Weekly competitions have resumed at the Albany Golf Club, the first small step towards sport across the country returning to normality.

The lush AGC fairways were re-opened for competition last week after some relaxation in COVID-19 gathering restrictions.

All competition golf was suspended, in line with sport across Australia, amid the coronavirus with golfers only allowed to play with one other person for several weeks.

Last Wednesday’s men’s competition marked the start of competitive golf again.

A ladies competition on Thursdays and mixed competition on Saturday and Sunday have also restarted.

AGC general manager Dan Northcott said competitions were back, under guidelines.

“All players are abiding by the rules,” he said.

“Competitions are back with limited numbers and groups allowed to play but we are mostly back to our normal schedule.

“All players have to start from tee 1, to spread the players out.

“We used to tee off from 1 and 10 and play at the same time but now we are spreading it out.”
