Publically Owned Golf Courses and Tennis Courts May Re-Open

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 24 Apr 2020
Advice has been received from the Office of Local Government that paves the way for the re-opening of Council owned Golf Courses and Tennis Courts.

In response to clarification of the current Public Health Orders sought by Councils on the status of council operated and owned outdoor recreational facilities, including tennis courts and golf courses, the Office of Local Government issued advice on Tuesday evening that such facilities may be re-opened subject to social distancing rules.

While premises used for the purpose of indoor recreational facilities must close, outdoor recreational facilities, unless specifically prohibited within the Order, can remain open, provided persons using the facility adhere to the orders around social distancing and public gatherings.

Outdoor facilities that are still prohibited in the Public Health Order and must remain closed include public swimming pools, outdoor playground or gym equipment and skate parks.

Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson said today “Council is thrilled that if can now quickly work with Lithgow Golf Club and Lithgow City Tennis Club so these facilities may lawfully and safely reopen and we would like to thank the Office of Local Government for their timely advice so this can occur.  The physical and mental wellbeing of our community is being tested during this difficult time and access to outdoor recreation is vital in getting us all through.”
