Social Distancing, Health, and Golf
Of great importance at this time, golf lends itself to social distancing, and many golfers even enjoy playing alone, walking the course or riding in a golf cart. With a few minor adjustments, it’s possible to enjoy a round and adhere to current health guidelines. Touch points like bunker rakes and flagsticks must be avoided, and modifications to the holes make it easier to prevent touching when retrieving the golf balls. One golfer per golf cart (unless the other is a member of the household) is the rule at most courses. Naturally, being active outdoors in wide-open surroundings is another plus.
