Finally the first signs the world was returning to some sort of normality, when Europe also joined other global destinations in announcing that its golf courses would re-open in June. Many of the golf clubs Privatus work with had initial soft openings in May, strictly for their members only with no guests allowed. By June 1st, Privatus started to re-introduce our members back onto the golf courses, with the Scandinavian Club being one of the very first to re-open all of its facilities. After almost 3 months of global lock down and the Privatus membership suspended, the clubs board made an executive decision to contribute in helping the UK’s front line healthcare workers by donating a proportion of all membership subscriptions and new member applications, renewed between July 1st and the season ending World Golf Championships in Dubai this November, to the UK’s NHS Charities. Privatus Club CEO, Chris Game, said…”from speaking with our members throughout this global crisis, it was evidently clear from their personal stories just how incredible health care workers all over the world have been. Due to our international HQ being in London and the company based mainly in the UK, we chose this particular health care organisation to support. We will also, temporarily, be opening up our Founder memberships again for a limited time only to current member referrals only, in order to help support the golf clubs we work with but mainly our ‘Beyond 19’ lifestyle partners, who will have remained closed for business far longer, with the hospitality/travel industry affected more so than any other”.
