  1. I still believe that, with a few precautions, playing golf in the time of COVID-19 can be a safe activity that will provide more benefits (fresh air, exercise, a little piece of "normal" and socialization while maintaining a safe distance) than risks. With a few minor changes (the second question), golf courses in most of the country should, IMO, be open for play. Yet here in PA, and perhaps because our governor is in Harrisburg and closer to Philadelphia (and NYC), golf courses have remained closed since last Thursday night. In Ohio, the Golf Superintendents Network sent out an email that, in part, says this: That link, if it doesn't work, is to this: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/home/public-health-orders/directors-order-to-stay-at-home. It currently just links to a PDF, here: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/DirectorsOrderStayAtHome.pdf One of the allowed exceptions to staying at home is: In other words, you can play golf, and people in Ohio are, for the most part, still able to play golf with modifications. Note that if your situation changes, you can click "Show Vote Options" and change your vote(s). Please do so as the situation around you changes. I hope to be changing my vote(s) soon from "closed" to "open" on some level.
  2. An interesting topic to think about with some courses having moved to walking only. Will players that are being forced to walk now (if they even play) continue the trend once things return to normalcy, because they find that they like it more? Will golf courses end up raising fees if they see revenue fallout if there are less carts being rented? Discuss if you like, I'll chime in my thoughts after a few replies. Edit* This is geared toward American golf trends. I know that most of the world already walks almost all of the time.
  3. Earlier yesterday I received a letter that mandated I close TST due to its status as a "non-essential" business. As many others know, Governor Tom Wolf of PA has closed golf courses state-wide, and now is closing all golf-related activity, despite courses in OH, NY, and WV remaining open so long as they follow the proper guidelines. At midnight tonight, I'm shutting TST down in order to comply with the order from Governor Wolf. This is a sad day, and I can only hope that we will be able to re-open TST at some point in June or July or whenever we finally get the all-clear. In the meantime, please consider signing this petition: Petition · LET PENNSYLVANIA GOLF · Change.org LET PENNSYLVANIA GOLF Thank you. I'll see y'all on the flip side. P.S. Please check back tomorrow, as I plan to leave at least a comment form where you can sign your name and forward a pre-written email to Governor Wolf or something in support of allowing TST to continue operating. Our server, after all, isn't in PA.
