CURRENT ADVICE:Wednesday September 8th 2021

We have confirmation from Golf Australia in reference to the DHHS easing of restrictions for Regional Victoria.
Below is an excerpt from the GA website

Victorian Government Announcement – Wednesday 8th September
While metropolitan Melbourne remains locked down it is pleasing to advise that today the Premier announced changes to restrictions affecting community sport (including golf) in Regional Victoria except for the Greater Shepparton LGA as from 11.59pm, Thursday 9th September. Regional facilities may operate under strict restrictions.
Golf Australia, the PGA and WPGA continue to work closely with the Victorian government to accelerate the return of Golf in Victoria. We support the Government’s vaccination program and believe this is the best pathway to a full return for our sport.

Operations Advice – Regional Victoria
• Regional clubs and facilities may operate from 11.59pm, Thursday 9th September.
• Play in 4s.
• No competition golf may be played.
• Spectators are prohibited except for one parent permitted to supervise children.
• Coaching – outdoors only limited to 10 people plus the coach.
