Some time-honoured events sadly won't be played in 2020.

Golf Australia is closely monitoring all developments of the Covid-19 virus.

After the World Health Organisation officially declared this corona virus a global pandemic, the mandate is clear for all governing bodies to make decisions based on communal health and safety.

It is Golf Australia’s protocol that all events necessarily involving crowds or large-scale interstate travel are now under strict review.

A formal decision will be made – and announced – soon on a series of national events scheduled for April, including the Australian Junior Amateur Championships in South Australia (girls) and the ACT (boys) and the subsequent Junior Interstate Series tournaments.

The Australian Interstate Series, scheduled for May in Sydney, is also under review with a separate decision expected shortly afterwards.

Other key events will be addressed as necessitated by future developments.

Golf Australia will, along with its partners in the Australian golf industry, continue to make decisions based on the welfare of all involved in the sport.

Anyone seeking additional advice is encouraged to email questions to info@golf.org.au where specific information can be offered.
