“Scottish Golf welcomes today’s announcement from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, confirming that Scotland will move into Phase 2 of its route map out of lockdown from Friday 19 June.
“Over the past few weeks, our golfing community has benefitted from the extension to exercise and on the whole adhered to our Phase 1 guidelines. With the wider public health and wellbeing of the whole nation remaining the critical focus, that collective effort has enabled golfers to take advantage of the physical and mental health benefits the game has to offer.
“Scottish Golf continues to work with our partners in Government and at sportscotland to update our relevant guidance documents for golf in Phase 2. As the underlying detail of today’s announcement is considered, we ask for patience from golf clubs and golfers at this time. We will ensure that an updated guidance document is issued to all affiliated clubs as soon as is practically possible.”
