I figure you will get better deals from shops that might go bankrupt if the virus forces a long enough quarantine. Any business that survives the quarantine will see business pick up and won't be tempted to clear stock unless new stock comes in. That also looks to be delayed with companies shuttering for a while and potential travel restrictions.
One thing we did in our league last year is combine skins and low net. So half of the pot goes to gross skins and the other half of the pot goes to low net. This way both spectrum's of the league have a chance at winning some cash.
We still have some golf, including at the course where I'm supposed to play in league this year. I have no idea if that's going to happen.
I'll tell you one course where it WON'T happen! Well, I honestly don't know if I should display their name. It's a local course that we really like, a Brian Huntley design. He's out of Canton, OH and has done a few courses in this area. The front nine is mostly like playing through a housing development, but there are a few holes where you can get away from that. The back nine is like playing through a nature preserve! It's gorgeous! And tough!
They sent an e-mail saying they were open and outlining their COVID-19 precautions. First of all, they were charging "in season" rates in March, in NE Ohio, where it's mudball, plugball! Then to have a cart by yourself would only cost you 10 bucks more! Per nine! Are you serious?!
We scratched that one off our list. We wont' go back until they come to their senses, which they may never do. The course is extremely popular, and put a locally owned course that was quite nice, out of business shortly after it opened. So, I figure that they rule the roost down there.
I doubt there will be that many deals. Golf Galaxy's here in Michigan are still selling three year old drivers for $450-$500 depending on the brand/model. I guess if this lasts well into the summer, maybe we'll see some deals.
