The GUI & ILGU recognise the significant impact that the current Coronavirus / COVID-19 crisis is having on golf clubs across Ireland.

While areas within golf clubhouses may not be available due to the need for social distancing, the sport remains open and accessible.

Club membership has never been more important.

Golf club members can still play and enjoy their golf while acting within the guidelines issued by the Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland and Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland.

Visitors (e.g. societies, open days) either require some form of screening or should be discouraged for the time being.

16th March 2020 : COVID 19 Update

The current advice on golf courses is for the course to remain open.

The seniors competition and the bank holiday competition will go ahead Tuesday. The clubhouse bar will be closed.

The locker rooms will remain open for access to the computer and signing-in book.  Staff will be in the clubhouse to take green fees and phone calls etc. 

We ask all golfers to refrain from touching the flag poles and do not congregate in or around the clubhouse.  Please respect the personal space of any playing colleagues on the course and in the car park. 


12th March 2020 : Statement from GUI & ILGU

The Unions recognise the need for adherence to the revised guidelines as issued by the HSE today (12th March 2020) and encourage golf clubs to observe them fully.

The restrictions (from 6pm today until Sunday 29th March) do not prevent club competitions or casual rounds of golf taking place, however we need to be cogniscant of the social nature of our game and how this element of it is impacted.

Golf is a great sport for people generally to get out and about, exercise and enjoy fresh air. It is played in an outdoor setting where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is low.

All golf clubs should, at this time, aim to keep their members and staff safe and well.

As such, everyone should be keenly aware of the vulnerabilities golf clubs will face:

- The older age profile of golf club memberships than of the general population must be borne in mind
- Groups having close and prolonged contact should be avoided.
- The social aspect of golf clubs should be curtailed, including limiting the potential for the following types of social interaction in accordance with the guidelines as issued today.
- Siren starts with people congregating before and after are discouraged for the time being.
- Prolonged near contact as may happen during Bridge  nights, Choir practices and other clubhouse-based activities is to be avoided.
- Visitors either require some form of screening or should be discouraged for the time being.
- Society bookings where food and social interaction is involved afterwards should be limited in accordance with the latest guidance
- Common courtesies :
 handshakes and other embraces associated with the etiquette of the game should be avoided and participants may bump elbows or fists as an alternative.
- Social meals for groups in the clubhouse, including at inter-club matches, should be avoided

Golf Clubs should observe the need for the following:
- Increase social distancing through greater space between seating in the clubhouse
- Availability of hand sanitisers
- Regular changing of towels
- Ask members not to come into the clubhouse with colds or any symptoms of COVID-19
- Regular cleaning of surfaces including door handles
hourly in public places

All golf clubs should note, act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by the Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland) and the National Health Service and Public Health (Northern Ireland) in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

It is important that we all work together, following the advice of experts, in controlling the spread of COVID-19 infection.

This is a very fluid situation and we ask clubs to monitor the latest advice regularly.
