My course in Florida has been open throughout the pandemic, and I haven't missed playing much except for weather or to rest my sore back.  For the most part, the members and especially my regular group of about 20 or so have been great about being careful to give each other space, and the course had some excellent on-course rules in place to keep us safe--no rakes, pin left in , one to a cart, etc.  Of course, the grill/restaurant was closed until just recently when the state began relaxing the social distancing requirements.  Upon reopening, they did an excellent job of keeping us reasonably separated and were fanatical about hygiene and sanitation.  But, alas, it was probably a little too soon to begin to feel comfortable.  One of our wait staff in the grill took a travel vacation a couple of weeks ago.  Don't know where she went, but, she got sick, and upon return came into work for a few days.  Yesterday we got word she tested positive for COVID!  She's only 19 and probably didn't take this thing too seriously.  I know when I was that age, I felt bullet-proof.  LOL  AT any rate, the clubhouse is again closed pending every employee being tested.  She had served me  in the grille a few times over the past couple weeks, so I've been exposed.  I got tested yesterday and will get the results in 48-72 hours.  In the meantime, I'll be confined to self-imposed quarantine, and if positive that will extend for awhile.  Obviously, I'm pretty bummed out about it, because I've been pretty good about practicing safe "covid practices" and never go into a store without a mast, for example.  At 78, I'm in the high risk category, but am in pretty good shape for an old.  I worry more about my wife, who is much more  fragile at this point. 

I post this only to remind everyone that this thing is far from over.  Florida, for instance, has seen a significant  increase in cases in some cities, as has some other states.  I've personally noticed that the number of people I see in grocery stores and other retailers who are wearing masks has dramatically decreased.'  Just be careful; be vigilant in avoiding the tendency to become complacent.

Good post. The thing is crazy and MA who has been extremely strict still is keeping very low low numbers which is great. 
hope all comes back negative for you and stay safe

Thanks for the post.  

 

I am back in the midwest, but I still get the member e-mails from my course in Florida.  Two weeks ago, the pro sent out an email with a plan to relax social distancing guidelines at the club.  He proposed going back to shared carts and a couple of changes regarding the proshop.  I was surprised at the response, but happy with it.  Basically, the membership said no to the changes.  The protocols adopted in March are going to stay in place.

Our course has pretty much eliminated safety measures other than urging people to stay 6 feet apart.  And they are charging extra for the privilege of riding alone in a cart.  Luckily, I just bought a cart.  I live in Mississippi where cases are increasing.  Unfortunately, most people here don't seem to be taking this thing seriously.

My test came back negative, thankfully.   Of course, the very next sentence after they say "negative" was to say "that doesn't mean you're not infected.  It just means that no evidence of the virus was present in the sample at the time you took your test".  They then point out that if the the test was done very early after being exposed, it may not show up yet on the test, and a few other situations that could result in a false negative test result.  Doesn't instill a great deal of confidence.  However, I still have no symptoms and feel pretty certain that I'm not infected.  I'm still being very careful, though, for my sake and those with whom I come in contact.

Florida's governor, by the way just closed all the bars again, and replaced some of the restrictions that were previously relaxed, due to the soaring number of cases here.  Not sure if it's state-wide, but in Pensacola you now cannot enter grocery stores, restaurants, etc., without a mask on.  That's even stricter than before.

Seems to be the trend.   Carts are now 2 per cart locally for me.   Still no rakes or water on the course;  still have pool noodles in the holes.

Our course continues to keep the safety measures in play, although they have allowed 2 persons per cart IF wanted.  They still encourage social distancing, no rakes, noodles in the hole, no sand/seed bottles on club carts, no cash transactions at snack shack or pub/restaurant  (we're a private club so it just goes on our account), etc.

Oh yes, I’m acutely aware of what’s going on in Florida as I live here, St Pete, and am the ultimate decision maker for a church, school and pre-school.

 

We all of us need to be wise, keep our distance, wash our hands, and stay home if we have symptoms. My son, who lives with us, is on mandatory test number two in the last ten days because of coworkers being infected. That actually forces me to work from home based on the rules that we’ve put in place at work. I had to miss church Father’s Day weekend (my associate was preaching). I’m on vacation this weekend so no big deal.

 

My club removed the one in a cart rule. I’ve stopped playing there unless it’s with my son or a very close friend whom I hang out with a lot. We play his club instead and walk.

Our requirements vary by county, depending on what phase they are in.  Restaurants and bars are open in some counties, not in others (mine).  We now have a state-wide mandate to wear masks whenever we are in public spaces.  

Our rules for golf haven't changed since our course opened on May 5, except that we can now pair up in a cart if we are from the same household.

Our state made masks mandatory and postponed further reopening last Fri, and it’s a good thing IMO as most residents quickly quit wearing masks and distancing once reopening phase 2 was enacted in late May. Voluntary compliance was surprisingly good in Apr-early May but that didn’t last.

My wife and I have worn masks and stayed 6 feet away throughout, glad others are doing it again.

Courses I play are still one to a cart but there’s talk of them implementing a surcharge for the privilege. They started permitting two riders a few weeks ago. Grill is open, with plexi at the counter and credit only, no cash. No rakes, no touching pins, shallow cups. Our league was shotgun starts, now regular tee times to force us apart. Our weekly league wager stopped as our admin refused to handle cash or deal with everyone close up. I’ve offered to automate it all online, but they’re not interested in ANY changes.

As long as I can still play golf, I’ll follow any rules I’m asked to...

I just received an e-mail from the pro at my Florida club.  He and the restaurant staff went to a "Safe Serve" conference regarding serving alcohol on Monday.  Today they were informed that one of the instructors just tested positive for the virus.  A bit ironic.  

 

The club is shutting down inside food and drink service temporarily.  The staff practiced social distancing at the conference, so hopefully it was enough.  We'll see in the next week or so.  

 

Stay safe everyone.

We’ve had 4 church members test positive the past week. Two are young, healthy and asymptomatic. The other two are a husband and wife in their late 70’s with underlying health issues to boot.

Mr is clinging to his life on a ventilator. The saddest part is that they self quarantined right from the start. A month ago they had dinner at a neighbor’s house. He subsequently developed symptoms and tested positive.

Very sad, and of course I can’t visit him in the hospital either. Fortunately his daughter is a nurse.

I mentioned before that my father tested negative for antibodies, however those tests are 50% accurate at best. After seeing him intubated for the better part of a week and knowing that if he hadn't called 911 when he did that he would have died (he was intubated immediately in the ambulance after he crashed) I will be wearing masks and continuing to social distance for quite some time.

My approach to masks is pretty simple:  do unto others.  

 

A mask provides me some protection; it's main benefit is to protect others.

Fully agree and I always wear a mask these days out in public. Though selfishly a main reason is to protect myself and my family. I mainly wear an N95 that I had left over from random construction projects around the house.

Sorry to hear about your church friends.
C19 is rearing it’s head here also w cases popping up. We were invited to a small dinner party Saturday night and SWMBO declined the invite. Just don’t know anymore.
