The Strategic Framework Scheme
The new Fund consists of two grants which are available to affected golf clubs:
Temporary Closure Grant - £2,000 or £3,000 (depending on rateable value) if your business is required to close by law.
Business Restrictions Grant - £1,400 or £2,100 (depending on rateable value) if your business can remain open but is specifically required to modify its operations by law, for example having to close earlier than normal or demand for your products or services has been reduced because of the pandemic.
On 31st of October 2020 Economy Secretary, Fiona Hyslop, released this statement confirming that sports clubs would be eligible for ‘hardship and closure grants’ that will be replaced by the Strategic Framework Business Fund and we would encourage any golf club facing restrictions to apply.
