    IMO the courses could potentially open and if self governed with social distancing you could play golf easily.
    The courses themselves are huge and if you had a bunch of friends in the same group , you could be responsible and respectful of yourself & others, while still having a game of golf.
    However, with the provincial rules & guidelines, I dont think were gonna get on a course anytime soon...I hope I'm wrong
    At the end of the day ... It gets dark

    I don't disagree though it's tough to allow one thing and not another and in general sends a mixed message to the public. That and there are lots of covidiots out there that can't seem to follow any sort of rules put into place.
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    My understanding is that courses here in Ontario will be permitted to have a minimum maintenance staff so that at least some work can be done. This will allow for courses to at least be ready whenever they can open again.

    Here is the actual release

    Wednesday, April 1st, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 2020-91. The EO states that effective April 3 at 12:01, all persons in Florida shall limit their movements and personal interactions outside of their home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities until April 30. Per confirmation through the Governor’s Office, Golf is considered an essential activity as long as proper social distancing is maintained. Proper Social Distancing includes one person per cart, no exceptions!

    Please continue your part and operate your facilities with exemplary practices and monitory your golfers to ensure they are using proper social distancing regardless of where they are on the property.

    This is reasonable.

    What's happening in Florida is scary. They are just now realizing that restrictions are required, yet letting golf courses stay open.
    You always hit a good shot on 18 to keep you coming back.

    Too bad I came home-but glad I did. We could have played those courses for 1/2 the money although King's Ridge was starting to get a little beat up. Celebration sent me a note saying they would allow me to play for 55.00 down from 125.00 (non resident) I won't say what my reply was. Wonder how many of these high end courses will still be around next year. We played Kings--Plantation--Arlington--Solivita--Big Cyprus--Red Tail--Deer Island all in the neighborhood of 35.00 after 1:00---all were worth every cent. We did not need Disney or any of the resort courses as they get pretty beaten up by the 1st of March anyway. Don't know what will happen for next year---won't plan on packing before the day we leave

    On the home front I sent a note to EG asking if any plans were in the works for a shortened season---all I got was "we were basically waiting to see"---nothing specific. After watching this mornings news I think the writing is on the wall
    All we can do is sit tight and be safe

    We did quarantine for 16 days---got groceries this morning and was shocked by the attitude of some folks------this is going to get worse before it gets better.
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    I wouldn’t write the season off just yet but we aren’t playing this spring. Not locally anyway. But the second part is what scares me. The ripple effect down the road. How do small businesses ride this out? How do golf courses survive? It has me worried. The smoke and mirrors taking place in the stock market right now is no reflection of what’s happening in the economy. It’s going to be very bad.

    The TSX was actually up for the week. People have priced in an April recovery. If this lasts longer, which I strongly believe it will, we could be talking about a depression and not a recession.
