The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf has created a coronavirus FAQ with handy links and resources A COVID page including links to resources and guidance, as well as group statements, papers and answers to frequently asked questions, has been created by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf. The information, which can be found on the group’s website, provides answers on why golf can be played in one country but not another, as well as what clubs and golfers can do to try and encourage the Government to change its position on golf being played in England during lockdown. It also seeks to provide updates to when golf might be allowed to resume and the action the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf is taking to get courses open again.
