MyGolf set for relaunch
by Golf Australia
Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia are pleased to announce that the national junior program MyGolf has been relaunched in all states and territories, apart from Queensland.
MyGolf was one of many sport and recreation programs shut down across the nation because of government restrictions around the Covid-19 pandemic.
But the federal government’s three-step roadmap to ease limitations includes the reintroduction of golf, provided it is played in accordance with each state and territory’s public health advice.
For many golf clubs and facilities, outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people are now permitted, thereby enabling MyGolf to return in most states.
Junior golfers will no longer be restricted to practising in backyards, as parents and guardians can again register them online as clubs resume their programs.
Each MyGolf facility has been provided with a set of coaching safety guidelines to reference throughout the program, including general hygiene, access rules and other important resources.
Golf is uniquely positioned to be played during times of social distancing and is set up well to cater for government requirements – such as 1.5m separation – through the Covid-19 period. It is CRITICAL that these guidelines are followed to ensure the sport can continue to be played during the recovery period.
Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia are looking forward to the return of junior and beginner golfers to facilities across the country to participate and learn through MyGolf. Both organisations thank the MyGolf community for its patience and understanding throughout this trying time.
