Socially Distant, as always
Who's out? What is open? Putting to an upside down cup materially change your score?
Some locals have been out already. That said, Myrtle Beach was just locked down as was NC (thru April). Isn't golf essential?Got to think it will be a bumpy ride for courses again this summer. While it is a good social distancing game many folks will be broke and will not be able to afford to play that much. I do know short term the south is getting killed at the end of March and into April. I had a buddy who wanted to go to Myrtle and take advantage of dirt cheap rates but I just cannot justify the drive and risking catching something at a hotel while living on frozen dinners because all the restaurants are closed.
Just to be clear, golf courses are OK, but if the golf course has a driving range, putting or practice green, those might not be OK.Here is what has been going on.
On Saturday evening, the Ohio Department of Health reversed its Thursday decision, allowing golf courses to remain open as recreation areas during the COVID-19 shutdown.neohgolf.com
That's nuts. Players seem to be distancing each other on the range and no-one putts to the same practice green hole. Give us some credit.Just to be clear, golf courses are OK, but if the golf course has a driving range, putting or practice green, those might not be OK.
The local dog track, Highland Park, was absolutely jammed this past Saturday to the point that they were turning away players. Good for them that they were getting $s but there was very little social distancing going on as their employees are worthless and didn't enforce much of anything.
