England Golf has been seeking clarity and advice on the implications of the localised ‘lockdown’ in Leicester and surrounding areas as this situation has evolved. We will continue to work with government, local authorities and the police but our current advice on playing golf in the local area is below.
The local lockdown measures do not currently require golf clubs or facilities to close, so they may remain open and continue to operate for the time being •
Pro shops at golf clubs and facilities must close for retail purposes. Bars, restaurants and other hospitality facilities such as Clubhouses must remain closed and may not re-open on 4 July
Players should not travel either into or out of the ‘lockdown area’ defined by government in order to play golf
This advice may change as the situation and overall advice develops.
