Windhoek Lager International Pairs Events are Live Once Again!

13 July 2020

Statement From GOLF RSA

To All Unions and Clubs,

Following the publication and distribution of the SA Government Advanced Level 3 Lockdown Regulations and the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture’s Directions published on 6 July 2020

GolfRSA has updated and circulated its Risk Mitigation Guidelines and supporting guidelines.

In terms of the GolfRSA Good Practice Guidelines (v12. Dated 6 July 2020),“Amateur competitions may be played, provided players do not have to travel across provincial borders, there are no spectators or prize- giving and all other Risk Mitigation requirements are in place”.
Accordingly, in terms of competitive golf the following applies with immediate effect.

Permitted Competitive Golf:

1.Competitions and events played under the auspices of the host facility:
•Club Competitions:* open to members and visitors at the discretion of the host facility.* where club competitions are used as qualifying events for Regional and National Finals –clubs must be cognizant of the fact that restrictions on cross-provincial travel may result in the cancellation of such Finals.


As you all know golfers are eager to start playing competitions again. Based on the above you can now continue officially with your Windhoek Lager International Pairs qualifying events.


The lockdown has unfortunately caused the Windhoek Lager International Pairs qualifying events scheduled for your club scheduled between March and June, to be cancelled.

Fortunately, we have some excellent news as we have extended the season (Season 5) to the end of December 2020. This gives you the opportunity to select new dates for your qualifying events.

We have also decided in line with the golfers enthusiasm to play competition golf, not to limit the number of qualifying events a club can host for Season 5.


All you need to do is to email us the new dates for qualifying events between now and 31 December 2020 and we will amend it on our dairy.

As soon as we have received the new dates from you we will contact you to make sure you get all you need to host the event/s.

As always should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
