Is your course open or closed?

My course is open but unfortunately the Army kicked us retired folks off post for fear we will spread the virus. Ironically the day after I was told we could no longer access the golf course I received a request from the Army asking me to come out of retirement to help with the healthcare mission. Duty calls even for us old broken Soldiers.

The provincial government in Alberta has closed all non essential services as of Friday. The pro shops were open for membership and merchandise sales up until then. We have snow still so we were 4-6 weeks away most likely from golf. Hopefully this lock down will help “flatten the curve” and get life back to some sort of normalcy.

 Here in Tasmania our courses are all still open to the best of my knowledge. My home course, Seabrook G C, is open with a limit of 2 players per group. You fill in and sign your own card, announcing your score to your playing partner after each hole. Competition payment is card only, no cash. We only have a few carts but as most places a limit of 1 person per cart. Holes still at normal depth but pins removed and holes close to the centre of all greens. 

Happy and safe play to all.

It's a 1906 Donald Ross course. 

In the early 2000s , it closed for two seasons to mitigate drainage issues and for complete historical restoration.

Let's hope it's not as long this time.

I can't play anymore, but I still enjoy the club...you know, lunch or drinks with the guys, playing cards, dinner with my wife and friends, stuff like that.

I got an e mail this morning that said my course was reopened and will be doing business starting today. I didn't know they were closed. They were open 5 days ago. I hope they stay open, but I won't hold my breath.

I just posted this email on the Northeast Ohio thread - guess there was some confusion by the State along with the Golf Courses. 

From:        The Toledo District Golf Association

Date:         March 30, 2020

To:             Members of the TDGA Golfing Community

Subject:    COVID-19 Update 

Good Morning from the TDGA,

It's been a turbulent week for the golf industry not only in Ohio, but all over the world. As you probably know, on March 28, 2020 the Ohio Health Department mandated that all golf courses close. This message came to us just a day after Dr. Amy Akton indicated that it was OK to play golf. Then on March 29. 2020, the Health Department reversed itself and now says courses may open.

If you play, please follow social distancing practices as outlined in the Ohio Stay at Home order. Please do not gather around picnic tables or in the parking lot for post round get togethers. Please do your part to contain the spread of this very deadly disease.

Just heard our course is opening shortly. There are several provisions:

No tee box markers, ball washers or pins. Booking only via online system or phone call. No Club carts available, however, members may use their private carts 1 to a cart except for immediate family members where 2 per cart would be allowed. After being self-isolated for 2 weeks, I'll be a very happy camper when it opens - there's just so much chipping in the backyard that you can do. .

My course is still open (near Atlanta, GA), but everything inside the clubhouse has shut down. You can still order take out food, but locker room, bag storage, etc. is understandably closed. Like most, the course is walking only or 1 person per cart. As of a few days ago, that even includes people that live in the same house as you. I was going to go play nine holes with my sons the other day, and we were told that we couldn't ride in a cart together. While that didn't make a lot of since to me, I am very thankful that our course is staying open. My boys are too young to walk nine holes, but we have a short course that we were still able to play on.

We are closed, but that is not unusual for this time of year here. We were going to open, but the state has ordered all courses to stay closed.

In Virginia the Governor just announced a stay-at-home order extending into June (unless rescinded).  However, I've read the order, and we are still allowed to leave the house for "exercise", and businesses that were allowed to remain open previously are still allowed to remain open, subject to some restrictions.  Well, the course was allowed to be open after the previous Executive Order, and golf remains exercise, so I'm hopeful that we'll be able to continue playing.  I'll try to update this once I get confirmation from the club.

The counties in Ohio can override that. There are counties in northeast and southwest Ohio that have deemed courses non essential and closed them until further notice.

Yeah, have been getting emails today about several courses here in Central Ohio that are opening this week.

Wow until June!  I'm itching to hit some balls here in Michigan.  Only a few warm days so far and I wish I would have taken advantage of them when I had the chance.

... I posted this in the Corona 19 thread but it probably applies even more here:

I post this for reference, not politics. For those wondering if you are gonna be forced to follow a Stay At Home order and whether or not your course will be open, take a look at your states Governor. 22 of 24 states with Democrats have issued a SAH. 9 of 26 states with Republicans have issued a SAH. While not all SAH states have declared golf courses non essential, your governor will have the biggest say in whether you can play golf.

Same. We’re in the 50’s this week and for the foreseeable future. I’d expect to see a good amount of play.

 Hello again everyone, after Golf Australia recommending all Australian course to close, and therefore my course Seabrook G C closing last night, I have just received another email saying that the Tasmanian Premier (= USA Governor) said that he regarded golf as excellent exercise and therefore as long as people only play in pairs and respect all other social distancing practices golf is fine. This means that my course re opens tomorrow. Unfortunately I go back to work for 7 days as of tomorrow so missed my game this time. I can only hope that the message is the same in a week's time.🤔

 Not sure what other courses in Tasmania are doing at this point. Hopefully having a game in a week!

Our course is still open as is the rest in our county. One person per cart except couples who live in the same household. Leave the pin in and if close to the pin pick up and count one stroke. The pro shop is open, but the restaurant is closed. If you are in the sand trap you can take it out and drop no closer to the hole. No rakes in the bunker. That being said my wife and I came out Monday and there was only 3 people on the driving range and no one on the first tee. No more than 3 groups on the course. Never seen that here before. People must be staying at home.

I too am very thankful our course is open.  I don't know what I would do if it wasn't.  My best friend lives in MD (just across the DE/MD line) and he is not allowed to come into the state and play.  His course is closed so I guess it's my time to get better than him!!!

The public courses in Fort Collins, CO are closed.  I am not sure about some of the private courses.  I believe Fort Collins Country Club is open to walkers or those who own their own carts with facilities closed.  I am not sure about the other private clubs.
