Just wondering if there's any members living in San Diego that knows of some courses that are open during this time? I am beginning to develop stock home syndrome being locked up and not being able to play. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

isn't the idea behind a quarantine to stay indoors where possible, stay safe and take the strain out the health system?

I’m pretty sure that the governor closed all courses on Monday or Tuesday of this week. Most states have shut down golf as non essential business.

I saw a report yesterday that 12 states have closed golf courses. I see no problem with it as long as people social distance themselves. Open air therapy used to be a thing....before the invention of antibiotics.

Issued this week for NYS. It’s for the good despite the mild weather. I’ll just have to find some time to practice in the yard.

We (in Virginia) have all non-essential businesses closed, but last I heard (a few days ago) many (possibly most) courses are open, but there are limitations. Some have no range. Most wipe down carts, restaurants/grills closed, only one group on tee box at a time, no rakes in bunkers, etc. Hoping to get out in a few days, if they are indeed still open.

The Executive Directive on Monday for Virginia didn't shut down golf courses, but they're required to take precautions.  In my are of Northern Virginia, the County and Park Association courses have been closed.  I understand that some privately-owned public courses are open, and my home private club is open.  One player per cart, no rakes or water coolers, only carry-out food, pool noodles in holes to keep the ball near the lip, and no hanging around before or after.  With golf, we can stay pretty far from each other if we pay attention, but old habits are hard to break.

I have been finding it seems to depend on the course; the last course I played still had rakes and allowed multiples in carts.   Still haven't found any courses that are closed...or at least the ones I typically play.

Plenty of courses around here still open.  Plenty closed, too.  Golf really is one of the safer activities that we can participate in.  Makes no sense to close the courses.

Plenty of open courses here in Arkansas.  Each course seems to be doing things a little differently.   But if the government catches on that a bunch of people from out of state are playing golf, then they will shut it down like they did the parks.  City parks were already closed, but then the state run parks like the ones along the Buffalo River were closed due to out of staters (thanks Tennesseans).

Oregon still has courses open, although some have chosen to close temporarily.  I've played twice during the quarantine and haven't had any issue with keeping a safe distance or touching anything.  I think we need to keep open air venues open for the public. Being outside is good for your immune system! Trust me I'm a healthcare professional 😆😉

I think the difference is population density. East coast is so much more densely populated that there needs to be the stricter measures.

I've been playing virtual rounds with the Garmin G80 in the back yard too.  Definitely been worth the impulse buy!

Our course opened up April 1st and I've played (not very well) 9 rounds so far. FYI my wife who doesn't practice and is very casual about the game beat me by 3 strokes yesterday. Maybe she's on to something.

Population density should have no impact on golf course operation.  It doesn't matter what the density is in the local area, if there are 4 (or 5) per tee time and they're 8 (or 10 or 12) minutes apart, then they're safe.  There's no reason golf can't continue.

Oh I totally agree.  I've played a few times and haven't contacted anyone other than those in my group.  And even then we were able to keep our distance.  The difference is in area's where the virus is affecting peoples lives more you're going to see more "non-essential" operations like golf courses shut down for the sake of public safety.  I'm of the opinion though that golf courses in general should be left to make their own decision's on whether or not to continue in operation because of the space it allows people to keep.  Ultimately we're in a unique time and I think we need to have grace for the people making these decisions.

This conversation could go on for ages, but since I'm new here, I don't know how political discussions are viewed and I'll bow out.  I think we agree on this topic for the most part though.

Re: political discussions fall under our 'moral codes' which you can find on the MGS site. To make it easier for you: no political discussions allowed so glad you 'bowed out'.

Shouldn’t any business decide what’s best for themselves? The term essential means it can be interpreted by everyone differently. 
 

There are lots of questionable decisions being made. I’ll use NY as an example. They announced last week that they were starting to flatten the curve and that the numbers predicted for beds had dropped by 75% from 2 days prior. They determined at that point that golf courses were non essential despite them being open the entire time and it didn’t stop them from being able to get the curve to flatten and reduce the number of cases. Now they are implementing gloves and masks in public. If things are getting better despite those not being in place what is it doing now that couldn’t have been done before
