The UK’s chief scientific adviser has responded to a health select committee question about playing golf during the coronavirus crisis by effectively saying it is an activity that is allowable.
Sir Patrick Vallance said: “It is OK – if you keep a distance.”
The question was put forward by Dean Russell MP. He asked: “Exercise is going to be key [especially for older people]. If someone wants to play golf, can they still do that if they’re not close together?”
Sir Patrick Vallance stated: “We’re not asking everyone to be completely isolated. The specific advice is to avoid close contact. A walk is OK if you keep a distance.”
We are a thriving and traditional members club situated just three miles from Torquay’s centre with its stunning marina and harbour, and a short distance from picturesque St. Marychurch and Babbacombe.
Founded in 1909, the course has steadily evolved to present a first class parkland layout that offers a challenging yet rewarding test of golf in beautiful natural surroundings. Extensive views from the course encompass Lyme Bay in the east across the water to as far afield as Portland Bill, and to the rugged tors of Dartmoor to the west. Our tree lined fairways and high quality greens present an interesting challenge on each hole. We offer a warm welcome to visitors and societies looking to test your skills; Torquay golf course provides a true test of golf for players of all abilities. Visitor green fees are available throughout the week and weekend.
To match the course, our comfortable and friendly clubhouse offers excellent catering and bar facilities where you can have a relaxing meal and a drink on the terrace overlooking the 1st and 18th fairways. We hope you enjoy your visit!
