Golf tournaments will be permitted at golf clubs located in areas under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), subject to a maximum of 100 players and ongoing movement restrictions. No prizegivings or gatherings are permitted.
The CMCO commenced today in the following states – Putrajaya, Kedah, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan and Sabah – while Sarawak has been under the CMCO since January 18. Perlis moved into a Recovery Movement Control Order from today.
The Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) released its revised Mandatory Standard Operating Procedures for golf clubs located in CMCO states today. The tournament SOPs are as follows: “Golf competitions may resume provided there is no prize giving and gathering and restricted to a maximum of 100 players. Player’s place of residence shall be in the same district of the competition venue. Any other private competitions held at golf clubs shall require prior sanction from MGA.”
Twin-sharing buggy usage is permitted in CMCO states provided there is a plastic separator attached between the riders. Changing rooms can be opened but at 30% capacity.
Golf tournaments remain prohibited in areas under the Movement Control Order (MCO), namely Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Penang, and single buggy usage is mandatory. Changing rooms must also remain closed. However, the MGA announced today that golf clubs in MCO areas will be able to operate at 100% capacity for tee times, as well as driving ranges.
