Golf and Covid 19 (Corona Virus)

Since our last golf article the world has change significantly and we hope that all our readers are safe and healthy.

On the 13th March 2020 Spain entered a full lockdown as residents were instructed to stay in their homes to restrict and prevent the rapid spread of this killer virus.

In accordance with these instructions, other than for essentials shops, businesses and open spaces such as gardens were instantly closed and this instruction included ALL local golf courses.

Just a few days ago this period of self isolation was extended to at least the 11th April 2020 by the Spanish authorities and will then be reviewed again depending on any continued spread of the virus.

All of our golf courses are allowed to maintain a skeleton staff to maintain the courses and more particularly the greens so ensure that they remain in a good condition for when they do re-open to the public.

As we all know in late May and early June each year the courses hollow tine their greens and some courses (Bonalba,Font De Llop and Vistabella) have conducted this work during this enforced closure to prevent further disruptions after the courses re-open which makes sense and perhaps a number of other courses will follow suit.

The regions was once again hit by torrential rain the last week and again the Mar Menor region was badly affected but as yet we have no reports from the courses regarding any damage that may have  been done but will keep you updated accordingly.

Until then all stay safe and healthy in the coming weeks and months.
