Share Something Positive From This COVID-19 Mess

I’ve seen what’s overall positive for the game of golf at my course. Spoke with the general manager and there’s quite an influx of families coming to enjoy a round of golf for the first time or a long time since. Only one per cart unless family member or roommate. But I’ve seen quite a bit of players out there who obviously not regular golfers. Hopefully they’ll keep playing when all this passes.

Now that courses are open in NJ with new restrictions, pace of play has been great. I no longer feel limited to playing only in the mornings in order to get 18 holes in under 4:00.

Is that mostly because of the twosome rule?  Or other things, as well?  I'm playing Tuesday and am hoping things move quickly.

It is actually strange. Played today. There was a twosome in front of us and the group behind us, foursome was always on the tee box a hole behind. I think my foursome played slower this way. Odd!

Twosomes and 16 minute intervals.

Yesterday there were times my partner and I had to wait on the pair of higher handicap players ahead of us, but it might have added 15 minutes total to the round at most. We still finished in 3:22. We had the third tee time of the day.

Today I teed off at 12:52 and played with a man with a disability, so he didn't move very quickly outside of his cart. We finished in 3:16.
