Und er rules introduced to combat a new variant of coronavirus that "in any part of Wales to find " the sport has been suspended.

In the open letter, external-link Wales Golf CEO Richard Dixon wrote, "I recognize that in this incredibly difficult time, you are faced with many challenging decisions stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic.

"However, I am writing to request that you reconsider golf course closures under the level four restrictions that took effect in Wales on December 20.

] "Wales Golf worked closely with the rest of the industry and the Welsh government last summer to establish a set of protocols that would allow the safe resumption of the sport.

"We were delighted that as a result of this work, golf was one of the first sports in Wales to resume after restrictions were relaxed.

"Golf clubs throughout Wales are fully compliant. Placed on them to enable players in Wales to practice their sport in a safe environment."
