GOLF clubs throughout the country are to shut due to COVID-19 crisis.

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's statement on Monday evening, golf clubs, courses and facilities will close with immediate effect.

While golf is a sport with many health benefits, keeping golf courses open is no longer compatible with Government policy which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency.

“These are incredibly testing times for the country and the golf industry but, during this unprecedented period, we will be working very closely with all affiliated clubs,” said Wales Golf chief executive Richard Dixon.

“Wales Golf staff will be working remotely to support and advise clubs as much as possible.”
