A report in The Sunday Times reveals golf will return in England in two-balls at the end of March. 

Golf has been shut down in England since the country went into a third national lockdown, but there is now hope that outdoor sports such as golf and tennis will be back up and running in around five weeks' time.

"A second easing of social distancing rules is expected at the end of next month with the resumption of outdoor sports — such as golf and tennis — for two people from different households," reads The Sunday Times article. 

This new report goes as long with the rumour of golf's return in England that was published several weeks ago. 

It is anticipated UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce a new roadmap on February 22, which is likely to see golf courses reopen for two-balls in the first wave after schools have reopened on March 8. 

A new scientific study, released in January, confirmed that golf is safe to return - READ HERE.

 

 

"All schoolchildren will return to the classroom on March 8 under plans to start lifting the lockdown, Boris Johnson will announce in a national address next week," reads The Sunday Times report. 

"Under the government’s blueprint to reopen society, adults will initially have only small new freedoms so as to prioritise the return of schools — a move ministers know will raise the coronavirus R number for infections.

"Adults will be allowed to sit down outdoors for a coffee or on a park bench with one friend, or with members of their own family — a slight relaxation of the current rule, which permits outdoor meetings only while standing up."

The BBC confirmed today that more than 15 million people in the UK have now had their first coronavirus vaccine, in what Johnson described as a "significant milestone".
