COVID-19 UPDATED MARCH 30TH, 2020
Dear Valued Members and Guests,
Riverside Oaks Golf Resort is now closed until further notice.
Last night the Prime Minister announced further restrictions in relation to social gatherings and self-isolation of the elderly in an effort to reduce the spread of slow the spread of COVID-19.
Following advice from the NSW State Government and the NSW Office of Sport, it is Golf NSW’s recommendation that all golf courses in NSW close at midnight on March 30, 2020, until further notice.
We all understand the health benefits, both mental and physical our game provides, however the Government has listed the four reasons in which you may leave your home; for work, exercise, food, and for medical reasons.
Sadly, under the current restrictions, sport is considered non-essential and therefore not exempt. Action by authorities, including fines, could be imposed on people not adhering to these regulations – Golf NSW
Clubs are advised that golf course maintenance may continue as long as staff adhere strictly to social distancing requirements.
Further information will be communicated to clubs as it comes to hand.
The NSW stance is consistent with similar decisions being made in other States and Territories, with regular communications also being provided by Golf Australia.
Further information about COVID-19 can be found on the NSW health website: www.health.nsw.gov.au
For further information from the Federal Government on COVID-19, the Coronavirus Health Information Line operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 1800 020 080.
