According to an email that I received, there are a few tips which golfers (and all of us) can practice to avoid the spread of Coronavirus - COVID-19.
Golf Tips to Minimize Exposure and Spread of Coronavirus (aka COVID-19):
- At tee boxes, fairways and greens, practice "social distancing" by keeping six feet or more from others whenever possible;
- Replace handshakes with other celebratory gestures that don't involve the use of your hands, like "elbow bumps" or "shoe bumps";
- Frequently use hand sanitizer;
- Refrain from handling the golf clubs of other players in your group.
As promoted through articles from multiple national media outlets including Golf Digest and Golf.com, golfers are also asked to exercise their own share of due diligence in minimizing their exposure while enjoying their round of golf.
We hope that you will continue enjoying the golf courses in Myrtle Beach and around the country that are open for play and will remain diligent in enforcing proper hygiene to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
Golf for Beginners thanks you for your help. Play good golf!
