Golf back on in Melbourne – but starts with no toilets

Royal Melbourne is one club that has announced golfers will be required to provide proof of vaccination

GOLF was back in metropolitan Melbourne as of Wednesday September 30 but one of the ongoing restrictions announced with the reopening wasn’t so popular – or understandable. Maybe Victorian health authorities have hit on a unique means of speeding up golf rounds – no toilets open on course. Four or so hours can be a long time to “hold on”.  

Of course, there is often a handy nearby tree on most golf courses – but that is not always suitable in every situation, probably especially on ladies day.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was asked about the no toilets decree for golf and tennis clubs at his Thursday morning media conference and responded that the decision was being revised.

“Hopefully there is a positive response to that quite soon,” Andrews said.
