Golf After Lockdown
Golf in England set to resume on March 29th with fourballs allowed as Prime Minister Boris Johnson reveals the roadmap.
The roadmap is the government's way of explaining how they are going to exit the current UK lockdown and return to everyday life safely. Amongst the first stage, outdoor sports can resume, with golf being included in that category, phew. Johnson’s roadmap states that you can meet up to a maximum of six people, or two households, as long as the meetings are held outside. This means that 4 balls on the course can resume and golf can return, YES!
Data allowing, golf clubhouses and hospitality venues will then be allowed to reopen in step two on April 12th at the earliest, serving food and beverages outside, with pro shops also allowed to reopen their doors
For many of which enjoy visiting the 19th hole (clubhouse) more than the actual activity, well, we have some bad news. Clubhouses and bars respectively will not be allowed to open again until step three, which is set be no earlier than May 17th.
The fourth and final step of the roadmap will see Government lift all limits on social contact indoors and outdoors.
What does this mean for Snainton Golf? On March 29th the driving range and course will open following the social distancing guidelines. There will be a one way in and out system to the driving range to make sure all customers are protected. The store will remain closed until April 12th at the earliest but online sales will continue as normal.
In the meantime, why not brush up on your golf at home. We have a wide range of training aids to help progress your game while the courses aren’t open.
