With the government set to announce that it will be made illegal to socialise in groups larger than six as of Monday, England Golf made a statement to clarify what effect the new COVID-19 regulations will have on golfers and golf clubs across the country.

The sport is set to continue but precautions and safety guidelines will be put in place to ensure the government's regulations are followed, which means society groups and those travelling on golf breaks may have to make adjustements.

England Golf took to Twitter on Thursday, saying: "Following the government's announcement to changes in COVID-19 rules released yesterday, we are providing the following advice for golf clubs & golfers in England: Note: we are awaiting further clarification on how the new rulings affect coaching groups & will update when known.

“From Monday 14th September, competitive and social golf can continue to be played in accordance with our existing ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ guidelines provided on course groupings do not exceed the new legal limit of six people,” England Golf said in a statement.

“Clubhouses may continue to accommodate multiple social groups provided each individual group is no larger than six people. Individual groups should not join up with others to form gatherings of more than six people and everyone must continue to follow government regulations on social distancing and sanitisation.

“Society and team event organisers should take special care to ensure different groups of up to six people from within their party do not merge to form larger groups before, during or after the round. Travel to and from golf venues should continue to be in accordance with government regulations."
