Coronavirus FAQs on the Return of Golf on 2 December 2020
Following the good news from the UK Government that we can exit the second Lockdown on 2 December and Golf in England can return from 3 December, we are all going to have to get used to a new level of tier restrictions that may be in place until spring.
A question that a lot of us are asking is “Can I play golf in another Tier?”
Some of you may already be used to the tier concept, but the measures announced by the Government, and which will come into force on December 2, are said to be much tougher than those that preceded them.
The Covid tiers will still determine what applies to you and your club in England and they are still labelled Tier 1: Medium Alert, Tier 2: High Alert and Tier 3: Very High Alert.
So, in which tier is your golf club and how will this affect you?
England Golf have updated their Coronavirus FAQs to answer this for you.
The most pertinent recommendation are:
- That if you are in a very high alert area (Tier 3) you should avoid travelling outside your locality.
- Travelling into a very high alert area for the purposes of golf should be avoided.
- Golfers should avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK if resident in a very high alert level area or avoid staying overnight in a very high alert level area if resident elsewhere, and
- To find out which tier your golf club is in, please check the government’s postcode tracker
