Moree Golf Course will remain open, despite the club being forced to close in after new directions were handed out by the federal government.

All scheduled golf competitions will continue and the course will be open to anyone who wants to play social golf.

However, there are still concerns for the club if the closure is forced to last a long time.

"This is a major concern to our operations and extremely devastating for our staff members that have lost their jobs through no fault of their own or the clubs," Moree Golf Club general manager Scot McLeod said.

"Fortunately the club is in a strong financial position and our treasurer believes we will be able to survive this crisis as long as it doesn't go on for more than six months."

The club will also sell take-away alcohol and soft drinks to drink on the course or to take home, with the bar to be open via the back steps from 10am to 5pm daily, however all other areas of the club will remain closed.

The club is asking all players to refrain from opening drinks until they have begun their round and following the completion of their course to leave the venue as soon as practical, with large fines a possibility for any gathering of people that could threaten a complete closure.

Any competition players can register with the Pro Shop as per usual and return their cards to the Pro Shop at the end of their round to be entered, with results to be placed on a notice board.
