Dear member,

Due to today’s announcement by the First Minister that changes are now being made during Phase 3 that affect the hospitality industry I now detail below guidance issued by Scottish Golf to clarify the position.

Please note that all changes will come into force at Liberton Golf Club from Monday 14 September.

Clarity on Phase 3 Guidance for Golf in Scotland

Following the First Minister’s update in Parliament today (10 September), Scottish Golf would like to clarify that on-course golf activity can continue under our current Phase 3 Guidance, with up to four players from four different household allowed to participate together.

Golf Clubs with hospitality venues should also note that the following changes are effective from Monday 14 September:

A maximum of six people from two households can meet both indoors and outdoors.

Staff will be required by law to wear face coverings.

Customers will be required to wear face coverings while moving around inside a hospitality venue such as entering or exiting a venue or going to the toilet.

We thank all affiliated clubs for their ongoing cooperation during these challenging times.

Council would confirm that anyone entering the building not wearing a face covering will be asked to apply one immediately until seated at their table. Although on course activity is unaffected, while sitting inside the clubhouse or at outside tables there must be no more than two households at each table. Members should not move tables at any time. Anyone not adhering to any of these guidelines will be asked to leave the premises.

Many thanks for your co-operation during these difficult times.



Stuart McDonald, CMDip
