December 2020 Level 5 Restrictions

Golf Ireland Announcement on December 24th 2020


Following continued discussions with government authorities and Sport Ireland, Golf Ireland welcomes the fact that golf courses and facilities will be permitted to remain open as the Republic of Ireland moves again to Level 5 on a phased basis from 24 December.


From 26th December, inter-county travel restrictions will be reintroduced and will, as always, apply to sporting activity.


Participants in sport and exercise in unsupervised/uncoached activity must be from no more than two households. 

Therefore, groups playing on golf courses during these Level 5 measures must be confined to a maximum of two households. 

This means that all tee times must be either two-balls, or alternatively three-balls and four-balls where players in the group are from no more than two households. A household for these purposes includes a household support bubble, guidance for which is available here: 

These additional requirements from Sport Ireland come against a backdrop of escalating public health challenges with the incidence of COVID-19 rising exponentially in Ireland.


 We would ask that all of our golfers follow these requirements. Should you need to change your tee time or booking please do not hesitate to contact our Golf Shop team at or  01 832 3487 or our Golf Professional, Alan Staunton on 087 418 0201.
