Can You Play Golf Amid Coronovirus Concerns?

Golf Digest addresses the anxiety brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and suggests golf might be just the right antidote in Mike Stachura’s story, Can You Play Golf Amid Coronavirus Concerns? With Proper Precautions, Yes.

 

One of the healthy things to do is be outside in the daylight, avoiding crowds. Beneficial suggestions include:

  • practice social distancing
  • walk or request your own cart
  • handle your own clubs only
  • leave the flagstick in while putting
  • forego the 18th green handshake

“Less stress, physical activity, being outdoors, taking in nature. Maybe hitting more practice balls on the range or even walking the course at night with a club and a few balls. Sounds a lot like the game we love. Be careful out there.” – Mike Stachura, Golf Digest

 

 

You Can Still Play Golf 

From Dr. Kelly Cawcutt, associate director of infection control and hospital epidemiology and Nebraska biocontainment unit member at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska and also so says Kelly Cawcutt, golfer, wife of a golfer, mother of a golfer and daughter of a golfer:

 

“Precaution is the name of the game. It’s very reasonable to play if you are smart about it and follow the proper guidance. You’ll have to follow precautions that you normally wouldn’t have to, but I would play under that guidance.”
