The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country.
From tonight, people will only be allowed to leave their homes for:
- shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
- one form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle, alone or with members of their household;
- any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person;
- travelling to and from work, but only where it is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home
This means that golf courses, which had been kept open, will now close.
England Golf commented on the new measures.
“Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement tonight (23 March), golf clubs, courses and facilities in England must now close.
It is England Golf’s position that this deeply regrettable, but highly necessary and responsible course of action must be implemented with immediate effect and be maintained until further notice.
