The following is a notice from England Golf and means our golf course will be closed for at least the next three weeks. This is a very sad day but not it is not adieu. We are doing all within our power to preserve the well being and income of our staff and maintain the course safely. We have been here for 125 years and we’ll be back once this virus is beaten.

Until then, stay safe and observe the Government’s guidelines rigidly. Stay at home unless you absolutely have to travel to work or to support the vulnerable. Finally, stand by your club. We have never needed you more.

England Golf COVID-19 update

Golf courses must close
England Golf guidance

Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement tonight (23 March), golf clubs and golf courses 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.

The government has identified an urgent need to introduce new restrictions on public life and on non-essential businesses opening their doors.

This has been done to limit the spread of the coronavirus and relieve the growing pressure on our National Health Service.

Keeping golf courses open is simply no longer compatible with the updated policy of government which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency.

The health and wellbeing of the nation is the only consideration that matters at this moment in our history.

These are incredibly testing times for the country. The golf industry cannot be shielded from the economic and social ramifications caused by this temporary shutdown of normal life.

We would like to assure the golfing community that England Golf staff will continue to work remotely with all affiliated golfers, clubs and counties to try and minimise the damage caused by this suspension of regular golf club life.

We will continue to signpost clubs and counties to the latest government advice and schemes designed to help the economy cope with the disruption caused by coronavirus.
