The PGA has confirmed that both indoor golf coaching along with golf retail and club fitting will be permitted across all three Tiers when the sport returns in England from this Wednesday. 

Tier 1 classes will be able to take place but must follow the 'Rule of Six', so this means up to five participants plus the golf coach. Tier 2 and Tier 3 both permit one-to-one golf coaching, along with coaching a group from the same household.

Golf retail and club fitting can also return across all tiers from Wednesday, however, COVID-19 procedures must be in place.
