Note: This relates to golf in the Republic of Ireland only, other clubs copied for information purposes.

We note with regret that the Irish Government have reinstated the original Level 5 restrictions, which confirms the closure of golf courses along with all other sporting facilities in the Republic of Ireland. The Department of Sport have confirmed to us that the restriction on golf and other sports will be effective from midnight tonight (30th Dec).

We urge all of our affiliated clubs to continue to adhere to the public health restrictions and we will remain engaged with the government authorities of both jurisdictions to ensure the return of our sport across the island of Ireland as soon as possible.
