To get the latest information on the COVID-19 safety protocols, please visit the
Golf Ontario or Golf Quebec websites by clicking on the icons below.

Some key strategies to keep in mind for everyone’s safety include:

  • No cart sharing
  • One group per hole
  • Encourage golfers to wear masks when they are within less than 2 meters of each other
  • Consider including a bottle of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, a face mask, and a one-pager of COVID-19 etiquette in each player’s registration kit
  • Have players complete a self-assessment symptoms screening questionnaire and temperature check before they arrive at the golf course
  • Each player should have their own balls, tees, and set of clubs (the course should also sanitize rental clubs between users)


While traditional networking opportunities (such as a pre-golf breakfast or an after-golf cocktail reception/dinner) may not possible during the pandemic, there are many creative ways to facilitate networking, increase fundraising, and make memories in a safe capacity.
