Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, we’ve been working alongside The PGA, GCMA and other governing bodies in golf to provide advice and guidance to golf facilities and our members.

Our staff is on hand to help you find answers for your questions. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter and the BIGGA App, where we'll be sharing the latest updates for the industry.

We know the coming weeks will be uncertain and we want to give you all the help and support that we can. We'll be exploring ways to offer events and information remotely, We’ve also listed some resources on how to keep your team safe and well during these difficult times. 

It's important at this time to remember that the health and wellbeing of yourself and your families must come first. But if you need us, BIGGA staff are able to offer all the same support and benefits that you have come to expect from the association. If you've got any concerns, just get in touch.

Proof of Sickness. As at 25th March 2020 If you have COVID-19 or are advised to stay at home, you can get an ‘isolation note’ by visiting NHS 111 online, rather than visiting a doctor. For COVID-19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a ‘fit note’ (sometimes called a ‘sick note’) after 7 days of sickness absence.
