Golf - Supporting Our Clubs
With the common knowledge that the R&A postponed The Open Championship knowing that they would receive millions through their Pandemic-Specific insurance payout - I would love to see some of this cash being paid out to golf clubs up and down the country to support them during lockdown. Whether that’s to help with loss of income thus far, or to help them manage/maintain socially distant golf once it’s allowed. The organisers of Wimbledon have done the same and so the same applies for tennis clubs.
Why the contribution is important
Golf clubs were struggling to make money even before the pandemic and many will surely be facing closure. It’s a sport which is already elitist in many respects, so closing local clubs will be disastrous for accessibility to our national sport.
