There were whoops of celebration from the South African golfing community on Friday after government gave the green light for golf courses around the country to reopen.

It comes as a major relief to not only the tens of thousands of amateurs, but golf courses around the country that had been financially crippled by the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. 

Golf courses will be allowed to open as soon as they have completed the Confirmation of Compliance Document and submitted it to GolfRSA - with many clubs having already done so. 

It means that golf is likely to resume as early as this weekend for many courses around the country.

However, players will need to adhere to strict protocols, as detailed below by GolfRSA.
