Following the Irish Government’s announcement today in relation to increased restrictions due to COVID-19, golf clubs and golfers located in Dublin City and County must adhere to the following:

  • Golfers residing within Dublin must not travel outside their county of residence to play golf

  • Golfers residing outside Dublin must not travel to the county to play golf

  • Clubs may continue activities which are qualifying for handicapping purposes but all participants must abide by the domestic travel restrictions at Level 3 (see first two points above).

  • All-Ireland GUI Inter-Club matches are covered by separate guidance which has been issued separately by GUI Leinster Golf to clubs involved.

  • Members, their guests and staff with colds or any symptoms of COVID-19 must stay away from the golf course/clubhouse

  • Physical distancing rules are observed by all members and their guests at all times in the car park, clubhouse and on the course.

  • Personnel are on hand to monitor adherence with physical distancing rules and the rules for golfers set out in this document.

  • Tee times are booked in advance online or over the telephone. Clubs must ensure that players names (including members’ guests) are recorded on timesheets and timesheets must be kept for a period of at least 6 weeks to assist with contact tracing should the need arise.

  • Daily timesheets are restricted to a minimum of 8, 9 or 10 minute intervals. Clubs may only choose one interval for each day. If clubs choose 8+ minute intervals, play is restricted to 2 golfers per start time. If clubs choose 9+ minutes, up to 3 golfers may play per start time. If clubs choose 10+ minutes, up to 4 golfers may play per start time.

  • Those aged 70 years and over and the medically vulnerable should exercise judgement regarding the extent to which they engage with others and in activities outside home. Specific Government guidance will be provided.

  • Training: Outdoors – non-contact training only in pods of up to 15. Indoors – individual training only.
  • All cafes and restaurants, including bars operating as restaurants, should only offer takeaway or delivery, or outdoor dining (maximum 15 people with strict physical distancing – please consult for details).

  • Clubhouse access should be confined to use of toilet facilities (provided they can be kept clean) and initial retrieval of golf equipment from lockers. If toilet facilities are open, clubs should adopt a one-in, one-out approach.
  • There are no social gatherings, of any size, at the facility.

  • Players are instructed not to touch the flag or flagstick.

  • Rakes are removed from the course. Players are requested to smooth bunkers using their feet or a club. (See Appendix 2 as previously published for measures which can be taken in qualifying situations)

  • Hire trolleys (electric and pull trolleys) must be sanitised prior to each use.
