Premier Ford and the Ontario government announced, on April 17, further restrictions to multiple industries across the province as they deal with the COVID-19 pandemic effective at 12:01am on Saturday, April 17th.
Included in this announcement is the unfortunate news that outdoor golf courses and driving ranges must be closed as of 12:01 am on Saturday, April 17th. This is in conjunction with the stay-at-home order that has been extended by a further 2 weeks to May 20.
As well, the CJGA has been asked to limit events in the Province of British Columbia. To be fair to all contestants, the CJGA has agreed to honour their requests. Therefore, we are postponing all events in the Province to partner with the fight against the fight against the Covid-19 Variance.
The CJGA is disappointed that our governments have made these decisions but it is clear that they made a broad decision with health and safety as the number 1 priority to eliminate any non-essential activities, including removing access to outdoor recreational amenities. Your CJGA team is committed to continue to communicate with Golf Canada and our Provincial Associations along with our governments to keep all informed We believe that golf is an important outlet for all.
In order to follow all Protocols, the CJGA is Postponing all events in British Columbia and Ontario until Mid-May. These events have been and are being re-scheduled to another date. All participants will be notified of the changes. We will keep you in the loop as we work through this process moving forward. In the meantime, Take Care and Be Safe.
On another note though, when everything is opened up again, we anticipate that the demand to enter tournaments will be unprecedented.
