Was that not more down a medical experts suggesting that pubs/restaurants shouldn’t be open until May as opposed to restrictions not easing until then

The government won’t be able to afford to keep people locked down until May - thats 4 months lockdown , that’s just not going to happen even more so when vaccines are happening
No. I was reading on the BBC news, article about why the vaccine won't result in coming out of lock down any time soon. It was about the pressure on the NHS, and nothing to do with pubs.

I’ve played 4 days in a row , the greens were frosty and scoring was low but feel lucky we can go out and play just now.

I know how hard mentally it was the first full lockdown so hope the situation improves and the rest of you can get out to play.

Guessing that, if they are not putting forward any plans to end lockdown until 22nd February, there is not going to be any golf until March at the earliest.

Next review in Wales it this Friday (29th). Not really expecting any relaxation re golf. They do them 3 weekly over here, so best hope is for some change in 6 weeks, but it'll depend on the figures. Wales has also been the slowest part of the UK to roll out vaccination so that won't help.

February is usually the month where I golf trips start...Algarve (no chance) and Porthcawl (minimal chance) ...but when you see the state of the hospital wards, it puts it into perspective. Although the number of folk driving to walk on the course with their dogs (without penalty) doesnt do much for morale.

Hopefully in about 2 weeks if restrictions are relaxed in Wales. It may well have to be at another course though as it seems the wet weather has taken its toll on ours and wellies would be needed to play it.

Blimey, how many people play there? And how good a condition is it compared to 2016?
It’s difficult to tell how many people actually are members there, it’s not in as good condition as it was in the olympics. They only really get it in top condition for tournaments, the main courses that people play in Rio are the private clubs Gávea and Itanhanga. Golf isn’t widely played in Rio at all, it’s too expensive for most people. You will find the locals playing sports on the beach or soccer on the astro turf pitches by the beach.
