Is your track still open?

My Tuesday game has been postponed at the City of Tampa owned Babe Zaharias GC as we are all retirees and it is open for walkers only. I don’t think 5 players out of the 50 in our game have push/pull carts and could walk 18 holes.

6 of the 7 courses in the area are open.  We're seeing people from CA make the drive to play.  Now that is dedication.  The one that is closed is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Friday; I hope so as it's my favorite.

Well, I have to report back after playing yesterday that I am very disappointed in my local muni. Of all the things they said they were doing, they are actually only doing about half. Add to the fact, people just not taking the social distancing seriously and I won't be going back until after this is over. May attempt to play a different course, but not sure. 

I had originally started to type a long list of reasons explaining why, but to save everyone time I'll just provide one quick example of my experience yesterday.

I literally had someone approach me and try to shake my hand with everything that's going on - only for him to later tell me that one of his kids works at the local hospital and share what he's seen with incoming COVID-19 cases... ???

Be safe out there everyone.

Interesting times. Looks like I'll just be chipping in the backyard and putting in the basement until mid-April at the earliest. The governor's office put out some clarification specifically for golf courses today:

Quote

 

Q: Are golf course employees considered critical infrastructure workers for the purposes of Executive Order 2020-21?

A: No, golf course employees are not considered critical infrastructure workers. As needed, however, golf courses may designate workers to leave their home for work if their in-person presence is strictly necessary to conduct the minimum basic operations listed in section 4(b) of the order. Minimum basic operations do not include serving members of the public.

 

One course I know of is working around this with an honor system cash box, but many others are adhering strictly to the order. I really wish there was a way for them to be open, but there are a lot of touch points involved in playing golf (even by yourself) if some means of remote payment is not feasible. 

My interpretation of that order is also that there can be no starter/enforcer of tee times/pace-of-play, so on some of these courses that would lead to massive backups/congestion, which defeats the whole purpose of social distancing.

Of course, this is the first spring since I moved back to Michigan in 2017 that the March weather has been very conducive to golf. So like myself, many others are itching to play. Delayed gratification, I suppose. And my short game should be better right out of the gate this year.

Played yesterday and today in pretty crummy weather, but was grateful that the course for the opportunity to take advantage of it.

Played a different course yesterday. It was much colder than it has been lately and there was rain in the forecast so me and my two buddies ended up being the only golfers on the course. Had a pretty decent round going after the first couple holes then started rushing around once the rain started to move in. Anyway, we had fun, we used social distancing and each had our own cart. The only negative thing I have to report is that the course was still putting sand bottles and such on the carts - I'm guessing they must be wiping those down too, but who knows. I didn't use them just to be safe.

Played yesterday and pulled the pin after 9. It was like the Bataan death march with quite a few people out, including those that play 2 rounds a year.

County executive just closed all courses in Onondaga County except for the one state park course for the next 3 weeks. I live in Oswego County, but we don't have much in the way of courses open yet, still wet and in low areas.

Most of the courses in the Houston area are back open with CDC guidelines in effect. No sand jugs, rakes, and leave pin in hole and blockades to keep ball from falling into cup. Pay online or credit card only at club. Restaurants closed with to go orders filled at window or under tent. One player per cart, bring your own pencil and clean all trash from cart when you leave. Tee times are extended between groups. But we get to play golf!!!!!!!!

Mine remains open but it’s getting close to shutting it down. Current measures in effect.

1. Removed all tee markers to encourage golfers to tee off from differing locations.

2. Flags are not allowed to be touched and or removed.

3. Foam placed in all holes so the ball simply rolls over rather than going in.

4. No more than two golfers per group. They must walk or take separate carts.

5. Can not tee off until the hole is completely cleared in front of you.

6. No cash exchange in the pro shop.

7. No more than two golfers in the pro shop at one time.

8. No loitering in the parking lot after the round. You must depart immediately.

Yes, but no carts and prepay before arrival. Another course nearby and with same rules also has put a section of pool noodle in the cup to keep the ball near the putting surface.

Heading out this morning to play and I will be walking while the other seven old farts are riding.  I'm glad I still have some good wheels under my ole arse and can shuffle around the course pretty good. I walk four to five miles around my neighborhood daily since my gym has closed and that makes walking the golf course much easier. 

I'm renewing our membership for another year so it looks like I'll be more active with golf for the foreseeable future.

Looks like I'll be giving my local course another shot after all. Got an email yesterday saying that they'd only allow walking on the course which should hopefully remedy most (if not all) of my concerns from the last visit. Got a tee time at 12:20 and the weather outside is about as good as you could possibly want. Let's go! 💪

Looks like everything in NY is now closed down until further notice. I can fish or walk in a state park but can’t walk and carry my bag at my club. Just dumb if you ask me.

Here in Nueces County , Texas  as of today all courses closed by order of county judge until further notice. Deemed a non essential business. Played on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week under CDC guidelines with no problems. Methinks someone complained we golfers were having too much fun or she is trying to make a name for herself. Not a popular edict with the golfing community down here.
