Michigan Golfers Take To Courses With Creative Carts
While golf courses are allowed to open under new stay-at-home order guidelines, golfers have had to get creative without the use of riding carts.
For some walking the entire course with clubs on their backs is hard, trust me, I had to do it when I was on the golf team in high school and it's exhausting!
Golf courses are allowed to provide pull-carts for players who request them, but there are only so many to go around, and according to MLive, golfers are getting creative when it comes to bringing their own.
At Eldorado in Cadillac, general manager Don Smith witnessed one person using a shopping cart while another brought a red wagon.
At WestWynd Golf & Grille in Rochester, players showed up using dollies while another had their clubs in a cooler with wheels, and another was using "a baseball roller bag" as MLive cites the courses Facebook page.
Many courses claim they are not "walking courses" based on their layouts and worry after people walk it once, they will decide not to do it again after finally being able to get out and golf.
Under the revised order, and the Frequently Asked Questions page, “Caddies, starters, and golf carts may not be provided, and clubhouses, pro shops, driving ranges, and miniature golf courses must remain closed."
Players are still abiding by CDC guidelines as they play and courses are finding creative ways for people to not have to touch the pin/flags as they make their way to the greens.
