Golf at Level 2

May 11, 2020

The announcement today was what we had all been waiting for and a chance to get some normality back into our lives.

At Level 2, playing golf can be played with friends from outside of our bubbles and the handicap system is live, however, there are still measures to ensure the health and safety of us all and while it’s a natural desire to get back into business as quickly as possible, not everything will happen overnight.

The most important principle is to play it safe and remain physically distant from others.
