The South African Disabled Golf Association has a simple message for its members: Stay sharp.
Golfers in South Africa returned to the fairways some ten days ago following the national lockdown. That said, Golf RSA and the Sports Ministry are exercising the utmost caution in order to mitigate the potential spread of Covid-19. As such, competitive golf hasn’t been given the green light just yet.
SADGA Operations Manager Lily Reich outlined the implications of the present situation on the association’s National Rankings.
“We find ourselves in quite a strange situation at present. While social golf is permitted, competitive golf is still suspended and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We have therefore taken the decision to suspend the National Ranking system until at least October,” Reich said.
“When we are given the all-clear to resume competitive golf, we’ll assess how best to conduct Provincial Days and other SADGA events. In the meantime, I encourage you all to play and practice as much as possible and sharpen your skills,” concluded Reich.
So get out there, put in some time on the practice range and look forward to the return of SADGA competition.
