GUI confirms golf course closures under Level 5 restrictions

I Dreamed a Dream*

'It feels as if we have forsaken this beautiful game. We haven’t. We’ve just been biding our time under a swell of anger. Who among us has not practised a swing with nothing in our empty hands but hope?'

High time golf made a comeback

'My hope is that we’ll be playing golf again next week, and that those funnelling into green spaces with nowhere else to go will be given a few more options'

An Ode to Dustin Johnson

'Certain factions of the media take great pleasure in the portrayal of Dustin – and brother and caddie Austin on occasion – as being a little dim witted at best, and downright dumb at worst. This is a particular pet hate'

So Rory, where did it all go wrong?

Net worth of over $100million, four Majors, fourth best golfer in the world and on his Christmas holidays in mid-November, all at 31 years young. Still, no green jacket

Following intensive engagement over the past 48 hours, the GUI and ILGU have been informed by Sport Ireland that, very regrettably, golf clubs must close under the new level 5 restrictions.​

  1. Absolutely comical like the government this doesnt make one bit of sense and they expect us to buy into these restrictions i think everyone has had enough of this now and its probably all because of golfgate which is the real reason why golf courses are being shut down not because of any other reason. Personally im not going to adhere to restrictions sue me.

  2. Does anyone know what the government’s reasoning is for closing golf courses ?
    They are happy for schools to be opened (indoors) upto 25 kids
    Gaelic football and hurling (contact sport)
    Not to mention THAT essential buisness off licence.
    And yet they close golf courses which is by far the safest and also very good for health.

  3. Yeah its make non/sense. You can walk on the footpath 5km diameter where you meet more people than on the golf course. But you can’t play golf where you always stay away from each others. Just two words Stupid government.

  4. ridiculous , for me it’s very damaging. 63 yrs of age and Golf is all I have since March. Just dont know how I am going to cope.
    Mental health ?????????

  5. We have Rugby , Hurling and Football being played all contact sports and not Golf
    Maybe it’s the power of these organisations
