Framework for Playing Golf - Updated (10th September 2020)

England Golf's latest advice is laid out here in light of the changes to group sizes introduced yesterday.

It reads

From Monday 14 September, golf clubs should be cognisant of a change in the law which limits the size of indoor and outdoor group gatherings in England to six people.

On the course: Golf can continue to be played in accordance with existing ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ guidance. Groupings must not consist of more than six people.

Off the course: Clubhouses can continue to cater for multiple groups each containing a maximum of six people from different households. However, golfers in one group must avoid merging with golfers from another group to create a single gathering in excess of six people.

Society and team event organisers should take special care to ensure different groups of six from within their party do not merge to form larger groups before, during or after a round. Travel to and from golf venues should continue to be in accordance with government regulations.

England Golf are awaiting further clarification on how the new rulings affect committee meetings and group coaching and will provide an update if and when this becomes available.
