What Scotland's Level 4 COVID restrictions means for golfers

Scotland was the first United Kingdom nation to re-introduce stricter measures when Covid cases began to rise again in early autumn and was the last to come out of full lockdown in July.

Under the level's guidelines, all bars, restaurants, non-essential stores and hospitality venues need to halt their operations until December 11.

All leisure and entertainment premises will also shut, but the good news for golfers in that unlike the previous national lockdown, golf courses will be able to remain open.

'And in this situation, it is specifically meant to have an impact in advance of Christmas and the most challenging winter period.

The travel guidance will now be the law, meaning that it is illegal for people living in level 3 or 4 level areas to travel outside them, except for essential purposes, and there is to be no non- essential travel between Scotland and any other parts of the UK.
