As of 11.59 pm on Wednesday 25 March, New Zealand will be at COVID-19 Alert Level 4.
This means New Zealanders not working in essential services must stay at home and stop all interactions with others outside of your household.
The move to Alert Level 4 means that all operations at golf clubs will close for at least four weeks.
This means all golf courses, practice facilities, clubhouses, pro shops, bar, function and catering facilities will be closed.
While this a major move for the country, the government is trying to save lives and we urge the golf sector to do all we can to play our part.
