Is your course open or closed?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Portland, OR courses remain opened with the safety guidelines enacted and I believe the same is true for most, if not all of OR. Our governor mandated "relatively relaxed" stay in place guidelines and encourages mental and physical well-being during the crisis as long as guidelines are followed.

Course Safety:

Tee times booked online, digital transactions preferred
No Cash
Flag sticks not touched
Cups flipped for shallow ball retrieval
1 per cart (unless same household)
No rakes

I haven't been to a course in a little over a week, but I would imagine the greens crew is going to have to pull back from normal operation conditions. I'm interested to see how that effects the courses.

Still closed.  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 a

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 recei

Home Course/Club has two 18 hole courses.  Both closed (State of MD mandated).  Who knows for how long???

Another question:  for those of you that pay dues...how you feeling about having to pay full dues with ZERO golf?  I am torn...i get it that course have to be maintained but FULL dues.  Rounds will be awfully expensive this year.....

Its a tough time for the golf courses too.  They have commitments, mortgage and other loans, and at least a minimum level of staff to pay to keep everything from falling apart.  That said, the federal stimulus has made money available to help with those things.  To me, the right thing to do from a club owner standpoint is to see how things work out, see how it looks a few months after play is allowed to resume, and only then consider doing something to repay the loyalty of those who continued to pay dues.  

In my mind, that's the right thing for any club that has dues-paying members, whether its a private equity club, a private for-profit club, or a semi-private club that has both members and outside play.  Hopefully, loyalty gets rewarded.

Florida........home to many many golf courses......Effective at midnight Thursday night for 30 days, all non essential businesses will be closed. To my knowledge, this includes the golf courses, but our GM says that is not completely clear at this time. Hopefully we will know more tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Thursday’s is usually my honey-do day. Gotta talk to SWMBO tonight and try to play tomorrow.

Seems to be the trend; the stipulation will be they must follow social distancing.

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.


Still open down in Colorado Springs, played 9 today. Social distancing is very evident.

Crowds were down today, walked 9 in 1.5hrs even though we had to wait on a few holes.

Where did you play?  I have played Patty Jewett more times than I can count (between 1986-1987, 1989).  I last played it a couple years ago.  I also spent a fair bit of time playing Pine Creek back in the early 90s.  Colorado Springs is my hometown.

Our course never opened for the season, but the club itself has also been closed for about a month or so.

I don't miss the golf so much because we never got started, but I miss going to the club a lot.

Even if it were open, though, none of my crew would be going anyway.

We're taking this thing seriously.

Our course in CT just opened up again this week. 

The cups were raised, now they are down and have the foam noodle in the cup.

 I would rather have the cup raised. Not sure if I really want to play yet. 

I’m coming off quarantine today. Our whole department has been out, with one coworker on a ventilator for over a week. Scary stuff!

Unfortunately in PA all the courses are closed.  Although yesterday I did see a couple of golfers walking along the ninth hole at a local course.  I believe all the flags and rakes have been removed.  No word on when they will be re-opened.

Courses in East TN are open. My course is one  to a cart unless family. Cut pool noodles in the cups to keep the ball 1 inch from the top. No rakes for bunkers, no flags on the putting green. Asked not to touch flags on the green. Removed ball washers. Carts are disinfected after each round. Club house is closed but you can order from a take out window for food to go.

My regular course is still open but all the muni courses are now closed in the Oklahoma City area.  I think it is likely a matter of time before all courses will be forced to close even though I don't personally see the risk playing golf unless one is just not taking any precautions at all.  The State has not implemented a stay at home mandate and the Governor is taking a lot of heat since Oklahoma is becoming a hot spot.  I think we are about to come to a grinding halt here.
