OK I see another of my posts was removed by the "PC Police". I'm thinking I may have to go whole hog, just to keep them busy and on their toes. 

Hey! Great idea!😒

Great information.   How the heck are courses in states like Michigan and Minnesota going to recover if maintenance isn't allowed?   This sucks.

I had a picture of my old country club that closed abruptly, but I can't find it. It isn't pretty. They go to 💩 very quickly.

Well at least they can do maintenance in Maryland, but still planning to sneak across the WV or VA border to play.

How are state governments regulating golf courses in the United States?

What stinks is RI courses are open, but out of staters are required to self quarantine for 14 days before going to local businesses. The police came by my cottage while my contractor was there.

Yeah that's what I hear. But at least courses are open… we're still closed in PA. This Sunday/Monday it's supposed to be in the 60s.

I am so ready to be back on the golf course, so ready to hang out with buds and budettes at the local watering hole(s), so ready not to have to disinfect everything I might touch, so ready to stop washing my hands 20 times a day, so ready to not feel like I'll die if I grocery shop, so ready for everything to open again... so ready...

In 31 days... minimum.

(But did anyone notice that May 5, the potential day we go off this is Cinco de Mayo?! Margaritas all around! And the day this all started in Washington: National Melba Toast Day!)

Yeah...

I'll wager a margarita that this is extended through at least the end of June.

I won't accept that wager because you are probably correct... sadly.  But if businesses/courses do open on May 5 I will send you a margarita in celebration, made with clean hands and wearing a mask.

Do you need a reason for a margarita?
