Golf is back!

Industry members in the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf have welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement today (23 November) that golf clubs and other facilities in England may reopen from 2 December.

The announcement paves the way for golf to return at all COVID-19 alert levels within the Rule of Six, permitting fourball play without restriction on number of households.

This is great news for Colne Golf Club obviously and if you would like to read the full statement from England Golf please click here.

Best regards,

Lockdown

Dear All,

It seems that the admirable challenge to the latest lockdown restrictions by the CEO of England Golf has fallen on deaf ears.

The club is now closed for golf and hospitality from today the 5th November until the 2nd of December 2020.

Prime Minister Mr Johnson is unable to say what would happen next, other than to “hope” there would be no need to extend the restrictions.

I sincerely hope that you all keep well and have a beloved hobby to fill the time..fortunately mine is Fly Fishing!

Best regards,

Captain

Lockdown

Dear All,

No doubt you will have heard or read the saddening news with regards to the forthcoming Covid-19 ‘National Lockdown’ commencing Thursday 5th November 2020.

I understand that the guidance that followed the statement described that golf courses were on a list of venues which should close.

Jeremy Tomlinson, CEO England Golf is spearheading a challenge to this guidance citing the lack of consultation with England Golf and the apparent contradiction within the Prime Minister’s own encouragement of safe and responsible outdoor exercise.

We can only wait and hope that the challenge is successful. The full statement and indeed open letter to all golfers can be found by clicking here.

Keep well and safe.

Regards,

Captain.
