BREAKING NEWS !!
Although the Scottish Government have announced a possible relaxation of the lockdown restrictions for outdoor recreation, with Golf and Fishing specifically mentioned, this will not come into effect until at least the 28th May and even then we will be subject to rules and regulations as to what we can and cannot do !
Bearing in mind that no one has swung a club in earnest for the past 8 weeks and it is unknown as to when competitive golf will be allowed the North East District committee at a virtual committee meeting last night decided to CANCEL ALL NORTH EAST DISTRICT TOURNAMENTS FOR 2020.
This includes Ladies and Gents Champion of Champions and both Boy’s and Men’s Order of Merit competitions.
The competitors in the 2020 Champion of Champions will be automatically entered into the 2021 Champion of Champions along with any 2020 Club Champions, should any Club(s) play a Club Championship this year.
The committee regret having to take this decision but the virus will not disappear by relaxing the current restrictions and we may have limitations for a number of weeks yet and coupled with the uncertainty of true competitive golf and when Clubhouses can re-open we felt we had no option but to cancel everything for the season.
