A handsome day for golf as courses open around the province

A handsome day for golf as courses open around the province”

"Our research shows that the [golf] industry did a great job of addressing concerns related to how the game of golf will return and return safely", said Jon Last, President of Sports & Leisure Research Group.

Despite having 27 holes and a lot of space, Ross says with staggered tee times and social distancing, the club will probably lose 40 to 50 golfers a day compared to a similar day of business from 2019.

Golfers at Llanymynech Golf Club, Oswestry, where the course crosses the border of England and Wales.

Ryhorchuk said the course is now running at about one-quarter of their normal staff, but they hope to be able to bring the rest of their employees back as restrictions are eased.

"We're very excited and anxious to get going", said Harvey Barsanti, one of the owners of the Root River Golf Club. "It's lovely, the weather's great, and we've been waiting a long time so we're happy".

Now, the course is completely booked for the May long weekend, says Vogelsang.

Golfers are to use the west entrance when they arrive, and they are not to arrive more than 15 minutes ahead of their tee times. "And you never know what to expect", he said.

"Golf clubs and golfers have observed the lockdown very well and must keep it up and act responsibly as play resumes".

Turner said that the pool noodle approach was tested, but animals ended up chewing away at them.

"We definitely booked early".

To reduce the number of surfaces people touch, flags must remain in place on the course and cups are elevated, so the ball does not drop into the hole. To limit the transmission of germs by putting your hand in the hole to grab your ball after holing a putt, there will be a foam insert at the MGCC to make sure the ball still goes "in the hole", but it will be high enough where you won't have to bend over to grab it, but rather knock it off with your putter.

"Been a long winter and made a little bit longer with this COVID-19 stuff so I couldn't wait to get out here".

Now that the province is gradually reopening, some of the golfers at Murray wondered if Saskatchewan residents will continue to be as compliant with physical distancing measures as they have been throughout the pandemic.

"I just want to see people enjoying themselves and getting back to this great game", said Vogelsang.
