• In tier 3, you are permitted to travel around 5 miles for exercise.
• In tier 2 & tier 1, you are permitted to travel freely for exercise within your own Local Authority area.
• U18s – can travel freely for exercise in Tiers 0-3. They should not travel in or out of a Tier 4 area.
All golfers should be aware of travel guidance outlined by the Scottish Government and this should always be followed.
