Play Safe, Stay Safe update

In light of the prime minister’s latest update on national COVID-19 restrictions, England Golf can confirm that the current ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ guidance will remain unchanged.

We will continue to work with golf industry colleagues and liaise with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as we look towards 19 July – the next projected date on the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

We sincerely hope that from this date it will be possible to withdraw all ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ frameworks – including the restrictions on the removal of flagsticks, use of rakes and pre-booking of tee times – as clubs return to their own pre-pandemic protocols.
