Golf courses in areas under the general community quarantine are set to reopen, according to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año on Friday.

Interviewed on Dobol B sa News TV, Año said the Inter-agency Task Force is finalizing the guidelines for the resumption of the operation of golf courses in GCQ areas.

"Ito naman ay ipo-formalize sa IATF pero unang-una may mga announcement na tayo na ginawa noon na under GCQ ay puwede na mag-operate ang mga golf courses. Kailangan lang 'yung ating minimum health standards at talagang ang pinakamahirap diyan 'yung paggamit ng locker," Año said.

"'Yung paggamit ng locker ay dapat ipagbawal muna sapagkat diyan nagkakasama 'yung mga players, dapat may panuntunan ang golf courses diyan," he added.

Año further disclosed that the national government would also allow senior golfers provided that they do not pose any health risk.

He said senior golfers must fill-up a waiver specifying their health condition and that they know the risks.

Año said golfers must also proceed directly to the golf area if they intend to play.

"Papayagan natin 'yung senior golfers. Wala naman sigurong maysakit na maggo-golf at 'yung masama ang pakiramdam," he said.
