“Last evening we received correspondence from GolfWA with a link to the State Government’s Frequently Asked Questions in relation to what the community can and cannot do in this current Covid-19 Phase. Those FAQ’s clearly indicated that masks did not need to be worn outside whilst a person engaged in exercise as references to “vigorous and strenuous” had been deleted from previous definitions.
These updated FAQ’s have created confusion in many sports and have resulted in discussions with Department of Sport & Recreation. It is now noted that the FAQ’s have been changed again today and the phrase “vigorously or strenuously” has been reintroduced with the relevant clause now stating “Masks are not required when exercising vigorously or strenuously in outdoor locations”.
Thus we need to return to wearing of masks whilst on the golf course. We do apologise for this situation”
