsible for controlling and allocating its share. Click the appropriate link below to find out more information from your national association.
