Is Golf Back to Normal Where You Play?

Recommended Posts

It may depend on the course here. From what I've seen, there are still no rakes, ball washers, water jugs, etc. It's not back to normal yet.

I like to use caddies but I was staying away from using them until I got vaccinated. I feel better about it now and walking 18 holes with a good caddie is one of my joys in life.

What's a looper in Philly, with tip, run you these days?  That's a great route to go.  Used to caddie as as kid.

Are push carts not a thing in Philly?

My club is pretty much back to normal.  2 riders per cart, rakes in bunkers, ball washers with water, food available inside, etc. Masks are optional except for staff...they must wear masks. The number of rounds is still very high and our number of golf members is close to maximum.

If you've never had a (good) caddie you don't know what you're missing...

Unfortunately I have only played 1 course where a caddie was an option and I was already paired up with a dude in a cart!

I mostly play munis and public courses. No caddies, you either, ride, carry or push!


I had hoped one day to make it to Scotland, where my buddy stated weathered caddies know the course, curse at you and add to an already wonderful experience.

No, masks still required in the club house, most courses don't have rakes at the traps, and many don't have ball washers, and almost all on course drinking fountains are secured.  However there are a few, and I mean a few, that have totally opened on the course.  But I don't know any that don't still require a mask in the pro shop/clubhouse.

I  played yesterday and need update this.  It would appear we are back to normal on the course.  Rakes in the traps, water in the ball washers,  no single rider golf carts in sight, and flags can be pulled.  The one exception is masks and distancing in the clubhouse and pro shops still in place.

Still not "normal" yet. We still have the things in the bottom of the cups and there are no ball washers or water coolers on the course. Some courses have the beverage cart going again, but not all of them.

I said the courses around me are back to normal but I don't recall any ball washers on the courses that I've played (3) this year.

No, It is a mixed bag in the SE corner of the Mitten [@dennyjones lives more north than I].  Some courses have adjustments to the hole while at the end of 2020, there were courses without any adjustments.  Some courses now have rakes with the bunkers but not all.  No ball washers.  No drinking water.  Most courses require 2 players per cart or a maximum of 2 carts per tee time.  Masks mandatory in the clubhouse.  No on-course beverages or food but some places allow inside dining/drinking as well as outside.  Carts are sanitized to varying degrees after use.

The number of rounds played continues to be very high and courses seem to be increasing prices and reducing  discounts in line with golf's new popularity.

You cannot bring your own at my course. You have to use the ones they offer and they are way too heavy. I prefer to carry my bag than use one of those push carts. But I find it far better with a caddie as this 68 year old body prefers to walk the course unencumbered outside of the golf devils in my head.

Sounds like your course is a bit greedy.  Next thing you know you won't be able to use your own clubs... you'll have to rent.

    • And yet the NFL and NCAA exist and the others do not. So who really won? No damages awarded? Pyrrhic victory at best. LIV only exists to try and take the PGAT down. They will fail as the others did. Your argument is still very weak.

    • You can search the topic, and yes, it has been mentioned. Recently. Not the PGA Tour's fault that there's no "meaningful choice." Plus the word "meaningful" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. They have a choice. They have several choices. PGA Tour players make about the same percentage of what their sport creates as players in other sports. Golf is a niche sport. It's not the freaking NFL. It's not even the NHL. The law hasn't spoken on this. So, no, not "regardless of the law." And, let's remember, the TRO was denied. If the judge felt the suspensions were not legal, that would have played a role in her granting the TRO.
