Tips for Golf and Social Distancing

So much for team sports or maybe not. Golf can be a team sport. I’ve been watching the multitude of text and email going back and forth between members at a nearby club and I noticed there’s quite an organization to the whole thing. Although it’s very much an individual game, many of the rounds involve some kind of teamwork among a foursome to defeat others who are vying for low net scores.

Overall, golf can satisfy many of our needs for exercise, challenge, technique, and camaraderie. Best of all, it’s easy to socially distance from one another. You can golf alone or with others; just don’t touch each other.

  • Don’t use the ball washer
  • Avoid rakes in sand-traps
  • Don’t sit on benches
  • Don’t remove flags
  • Don’t shake hands at the end of the round
  • Post your score online

Don’t use the ball washer

Avoid rakes in sand-traps; use your club to tidy up your footprints and sand divots.

Don’t sit on benches

Don’t remove flags and carefully remove your ball from elevated cups.

Don’t shake hands at the end of the round

Post your score online and get out there for some fresh air
