Scottish Golf has issued a COVID-19 update in response to the COVID-19 statement given by the First Minister of Scotland in Parliament yesterday.

The statement issued by Scottish Golf reads as follows:

"Following the First Minister's latest update on COVID-19 restrictions, please note that there is no change to the current position for golf. This means:"
  • "Golf courses can remain open for play with a maximum of two players from up to two households "
  • "Outdoor coaching will be restricted to 2 people (including the coach) for those 12 years or over. Under 12s do not count towards the number so a coach can take larger groups of up to 30 U12s"
  • "Golfers must stay close to home, travel only for essential purposes (which includes golf as part of the permitted exercise activities) and in line with the new legislation"
"The next update is not anticipated until mid-March. Should anything change, we will keep clubs up to date on our COVID-19 page below."
