Tee time comes early as golf club reopens doors post-Covid lockdown


A group of golfers greeted the easing of England’s coronavirus restrictions by hitting the fairways at just after midnight. Seven teams used glow-in-the-dark balls and floodlit greens at the Morley Hayes Golf Club, near Derby, with their opening drives coming at 12.01am. Golf is among the outdoor activities which can now take place in England, with courses allowed to reopen along with football and cricket pitches, tennis and basketball courts, and outdoor swimming pools.
