Latest Covid-19 Advice from Queensland Health

Thursday, October 01, 2020

As of 1 October 2020, Queensland progressed to Stage 4 easing of COVID-19 restrictions. The following advice is based on those restrictions: 

Queensland Golf Clubs and facilities are to continue to adhere to the following:

  • In most cases, clubs and facilities are required to have two Covid-19 Safe Plans in place;

  1. The Industry COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Sports

  2. The Industry COVID Safe Plan for Queensland Hotels and Clubs

  • For further guidance on adherence to the Covid-Safe Plans, please Click Here to view Golf Australia Covid-19 Safe Plan Guidance- Stage 4 QLD

  • Continue promoting to your members and customers that if they are unwell, they should not participate or attend your Golf Club or facility.

  • Ensure the collection of ALL attendees contact details is occurring and can be provided to a public health official within the required 60 minutes of the request. Public Health Units across the State as well as Queensland Police have the ability to check-in and request information surrounding your club or association compliance any time.

Following discussions with the Queensland Government and upon review of the updated Covid-Safe Plan - Outdoor Sports, Golf Australia’s recommendation is to use these Covid-19 Local Rules as it the most adequate way to meet the Covid Safe Plans practices around hygiene and sanitisation of shared equipment. Where an event is outside of the scope or not solely covered by the Approved COVID Safe Plans for reasons including but not limited to having larger than 500 people (indoor events) or 1000 people (outdoor events), read the Industry Framework for COVID Safe Events which provides guidance on organising Covid Safe Events.
