If you are referring to my lawn, I'm in Washington State, God waters my lawn. And in mid June when God takes the rest of the summer off I let my lawn go dormant. Not a drop of city water is used on the lawn.
My home course has been more difficult to get weekend tee times. I figure this is because they have spread out the times from 8 minutes to 12 minutes, so there are just less available spots. I usually book a week in advance, so I haven't had an issue getting a time, but my preferred 7-730am window hasn't always been available.
Masks are required, with strong wording for people who don't comply: "Failure to abide by our protocols will cause a player be escorted off the golf course without a refund." But at times I feel like I'm the only one wearing a mask on the course. I wear a mask routinely for work, even in non-pandemic times, so I guess I'm just used to it, to the point where it is second nature.
The pace of play has improved significantly with the tee times more spread out, and no fiddling with the flagstick. A typical round at this course, even teeing off early morning is over 4 hours, but I've finished in less than 4 every time out so far.
