For the most updated information please refer to the Golf Australia COVID-19 page.

Golf clubs across Australia are experiencing a boom in the number of people out playing golf as the social distancing measures to combat the coronavirus take place.

The golf course seems like a good place to spend time while governments and local community navigate their way through more measures to mitigate infection and deaths from COVID-19.

Many pro shops have been reporting they’d never been busier with tee times fully booked and an unprecedented number of golfers on the golf course. Some are ensuring the safety of golfers is a priority by directing golfers to keep their hands off the flagstick. While others have just taken away the flagsticks and bunker rakes altogether.

But like uncertainty is everywhere right now, even in golf – as Rod Morri summed up nicely in his regular piece for Golf Australia Magazine.

The accessibility of golf courses in Australia is changing constantly, and the best, most updated source of information is via Australia’s golf governing body, Golf Australia.

Golf Australia has a dedicated COVID-19 page bringing the latest news for Australian golf clubs and golfers.
