CANCELLATION OF COMPETITION GOLFby Sue Cooper @ 06:03 PM, 17th Nov 2020
CANCELLATION OF COMPETITION GOLF – EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 17
McCracken Golf Club has decided to cancel all club competitions in line with current Government restrictions issued on November 16 2020, until further notice.
An extract from Golf Australia is below.
The SAPOL COVID-19 Coordination group have confirmed with Golf Australia that no organised competitive sport should be taking place under the current directives and that any sport should only be recreational in nature. It is therefore a recommendation from Golf Australia that all club competitions should be cancelled for the period of the current directive and that play may continue in recreational manner only. Conforming social scorecards may continue to be submitted for handicapping purposes if a club chooses to provide the service.
It would be expected that leaving the flags in, not using ball washers and rakes (if present) would be a sensible thing to do if playing recreational game of golf.
