The news many of us have been dreading sounds imminent with widespread reports suggesting that the GUI and ILGU have lost the battle to keep golf courses open amid Level 5 Restrictions.
The sport is amongst a number of codes feeling the impact of the latest restrictions with all sport set to close with the exception of elite and professional sports. That means other outdoor disciplines like tennis, hockey and sailing will also return to lockdown.
It’s understood that the GUI and ILGU had presented a strong case to Sport Ireland who in turn dealt with the Government in the hopes of keeping golf going throughout the six week lockdown period, but those efforts now seem in vain.
We’ll have the full report as soon as we get it.
