Events and Workshops (COVID-19) Updates

Last guidance update: Thursday 19 March, 10:00


The COVID-19 outbreak and the stringent measures introduced by the government this week to limit its spread have had a knock-on effect on our ability deliver a number of events outside of championships.

As a result of the necessary change to our working practices we can announce the following:

  • The England Golf AGM and GM scheduled for April 23 at Woodhall Spa has been postponed
  • World Handicap System workshops and course ratings will cease for the time being
  • SPC and Time To Listen workshops have been postponed
  • Staff face-to-face meetings at clubs and with contacts in the golf industry have also been cancelled
  • NB – Club Support Officers (CSOs) will be working remotely and are still available to offer guidance, help and support for clubs

More details on alternative online arrangements and re-scheduled events will follow in due course.

Regrettably, key grassroots projects in association with our partners have also been affected:

  • Girls Golf Rocks and ‘Road to the Open’ projects due to launch this spring in association with the Golf Foundation and The R&A have been postponed
  • Clubs and facilities involved in these initiatives will be updated when the situation is appropriate.
