Golf courses are allowed to operate in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) and can now accept senior players, according to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año in a live radio interview Friday.
Año went on air to clarify the issues surrounding golf operations and whether senior golfers will be allowed to play.
Interviewed by Arnold Clavio on Super Radyo DZBB, Año said it has been announced that golf is allowed under GCQ.
He admitted that there was a mistake in the omnibus resolution issued by the national task force on modified GCQ and they intend to correct it.
With regards to senior golfers, the IATF has agreed to allow players 60 years old and above on two conditions: First is point to point trip, meaning the player will come from his home or office to the course and vice versa, and second is that player must execute a waiver or undertaking that he is aware of the risks involved.
Año said the courses can now accept senior golfers and will discuss possible exemptions that can be given to those traveling from areas under modified enhanced community quarantine to GCQ areas.
