Most course's are and should, removing rakes, sand bottles, leave the pin in, book online take your pencil and scorecard home with you / wipe down carts if used and singles in carts... Be conciensious about it but go play and be practical and deliberate of your actions!

I live in SoCal, so as soon as it stops raining, I plan to go to our club (which is closed except for actual golf)
carry a small bag and walk 9 holes. I'm 71 and healthy and need fresh air and exercise. What better way?!

    Stop the panic, but spread the virus. Got it.

For sanity sake golf courses should stay open. They can easily figure out safe practices. And if you’re also being safe off the course chance of spread very low. Plus you’re going to play with people you trust are doing the same. No carts though. Walking only.

I'd love to keep playing but please think of all those that have to keep the operations running. You might not have any contact w/ anyone at the course but a person still working has the potential to come into contact with everyone that still comes out to play. We just don't know enough yet in how this virus works.

Imagine thinking you could get the Chinese virus by playing golf. People have gone mad.

Playing golf is an important therapeutic diversion from the crisis of the day. As long as there is social distancing, I see nothing wrong with playing golf.

I’m playing mostly as a single, carrying my bag , not holing out, no rakes, headphones on, listening to classic rock and working on my game while burning LBS.
