Golf courses in Victoria are open.
The number of people you can play with depends on the size of the golf course. The two square metre rule applies.
People playing together should keep at least 1.5 metres distance apart.
You must carry a face mask with you at all times, unless you have a lawful reason not to wear a face mask. It is strongly recommended that you wear a face mask when you cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance from others, unless you are out of breath or puffing (or have a lawful exception).

Hollie Taylor-Goodwin 😁
Well done all winners
Those pants are 🔥 Hollie Taylor-Goodwin
Numbers were down today due to three sides playing pennant, but five players ventured out at Beechworth today.
Peter Smith was the winner with 33 points and Rod Shaw was runner up with 31 points. No Nearest the Pins were recorded.
In the pennant the Scratch side took on Mansfield at Yarrawonga and came away with a 2.5 all draw.
Darren Edwards lost 1 down, Vaughan Saunders won 1 up, Dylan Pool halved his match, Xavier Palamarczuk won 1 up and Willem Love lost two down. A very close match in the end with all matches going to the 18th hole. A great effort considering all players were down at the half way mark.
In the Section one handicap, they travelled to Jubilee to take on Wodonga. The team had a great 4/1 victory. Unfortunately for Col Carmody he went all the way there and didn't get a game as Wodonga had a player not turn up, so he got a walkover. Jacob Howard won 4 and 3, Bill Love won 1 up, Dean Howard lost 1 down and Zane Howard won 1 up. Well done team.
In the section two handicap, the team travelled to Mansfield to play Myrtleford. And despite three matches going into extra holes the team went down 4/1. Warwick Deuis was the only winner winning 3/2, Aaron Haw lost 3/2, and in the matches that went to extra holes Simon Carracher lost on the 19th, Dave Lang lost on the 20th as did Andy Croome who's apponent eagled the 20th hole to win.
As next week is Easter the next game of pennant will be on April 11th.
The penultimate round of Twilight was played on Thursday with 18 players going around the back nine.
The winner with a fantastic score of 29 points (22+7) was Warwick Deuis, Jarryd Pritchard was runner up with 26 (18+8).
Ball winners were Paul O'Loughlin 22 (18+4), Graeme Cordy 22 (16+6) and Dylan Pool 22 (14+8).
Jarryd Pritchard won nearest the pin on the 10th and also the nearest chip on the 14th.
Warwick Deuis claimed the half dozen with his second shot to the 13th.
Col Carmody was the happy recipient on the meat tray in the raffle kindly donated by CC 's Quality Meats.
