Updated Covid-19 Playing Restrictions

Please read the updated instructions for conditions of play under the current Government and golf governing bodies' restrictions. These take effect from the 1st June 2020



A Guide to Playing Golf at Clwb Golff Abersoch while the current Covid-19 restrictions are in place.

These stages of easing the lockdown in the sport we all love, will be difficult and unfamiliar, but the restrictions need to be adhered to if we are to progress to a time when we can resume playing and socialising as before.

The Golf governing bodies have been in consultation with the Government and have drawn up safeguards that must be in place to allow play to commence. These safeguards, in addition to the risk assessments we have undertaken specifically for Abersoch, are designed for the safety and well being of our members, staff and visitors, and will be modified as further restrictions are lifted following advice from government, health authorities and governing bodies. The following “Road Map” to playing may help golfers to understand what is expected of them and the restrictions that are in place.
