Most Clubs in the Golf West Gippsland District have implemented the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services directive issued on Friday night (March 27), that all Golf West Gippsland courses are CLOSED until midnight April 13th 2020.
These measures are a part of the Victorian Government’s Stage 2 restrictions regarding COVID-19.
Golfers should monitor the Golf Australia Website for specific information – https://www.golf.org.au/covid-19 and particularly for any changes that affect golf in Victoria.
While the information on the Golf Australia website includes references to other states, remember we in Golf West Gippsland are subject only to directives by the Victorian Government and specifically the Department of Health and Human Services.
The directive that prohibits social sports gatherings applies to golf clubs and facilities, which are classified as ‘recreational facilities’ under clause 5 of the directive. A copy of the directive is located here.
