The fairways across all four corners of Ireland will be open on Wednesday after Northern Ireland was given the green light to resume play with further restrictions to be lifted in NI this week.
The Golfing Union of Ireland have stated that regulations that must be amended in order to resume play will not be in place on time for a Tuesday restart but it’s still good news for golf in the North, albeit with players having to endure another day’s wait.
It now leaves Scotland as the only country in Great Britain and Ireland still playing the waiting game with its neighbours all happily back on the fairways.
Over the weekend, the GUI published safe return to play protocols for golf in Northern Ireland and First Minister Arlene Foster has echoed the importance of sticking to these guidelines to ensure golf can continue into a prosperous summer.
As with golf in the Republic, it will be members only with no competitions permitted, however, unlike the south, no travel restriction will be in place.
