Are rounds played using Covid rules able to be used for GHIN?
Yes. We wrote about it here a month or so ago:
IN GEORGIA DO YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THE FLAG ON THE HOLE DURING THE PANDEMIC ?
Many courses are putting styrofoam in the cups that the flagstick goes thru eliminating picking the flag up and making it easier to get the ball without touching the flagstick. The problem arises when putting, in that the foam in the cup, while below the lip of the cup, can deter the ball from staying in the hole and causes lip outs that normally wouldn't have occurred. How do you rectify this?
My tee shot hit the raised cup liner on a par 3 and rolled back about 12”. Can it be considered a hole-in-one. Is a hole-in-one possible with new safety rules?
Well I just did the same thing this past weekend and we are counting it :)
All it takes is for everyone to realize the real danger of non-social distancing. In Johns Creek, Georgia, we are fortunate that our course has remained open even while the clubhouse and restaurant facilities are not. The owner/manager continuously stresses social distancing and members appear to be heeding his directions. Rivermont Golf and Country Club is to be praised for its efforts to keep members playing and exercising during this horrible time.
I am retired and love to golf, please don't take this away. life would not be worth it if we can't stay active. I think people can golf and be safe, let not over react.
6 feet distance means nothing outside in even the slightest wind. 30 feet would be the safe golf distance giving the spittle time to disperse before contaminating whoever happens to be downwind.
If a citizen as so much opens their mouth and butt's into my business they will get smacked across the face as a 1st warning. Similar to the corrupt government thinking they can shut down whatver the hell they want. Who the hell made them God? Oh wait maybe the god of this world? People need to go ind their own business, the government needs to stop pretending they are for the people and care about our health. You k ow the same people that force vaccinations, put flouride in your water to protect your teeth of course and lace our food with sugar whime maintaining that mcdonalds, burger king, wendys, and the like are essential businesses. Just not anything good for your health.
One golfer per cart or walking only. Leave the flag in, in all cases. Once you start to putt, complete it. Raise the cup one inch. If your ball hits the raised cup, consider it a made putt and retrieve your ball only. Then advise your golfing partner to putt. Do not shake hands after the round. Maintain "social distance" through out the round. When finished, wave good bye. Go home.
sure sounds easy to me-especially if it gets us out of the house andgenerates some dollars locally.
If members use their private cart, can a husband and wife play a round in their own cart?
The courses in NY are closed by the state... do we lose our reward rounds if they expire during the closings ?
