Golf courses can reopen from tomorrow (Monday).

Education, Sport and Culture Minister Dr Allinson announced the move at a press briefing yesterday.

He said: ’Throughout the restrictions we’ve been working with sports people and their organisations to try and allow some resumption of activities.

’Through close liaison with public health and organisers of recreational sport we’ve been able to risk assess various activities and decide which can restart in a limited format to ensure safety.’

Recreation fishing restarted at the weekend.

From Monday golf courses can reopen to single players or pairs of players from the same household.

’Clubs have shared ideas and examples from around the world for how the sport can be played in a safe and controlled way for all involved,’ said Dr Allinson.

’Over the coming weeks we will continue to work with those involved in water sports, athletics, crown bowls, tennis, shooting and archery to see how we can work together to bring these sports back safely.’
