Scottish Golf has issues guidance to member clubs on Thursday 23 July 2020, reinforcing the current directive that locker rooms within golf clubs must remain closed at the present time.
The following communication was circulated:-
Dear Member Clubs,
There have been a number of enquiries in recent days with regards to locker rooms and confusion as to whether they are permitted to be back in operation and we felt it was appropriate to provide an update to all clubs on this topic.
In anticipation of Scotland entering Phase 3 of its route map out of lockdown, Scottish Golf provided all clubs with a Readiness Guide to support you in preparing for the reopening of Clubhouse Facilities. This Guide, which was subject to change, was issued in advance of announcements by Scottish Government to give all clubs as much time as possible to prepare for several significant changes that would impact on how your clubhouse operates. It was however issued noting that it was subject to final approval once public announcements had been made.
Following the announcement that we would be entering Phase 3, Public Health Scotland and the Scottish Government later confirmed that locker rooms must remain closed at this time.
As and when this guidance is changed, we will inform all clubs. We thank you for your continued understanding at this time and should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Scottish Golf Team
