Disc Golf During the Lockdown

The government has announced that from Monday June 1st, people in England and Northern Ireland* can go outside more than once a day for exercise as long as they’re following social distancing guidelines, alone, with members of their household, or with up to five other people from outside of their household.

We interpret this as meaning that, in England and Northern Ireland*, disc golf can be played, either solo, with members of your household or with up to five other people, provided that social distancing (2m) is still applied. We recommend you only handle your own discs and minimise contact with baskets and other course furniture. Hand sanitiser could sensibly be used following such contact.

Please follow the government’s guidelines sensibly and responsibly. Be aware that public parks may be busier than usual, so take time to ensure your throwing area is clear – it should go without saying, but if you are playing solo, do not take any blind shots into areas you can’t see. Before you travel it would be worth checking that the park/facility is open, including any car parking area.

For disc golf course owners/managers, any facilities associated with outdoor sports and physical activities were permitted to reopen from Wednesday 13 May, if those responsible for them feel ready to do so and if they can do so safely, and in line with this and related public health guidance.

*guidance for Scotland states that people may undertake “exercise and other outdoor activity alone or with members of 1 other household at a time“;

in Wales: “You must exercise alone, with members of your household or with members of one other household. Exercising in groups with friends is still not allowed.”
