Updated Provincial Health Order includes specific wording with respect to outdoor sporting activities including the following under Order 13:
- 13(1) Subject to subsection (2), outdoor sporting and recreational facilities, including golf courses, may open, subject to the requirements of this section.
- 13(3) Persons may engage in any type of outdoor sporting or recreational activity but they must not engage in an activity with a person who does not live at their private residence.
• outdoor gatherings with anyone from outside a household are no longer allowed and this applies to all recreation spaces including playgrounds, golf courses, parks and sports fields.
• only one person per household will be allowed to enter a business, with some exceptions, such as a single parent with children, or someone who requires a caregiver.
The new changes to public health orders will be in place until 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26.
As golf courses in Manitoba remain open, the Manitoba Allied Golf Associations (Canadian Society of Club Managers, Golf Manitoba, Manitoba Golf Superintendents Association, National Golf Course Owners Association Canada and PGA of Manitoba), continue to encourage all member clubs to remain vigilant to ensure that all public health measures are met or exceeded at all of our golf courses.
A reminder, physical distancing (2 meters / 6 feet) is mandatory with people from outside your household.
