COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidance for Golf Facilities

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This guidance about Coronavirus has been put together by BIGGA‘s Karl Hansell, alongside the PGA, GCMA and The R&A.

What should you do in a health emergency?

It has been estimated that 25% of small businesses don’t reopen after a serious emergency and we don’t want golf clubs to be on that list.

Plan ahead and put procedures into operation and you give your organization every chance of securing the facility for golfers to enjoy for years to come.

Ensuring your golf business can survive large-scale staff absence

A golf club is a close community, with a small number of staff and volunteers working extremely hard to maintain a facility that provides enjoyment and relaxation to customers.

It’s also a highly-skilled working environment, with staff who are professionally trained to complete each of their daily roles and without whom the entire operation would grind to a halt.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a life-threatening respiratory illness that can cause fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

In an attempt to stem the spread of the virus, extensive guidance has been published for anyone who has potentially come into contact with a carrier. In addition to good personal hygiene, self-isolation is seen as the best way to contain the spread. If that happens at a golf facility, the club could find itself without its entire greenkeeping, catering and/or clubhouse staff for an extended period and its long-term security could be placed at risk.
