GOLF AUSTRALIA CORONA VIRUS ADVICE

Dear members
As you are aware, COVID-19 or the Coronavirus as it is more commonly known has created global health concerns regarding the disease and its infection rates.
Golf Australia is writing to provide assistance and guidance to our clubs and facilities on this important topic.

It is Golf Australia’s recommendation to clubs and facilities that advice from the Australian Government’s Department of Health should be monitored closely over the coming weeks, as well as the Australian Government’s Smartraveller website.

If your members or guests have recently returned from China, Iran or have returned from a cruise holiday in the past 14 days, we recommend that they do not visit your facility – including use of the golf course only – until the 14 day period has elapsed.
We further recommend that members or guests recently returned from South Korea, Japan, Italy or Mongolia and who are experiencing flu-like symptoms do not visit your facility, including use of the golf course only, for 14 days.

For simple, easy to understand advice for your members and guests including important health tips, you can also refer to the World Health Organisation’s advice for the public website.

The virus and potential implications are changing constantly and will be monitored accordingly, and Golf Australia will continue to provide updates to clubs and facilities each fortnight from today, or alternatively when additional Federal Government updates are announced.

If you require additional information or have questions please do not hesitate to contact Golf Australia on (03) 9626 5000 or clubsupport@golf.org.au.

Kind regards,
Golf Australia
