    Course near my house is absolutely jammed. I thought it was closed and was going to sneak on this secluded 3 hole stretch to hit some balls but had to bail on that.

    The country club a lot of our friends go to has it spreading through it like crazy. There was the paddle tennis tournament there a week and a half ago that seems to have got a lot of people and then more and more kept going last weekend for dinner/paddle. Probably a couple dozen at least with Corona.

    Thank goodness for being poor and not joining there yet

    this in CT/NY? I was there and heard someone had it during the tournament. My buddy who is pro across street from my club said he was just told he gave a lesson to someone who tested positive.

    I don’t understand how public courses can be open with the stay at home order. My father in laws club is completely closed. Some public courses seem to be taking the chance, likely because they can’t afford to not be open.

    It will be really interesting how this all plays out. You have the biggest tournaments all in danger, FedEx cup doesn't want to start up with just the wrap around season, and West Coast swing then you have the dud of the wrap around season (start new season?) standing in the way of the tournaments we all want to see being rescheduled in the fall. There are probably going to be sponsors that are at risk of dropping or at least would be willing to be off the hook for a year.

    People are heated up on next door about this course being open.

    Read a post there and a bunch of people called to complain they were open and they were hung up on. People now taking pictures of the groups playing to document who is not following the order.

    There are also some very upset posts about the men in the park playing soccer.

    Yeah man that sucks. I've talked to a couple people who were supposed to go to Masters for the first time ever. One of my good friends was supposed to play in some sort of ANGC member guest the week after the Masters. He's beside himself.

    States on lockdown, but was able to get out in golf today. Was much needed. Looks like only one day in the next 10 is going to have decent weather again. Back to shelter in place.

    Went golfing for the first time in like 2 years over the weekend. Driver was not pretty, but irons were pretty decent. Played The Plantation in Ft Myers. First time on a private course. Water on every hole. Had to use a loaner set of clubs. I am full of excuses. Shot like a 105, gross.

    Incredibly lame that golf channel is just bowing out to tournament sponsors rather than playing classic golf. Nothing but Valspar and Dell replays.

    I am waiting for this to happen in Michigan. Going out again this afternoon, but know there is growing hatred for people golfing. This is the last nice day in the 10 day though as well.

    I will say it's bullshit for our course anyway. All employees are under the Shelter in Place and cant work except for the kitchen that allows takeout orders. It's just members that have their clubs available can go to the course. No rakes, no pins, no ball washers, no garbage cans, no range, etc. Everything is locked up so there is no contact except for who you are playing with.

    Push cart mafia guy here and it thankfully has a clip for the card. I wouldn’t think much of seeing a guy pull a book out of his pocket to write on his card because I’ve definitely sweat through shorts enough to ruin multiple cards before
