Order directs limited use of golf courses

Post Date:04/17/2020 2:20 PM

A new order from the Local Health Authority released today, outlines the requirements for limited use that golf courses must follow in order to operate in accordance with the Texas governor and the Texas attorney general. Golf courses may be available for golfing but all congregating at clubhouse and other facility activities are prohibited. The following provisions must be followed at all courses:

  • Golf pro shops must operate by phone or online only. These facilities may not be opened to public access.
  • Clubhouses must be closed.
  • Water coolers, rakes and other commonly handled objects must be removed from the golf course.
  • Players should be encouraged to bring their own pre-filled water bottles.
  • Cups shall be modified so that golfers can retrieve their golf ball without actually touching the cup or the flag, making it a “no-touch” experience.
  • Protective masks must be worn on the golf course property.
  • Golfers should be encouraged to walk.
  • Golf carts shall have only one rider per cart.
  • Carts will be cleaned and disinfected by course staff after each use.
  • Social distancing requirements shall be strictly enforced by golf course staff for all walking golfers and cart users. 

At the conclusion of their round, golfers must leave the premises and are not allowed to linger or congregate.

The City of San Angelo requirement that restaurants must close at 10 p.m. has also been lifted. Restaurants may continue carryout or delivery services beyond 10 p.m. effective immediately.
