Government is doing their best to mitigate the damage done by COVID-19. One exception to the 'shelter in place' motion set forth 3/25 needs to be the allowance of golf played recreationally and for the purpose of mental and physical well-being. Social distancing will be maintained, ProShops may remain closed (contactless payment on the 1st tee /starter shack or prepayment will allow the courses to get up and running financially), power carts can be restricted or sanitized thoroughly before and after each use (single rider), pins removed from greens (and holes filled to a height ensuring a golfer can retrieve his/her golf ball without touching the cup), no rental equipment during this time, no rakes in the bunkers (rake with your foot), water coolers removed, and other measures protect and ensure the safety of the golfers.
Golf is a much needed mental, emotional, and physical release during this stressful time. Let's get this passed!
