Pitch and Putt Ireland welcomes the Government decision to allow our courses and facilities remain open under the latest Level 5 restrictions effective from Dec 24th Please ensure our strict Level 5 protocols are in place.

Sport Ireland have issued a further update to the current Level 5 measures, which will remain in place until 12th January 2021. This will require clubs to take note of the following additional points.

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

Therefore, groups playing pitch and putt must be confined to a maximum of two households.

Pitch and Putt Ireland therefore recommend that play be restricted to two balls, we encourage all clubs to implement this change and in doing so continue to ensure the high level of compliance that has made it possible for our sport to remain open during the current level 5 restrictions.
