Golf Australia Update – Regarding Covid-19 for QLD Golf Clubs & Facilities

Update – Regarding Covid-19 for QLD Golf Clubs & Facilities

Dear Queensland Golf Clubs and Facilities,

Golf Australia is writing to provide further assistance and guidance to Queensland Golf Clubs and facilities regarding complying with the Queensland Stage 4 easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

We remind all Queensland Golf Clubs and facilities to please continue to adhere to the following:

Since Queensland progressed to Stage 4 easing of Covid-19 restrictions we have had a number of enquiries around shared equipment (i.e. Flagsticks and bunker rakes).  Following review of the updated Covid-safe plan – Outdoor Sports and discussions with Queensland Government, Golf Australia’s recommendation is for Clubs to continue the use of these Covid-19 Local Rules as it the most adequate way to meet the Covid Safe Plans practices around hygiene and sanitisation of shared equipment under currect restrictions.

Where an event is outside of the scope or not solely covered by the Approved COVID Safe Plans for reasons such as but not limited to having larger than 500 people (indoor events) or 1000 people (outdoor events), read the Industry Framework for COVID Safe Events which provides guidance on organising Covid Safe Events.

Further information on the Covid-19 restrictions for sport, recreation and fitness activities can be found at Queensland Return to Play
