Very cool guide, thanks for sharing!

I talked with our GM for a half hour last night.  We would have opened up this weekend, but we are on a 2 week "stay at home" order.  Bar & Restaurant closure extended to 5/4.  We are trying to get clarification if courses will be allowed to open on 4/10 without use of the clubhouse when our stay at home order stops.

Still open here in South Georgia/North Florida.  In fact, I've played every day this week, except for Wednesday.  Heading out in a few for another round today at noon.  Factor in the weather has been in the low 80's for the highs with no rain, and golf is absolutely the best option going right now during the craziness.

Wisconsin and Minnesota are closed, Illinois was open but then reversed decision and closed down again.  I can handle a golf ban until late April since the weather here is still a mixed bag, but if this extends into May or June I may go crazy.

Michigan is closed now, too, following clarification from the governor's office. And 99 percent of the courses are following the order, thankfully.

I played here in Ohio on Thursday. Gov. closed the courses on Friday and they reversed that decision this morning from what I'm told.

Virginia Beach was also called out for crowded beaches a couple weeks ago by the governor.  😉

My wife is one of eight regional directors for SBA/SBDC across Virginia.  The majority of courses are reporting a significant drop in number of rounds played overall but I'm sure that doesn't apply to every course in the state.  My home club is down significantly but the average age of our membership base is mid 50's.  So it's not surprising to see a drop.

At my club here in Northern VA we're open, with reasonably steady play.  Among the precautions, we're now using intervals of 15 minutes instead of the normal 10, so our max capacity is down, and I'm sure the amount of play is down.  Its not difficult to maintain the appropriate distancing while playing.  Where we're having the toughest time adjusting is post-round.  Our restaurant is still open for carry-out and snack bar service, and I would normally hang around for a couple of beers after each round.  All chairs on the back deck are in storage, but its still possible to stay for a bit, standing at appropriate distances.  But on weekends I play in a group of 12 to 16 players, and we have to remind early finishers to head out, so we keep the crowd at 10 people or less.  We HAVE gone to an online system for collecting and paying off bets, to minimize the amount of contact with each other and with money.

My club is a stock owned, member owned 501c3 with no restaurant, lounge or grill.  It's strictly a golf club.  A drop in rounds played won't have the usual impact on us than it might at another club because members are still paying dues.  But it's still a huge impact to lose revenue from the drink cooler, the golf shop and cart rental.

No doubt, and we're seeing the same.  Given the member-owned status, is your club eligible for some of the stimulus money allocated by the government?  I know mine is applying, in a large part so we can continue to pay as many of the employees as possible through the tough times.

We are! My wife helped the GM process the paperwork earlier this week for the very same reasons you mention.

According to the list, I live in a state that can play but my club,

fifteen minutes from my home,

is in a state that can't.

I knew that we were closed, but I didn't know that some "open to the public" courses nearby are open.

No matter.  I'm not playing under these dangerous conditions.  Seniors are high risk.

The course I live on is closed but I've had two doctor's appointments in the last couple of weeks and the course next to them is open so I've gotten to play. Thankfully they know me there because it's closed to anyone not local.

Arizona courses still open but, sadly, many from the LA/San Diego area are defying their stay at home directives and driving over to play.

Our courses are open here, but it is walk only, with 15 minute intervals between groups. Clubhouse is closed, and the restaurant is carry out only.
