Re: The Golf Thread

Going to in 60s on Friday up here
Hoping Harmony’s range is open.  It is an unattended range so you don’t have to interact socially with anyone to use it and I have some tokens left over from last yr

Re: The Golf Thread

FWIW Given the possibility of a 18-24 seclusion there is a distinct possibility golf may be shut down especially public courses .

Re: The Golf Thread

When you say public I think you mean municipal owned vs public and private CCs

Golf is different than skiing as the density is extremely low and no need to reach touch anything particularly If you walk which would be good for everyone anyways.  

Also if you golf care for the golf course once the grass starts growing it loses value.  It will probably be a much more local decision than skiing has been.

Got this today:
Regretfully, we are closing all Denver Municipal Golf facilities effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020.  We are closing to reallocate resources to more essential city operations and to promote the safety and well-being of our visitors and employees. The Denver Golf facilities will be closed until further notice. We will continue to evaluate the ever changing situation and will reopen when it is feasible.  

My brother is especially bumming because he got an excellent deal -- $235 for 20 nine-hole rounds (walking) -- and worries that the courses will stay closed for most of the summer.

Re: The Golf Thread

1st local course is opening down low by Lake Champlain
They came up with the idea of a raised cup so nobody needs to touch the flag stick or cup.  Ball touches cup and is considered holed
No club house or pro shop access so you pay outside
Walking only and golf is perfect for social distancing



The munis might have the political correctness issue but the vast majority of courses up here are privately owned businesses.  Walking will be the key to keep distance and limit need to disinfect

From NYSGA

COVID-19: IMPACT ON GOLF IN NEW YORK STATE

The NYSGA has been closely monitoring all information and updates regarding COVID-19 and the impact the situation has on the golf industry.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the New York State on PAUSE Executive Order, which went into effect 8pm on Sunday, March 22. "All non-essential businesses statewide will be closed, non-essential gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason are canceled or postponed at this time, and any concentration of individuals outside their home must be limited to workers providing essential services and social distancing should be practiced."

Clarification was provided by the Governor's office and regional Empire State Development directors on how this Executive Order pertains to golf.

New York golf courses are allowed to remain open but must implement all CDC and state mandated guidelines, and promote safe, social distancing. There is to be no access to pro shops, locker rooms, indoor facilities and restaurants/bars (unless for take-out purposes only).

Social distancing on the golf course should include:

Stay at least 6 feet away from others
Don't shake hands before or after your game
Leave the flagstick in the hole
Don't use rakes, ball washers and coolers from course
Don't share clubs or any other equipment
If using a golf cart, limit to one person
Due to the unique COVID-19 precautions taking place at golf courses, the USGA has provided guidance on how to use the flexibility provided in the Roles of Golf while protecting public health. They also provided temporary guidance on posting scores to GHIN (begins in upstate New York on April 15), specifically when golfers don't "hole out" for health/safety reasons.

Yeah? So?

I don't get why I can walk around my neighborhood or walk around a local park, but I can't walk around in an open field occasionally hitting a little white ball.

Also, I'd be supporting a local business and I heard I was supposed to be doing that?
