Cape Town – The
European Tour has a new mobile phone policy that will be in effect at this
year’s Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player at Sun City from November
Under the new policy, golf fans
will be allowed to use their mobile phones as much as they like during a
tournament and engage with the event on social media, as long as their phones
remain on silent.
Fans will also be allowed to take
photographs throughout the week anywhere on the golf course but must have the
camera flash switched off.
The taking of video will be
restricted to non-competition areas at a tournament such as the driving
range and there will be designated mobile phone areas where the public
can make and receive phone calls during a tournament.
new policy came into effect during August’s Made in Denmark tournament, and this VIDEO explains how fans may use their mobile phones at tournaments.
