Update on Golf Courses

Post Date:04/11/2020 12:12 PM
Golf courses in San Angelo can be utilized for limited purposes beginning Monday, April 13th per the direction of Governor Greg Abbott. 
In an address on Friday, April 10, Abbott stated, “Golf courses was not included in the list of essential services, however we did say that people should feel free to go take a walk in a park to advance their own personal health. So here’s the way that is applied, and that is, golf courses and the staff that work at golf courses, the employment operation of it, has to be closed for a couple of reasons, one so you don’t have people within the clubhouse say who could be transmitting the coronavirus but also it wouldn’t provide a gathering place where people could contract the coronavirus. However people are free to walk along, or even with a golf club and a golf ball, go along a golf course, a public golf course anybody can. A private golf course, the clubhouse is supposed to be closed, but members who are authorized to be on that premises, can walk along the course with a golf club and golf ball. As long as they are all maintaining safe distancing practices and following the CDC standards to make sure they aren’t transmitting the coronavirus.”
Citizens should contact local golf courses to see how they are going to proceed under the governors direction.
