Championships & Performance (COVID-19) Updates

Last guidance update: Tuesday 23 June, 16:30

 

England Golf has issued a revised schedule of 2020 championship events from week commencing 27 July.

This new schedule remains provisional and subject to further change in accordance with the latest government and expert medical advice on the COVID-19 outbreak.

England Golf’s priority at this time remains to assist the national effort to combat the threat of Coronavirus and ensure we protect our NHS and save lives during the pandemic.

However, should there be a relaxation to the restrictions on public life in the weeks ahead, our aim is to make sure we are well placed to serve our community of elite and handicap golfers.

A total of 16 England Golf events have been provisionally rescheduled for late summer and early autumn.

Eight events from the original 2020 calendar remain in place.

A further three events have yet to be allocated new dates and will be added to the schedule in due course.

Unfortunately, it has been necessary to cancel 31 of our national and regional events.

The full list of provisional and revised dates and venues for the 22 events that currently remain on the schedule for 2020 can be found detailed below:
