PRESS RELEASE - UK GOLF FEDERATION - 18.03.2020 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

However, we cannot do this alone, we need your help! This will need to be a nationwide effort from all golf associations, businesses, press, courses and golfers.

Just short of 2 million people play golf each week, many are under 70 years old! The loss of their recreational activity, social discussions and time spent with friends and partners walking in fresh air will be lost and could have serious unnecessary long-term effects on the health, physical and mental wellbeing of these golfers.

Together, we have the ability to create a viral petition that can reach these 2 million golfers through every channel possible and get our message across to the government to #KeepGolfOpen. Sign and share the petition here: https://www.change.org/keepgolfopen Twitter and Short Copy: It is more critical than ever that we rise as a collective and face the challenges ahead within our golfing industry.

Sign and share the petition here: https://www.change.org/keepgolfopen Email Copy Feel free to use this as a guide or template to send emails out to your members to grow awareness. *** START *** Subject: #KeepGolfOpen Main copy: Attention all golfers... In spite of the uncertainty and fear around the unprecedented COVID-19, a petition has been initiated in order to #KeepGolfOpen and to raise awareness to our government that now is not the time to close our courses in the United Kingdom.

We believe golf is one of the safest places in our current environment as it requires no person to person contact. You have the ability to change in the car park, there is no reason to take the flag out these days and likely you can always remain two metres apart from your playing partners. We hope this petition will be the catalyst in helping members, golfers, golf club employees, managers, and all those in our industry share our message to the government and the country to #KeepGolfOpen and emerge stronger.

We cannot do this alone, which is why we need your help! A nationwide effort is required for all golfers to share this petition with everyone who loves this great game. We are at such a critical and pivotal time and we need your support and care more than ever. We want to update you with our plans and how we aim to not only survive but thrive in this situation, and also provide some value to ensure your safety.
