Scottish Golf has informed clubs their Covid guidance remains unchanged following the latest update from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. The governing body says it doesn't anticipate any further changes in the Protection Level system until July 19. In a communication to affiliated clubs, it also addressed the increase in enquiries regarding on-course furniture such as rakes and pins. "We would take this opportunity to advise that our guidance (along with that of the other Home Nations) also remains unchanged at this time," a statement said. "These should remain out of use to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 and we do not foresee this position changing until we move to Level 0." Scottish Golf added: "Any club who has chosen to re-introduce rakes or permit the removal of pins, should ensure they have undertaken a full risk assessment and have checked with their local authority, health and safety advisors or insurance provider to be sure that they are in no way negating any public health liability cover they might have in place. "The latest indication we have from the Scottish Government is that all local authority areas will move to Level 0 from 19 July 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep all clubs updated should anything change." To see the latest Covid-19 updates from Scottish Golf, click here.
