COVID-19 Minnesota Golf Protocols
The Wild North Golf Association proudly welcomes you to golf in beautiful northern Minnesota.
As we well know by now, in Minnesota, open golf facilities will be mandated to implement the following safety protocols. As golfers, we expect you to do your part by actively incorporating the list below into your personal golf routine.
- Check golf course websites for COVID-19 safety protocols;
- Practice safe social distancing at all times before, during and after play;
- Pay your green fee online or by phone;
- Walk or single-rider carts only;
- Bring your own antibacterial wet wipes for use before, during and after play;
- Upon arrival through departure handle your own golf bag;
- Do not share clubs, touch flagsticks, bunker rakes or ball-washers;
- Do not adjust flagsticks or hole-liners;
Please be mindful that you may be scrutinized by the public and media watching for golfers ignoring COVID-19 safety protocols.
Please also remember that these are unusual times; we have to do what’s best for the health of our families and communities. As part of the golf community, we ask you not to jeopardize the privilege of playing this great game for your fellow golfers. Whatever role you have in the game, please do your part to ensure you’re following the outdoor recreation guidelines set forth by Governor Walz’s emergency executive orders and your golf facility’s COVID-19 safety protocols.
Thank you, and we hope you have a great 2020 golf season.
