Is your track still open?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I feel very blessed (almost guilty) that our course (private club) has remained open and is following all of the recommended guidelines. The restaurant has closed except for food to go with delivery by golf cart for neighborhood homes. In effort to keep money flowing in, the course decided a couple of weeks ago to allow non-members to play but that brought a whole list of issues with people not taking care of the course - like driving right up to the edge of the greens and leaving fast food trash on the course.

We received an email yesterday that our county judge and mayor decided to close all local golf courses effective at end of the day yesterday. 😢 So the course was super crowded late yesterday afternoon with everyone wanting to get in a last round. Then on the local news last night we heard a welcomed report that our specific course will remain open to members only who want to walk or have a private cart. Yippee 😃 we can still play and it will only be people who will take care of our course!

While on our regular early morning walk today it was promising to see a foursome getting ready to play. Don't know where they came up enough push/pull carts to dust off and have doubts that those guys have walked further than from their cars to the pro shop in many years, but thumbs up 👍 to them for trying! We are going have a fit club!

We have been waking only, no rakes, no flags, pool noodles in the cups to the top and no staff at the club. We are private and looks like we are now closed. Looks like all beaches on the south shore are now closed as well.

I did play at my home club yesterday with full CDC recommendations in force. At the first tee the starter informed us that this was the last day the course would be open for an unknown period of time but he was unaware of why the course would be closed.

After the round I saw that I had an email regarding the clubs closure and it just stated that they were getting clarification from the Governors office since he has declared all state parks closed.

Most people think it is for the Easter holiday to prevent folks from gathering together this weekend.

I have checked around and some of the area courses are still open but many have closed for now. Bazaar times we are living in!

Wisconsin courses are still closed.  Our governor was on the radio this morning and had this to say when asked about golf courses:

"I know that’s been a hot topic, which is interesting because we have kind of life-and-death situations going on where we’re making decisions.  I’m not belittling the golf. All things people ask us to reconsider, we reconsider. We’re not at the point now to say that we’re going to open up golf courses. But we will continue to monitor the science on that. When it is time to do that, we will do that."

Doesn't sound like we'll be opening up anytime soon.  There are a few courses working directly with their local sheriff's departments to try and stay open without getting in trouble but it sounds like that is going to be shut down very soon as well.

We did have state parks open but those were shut down earlier this week because people were not following social distancing rules and were vandalizing the parks.  This is why we can't have nice things.

In the club email we received it stated that our county judge and mayor determined that golf courses are nonessential to be in alignment with our Texas governor's determination made during a conference call with county and city leaders. I understand to reopened our course had to negotiate and receive permission from the county judge and mayor. I assume it is the same for all areas of Texas hence the inconsistency.

The question: Are golf courses included in the mandatory closures?

The answer: Golf courses in Harris County are allowed to stay open, but driving ranges must close, according to the county’s website.

I may have to make a trip down there if our courses don't open in early May.  COVID-19 won't be what kills us; my wife and I are practicing our MMA skills on each other.  I will lose.

I haven't canceled the Spy trip at the end of June.  We will need to get out of this house again by that time!!

Here in Michigan the courses are closed for the foreseeable future, the golfers here are not happy because of the way the governor handled it. And at this point it doesn't look good for us... I am hoping for June, but that may be a pipe dream....

The northeast is carpet bombed with Covid 19.

The bluer an area looks on an electoral map, the brighter red it looks on a Covid 19 map.

It has nothing to do with politics, of course; it has to do with density of population.

I'm not kidding, it's body bag city over here.

 

My club is closed, course and club alike, but I have to be honest.

There's no way I'd play under these conditions.

At my age, I'm fine with dying in my sleep, but I'd rather not die on a ventilator.

I remember the big polio epidemic in the early fifties when I was a very young child. 

Seeing a picture of an iron lung, as they used in those days, used to keep me from sleeping at night.

At least I'm still sleeping OK, and I'm still getting outdoors to walk the dog.

So technically my exec where I recently joined the monthly membership closed just a week after joining..

But, it was agreed that paying members would retain full access to the course and the course would be meticulously maintained while closed. It's a community course so local residents with golf carts could use their own and outside members could walk.

Played yesterday and had the whole course in perfect condition to myself. Walked and carried my bag.. made me feel like I was 16 again.. but then was reminded this morning that I'm 41.. these hips don't lie..

All the courses in Thailand were closed down at the end of March, initially until 30th April. The daily count here is getting lower and lower, in our province for the last couple of days there have been no new cases. Hopefully come the end of this month some courses may re-open. (Wishful thinking).

With Texas being one of the first states to loosen restrictions (right or wrong - I don't care for a debate), I think it's safe to say that there won't be anymore closures around me. Any that are currently closed, will probably be opening again soon.

On a related but different note, I get to try a new course on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how it goes as they have removed pins from all greens. It'll be a good experiment to see how many greens I can hit when I go for the middle because there's no flag to aim at. I think I'll also be interested in trying to set myself up with better angles than normal as I will want to see and have access to as much of the green as possible.
