On Wednesday, golf clubs Entebbe and Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort in Kigo announced they would be officially opening up to their members for activity with guidance from Uganda Golf Union (UGU) who have made consultations with government.
"We presented our SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) for golf and there was no objection from the Ministry of Health (MoH) and Covid-19 Security Committee but we are waiting for a formal response very soon," he added.
It is on the basis of interactions with MoH and the Security Committee on the Covid-19 National Task Force that UGU executive wrote a letter to all clubs in the country on guidance to resume activity on Tuesday.
That golf is good for physical and mental health and naturally a social distancing discipline played by teams not exceeding four players with not less than two meters apart from one another.
Serena Kigo and Entebbe clubs have too issued more SOPs in line with those of UGU and government on social distancing, hand sanitization and wearing of masks.
