Women’s Golf Resumption at Dowerglen Golf Club

by | Oct 1, 2020

Golf could claim to be one of the most naturally socially-distancing compliant sports around, and the Dowerglen Golf Course is relying on that and strict observation of its Risk Mitigation Plan to ensure safe player conditions at the upcoming Ekurhuleni Women’s Golf Open, Closed, Junior, Mid-Amateur and Senior Championship.

The first legitimate action for golfers past the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown restrictions take place from 10-11 October at the Glendower Golf Course in Edenvale, Gauteng, and just three days remain before entries close.

The A-Division for both the Open, Closed and Juniors championship, and the Mid-Amateurs and Seniors championship will both play a total of 54 holes stroke play, spread over two days with 18 holes on Sunday morning, and 36 holes on Monday.

The B- and C-Divisions of both championships will play 18 holes on each day, stroke play for the B Divisions, and 36 holes individual stabelford for the two C-Divisions.

Special pandemic-required stipulations applying to all contestants are set out in the entry form, which states that all players will be entered into the Open Championship, and all players affiliated to Ekurhuleni Golf Union will also be automatically entered into the Closed Championship.

Players born in 2002 or later, will be entered into the Junior Championship. All players 30 years and older will automatically compete in the Mid-Amateur Championship, and all players 50 years and older will automatically compete in the Mid-Amateur & Senior Championship.
