Golf Club Petition
Published 12:04 on 1 Nov 2020
A petition has been started to exempt golf courses from the list of venues required to close due to Covid-19, which has attracted 100,000 signatures in less than 12 hours.
Golf has been shown as a safe place to exercise during these difficult times and was one of the first sports to reopen on 13 May. I'm sure you are aware of the toll on mental well-being during this crisis and golf is an outlet for many people that would otherwise be isolated indoors. Exercise is permitted, as is outdoor socialising with one other person from another household. To ban golf is ridiculous when people can walk on a course but not play golf on it.
We want to put pressure on MP's in the debate on the new Co-vid legislation tomorrow and we can do that by getting this petition over 1 million.
Please sign this petition and forward it on to your friends and family urgently using this URL:
