Details from Scottish Golf on how the changes announced yesterday by Scottish Government apply to golf.
Key points from the SGL statement:
“Our updated guidance means that from Friday 16th April, the following changes will take place:
Adults living in Level 3 or Level 4 areas may leave their local authority area to participate in informal exercise that starts and finishes in the same place.
Groups can consist of up to 4 golfers from within Scotland, with no restrictions on number of households.
Golf continues to benefit from being classified as informal exercise by the Scottish Government and we recognise that this is a privileged position in comparison to some other sports at this time.
This means that players from outwith the club’s local authority area can now travel to participate in a casual game of golf. However, where cross-border travel is required, competitive play will not be permitted at this time. We anticipate that from the 26th April, subject to further announcements, this restriction will also be lifted.”
