Many people are asking, do I have to wear a mask when playing golf? 

The DHHS states: You must wear a face covering when walking for exercise even if the 1.5 metre physical distancing is maintained unless you have a lawful excuse such as a medical condition, where it would be dangerous to have obstructed breathing while walking around. So Yes, you do need to be wearing a mask while you are at Flinders Golf Club.

A face mask is not required in some circumstances including:

  • A person who is affected by a relevant medical condition, including problems with their breathing, a serious condition of the face, a disability or a mental health condition.
  • Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
  • When you are doing any exercise or physical activity where you are out of breath or puffing. 
  • When consuming food, drink or medication, including when seated at a restaurant where permitted.

None of us enjoy them, however for now we all need to wear them.
