Kerry’s golf courses re-open Monday but the return of the Cups and Shields competitions remain some way off. Ger Walsh spoke to some local golf course officers and staff
Golfers adhering to the Covid-19 protocol guidelines at Castlegregory Golf Club last year. Similar regulations will be in play when golf courses re-open next week.
Golf makes its long-awaited return to the fairways on Monday next, a date that Irish golfers have been anticipating for weeks now, rather like a child waiting for Christmas morning.
Courses in this country have been closed since late December of 2020 and coupled with similar Level 5 closures in March and October of last year, it will mean that on Monday next, Irish courses will have been closed for play to their members for a total of 30 weeks since the pandemic began almost 14 months ago.
