COVID-19 Update for Queensland Clubs & Facilities

Golf Australia is writing to provide further assistance and guidance to Queensland golf clubs and facilities regarding the Queensland Governments’ Stage 2 easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

To date Queensland Golf Clubs have done an amazing job in managing the strict restrictions in place due to COVID-19 which has allowed many golfers to have access the game they love through these extraordinary times. Golf Australia and our clubs/facilities must ensure that the Queensland Government requirements continue to be met to ensure that the risk of transmission continues to be minimised.

COVID Safe Industry Plans

From Friday 5 June, golf clubs and facilities operating under an approved COVID Safe Industry Plan will be allowed up to 20 patrons in multiple defined areas.

There is no need for golf clubs and facilities to prepare and lodge with government an individual COVID Safe Plans. Golf Clubs and facilities must adopt two (2) COVID-19 Industry Safe Plans:

  1. The Industry COVID Safe Plan for Queensland Hotels and Clubs

Prior to operating under the new regulations, golf clubs must ‘opt in’ to the Plans by completing the Statement of Compliance included in each Plan.

Clubs must also ensure compliance with the Plan. Clubs are encouraged to complete the checklists within the Plans to ensure compliance.
