Update – 24th December 2020:
Update to guidance for Golf Clubs in the Republic of Ireland during Level 5
Sport Ireland have today (24th December) issued a further update to the current Level 5 measures, which will remain in place until 12th January 2021. This will require golf clubs to urgently note the following additional points:
We have made Sport Ireland aware of the issues regarding the implementation of this change in the short-term as timesheets for golf club activities are likely in operation for at least the next several days. However, we are urging golf clubs to update their timesheet booking systems to take account of this changed guidance as soon as possible.
These additional requirements from Sport Ireland come against a backdrop of escalating public health challenges with the incidence of COVID-19 rising exponentially in Ireland. Golf Ireland therefore strongly encourages golf clubs to implement this change, and in doing so continue to exhibit the high level of compliance that has made it possible for our sport to continue to remain open and accessible during the current Level 5 measures.
The above update must be read in conjunction with our previous statement issued on 22 December below.
Statement from 22nd December 2020
Following continued discussions with government authorities and Sport Ireland, Golf Ireland welcomes the fact that golf courses and facilities will be permitted to remain open as the Republic of Ireland moves again to Level 5 on a phased basis from 24 December.
The guidance issued by Golf Ireland on 27 November 2020 continues to apply to all golf clubs (see here: https://www.golfireland.ie/news-detail?newsarticleid=69&tags=Golf%20Ireland%20HQ ), with the following important updates:
At 3pm on 24 December, Restaurants and pubs operating as restaurants will close. After this point, clubhouse access should once again 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. Outdoor dining is not permitted, and golfers should depart the facility following the conclusion of their game as soon as possible.
From 26th December, inter-county travel restrictions will be reintroduced and will, as always, apply to sporting activity.
While all retail, including pro shops, are permitted to remain open, the Government is asking all retailers to defer any plans for January sales events (see www.gov.ie for more).
Further guidance will be issued to clubs in line as and when government change the current Level 5 status.
Clubs seeking guidance on Annual General Meetings are encouraged to email email@example.com for support.
2021 is almost upon us, so many people will be glad to see 2020 behind us with all the difficulties that it brought with it. We are not out of the woods yet, but we are hopeful that we can have a good golfing year again despite the challenges and uncertainties that we are faced with.
Our traditional Captain’s Drive-in will not take place on January 1st, with restrictions and member safety firmly in our minds we need to postpone this event.
We will, as soon as practically possible have our Drive-in and celebrate the start to another golfing season.
For now, we wish that you all stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.
