Even social golfers would be relieved that they would still be able to enjoy a round, although amidst stricter rules and without their favourite alcohol beverage. The union reminded all golf players and staff to adhere strictly to the GolfRSA Risk Mitigation Guidelines.
Concerning the GolfRSA physical distancing and wearing of masks rules, the wearing of masks at the clubhouse of any golf establishment is mandatory. Out on the golf course, the new implemented rules require a couple of safety measures that must be adhered to. Players will have to wear a mask if they are not able to maintain a physical distance of more than three metres. This includes windy conditions with windspeeds of 24 kilometres per hour or more where players cannot maintain a physical distance of more than five metres.
When players are able to maintain the above prescribed distances, no masks are required. GolfRSA clearly stated that these new rules do not replace any of the rules set by the South African Government.
