Chances are….golf might be safe to do

On the sports news front….. there isn’t any. But golfing season isn’t far off, and of all the recreational activities available in the area, it might be one of the safest. That’s what the board is hoping. Of course it’s too early to tell how things might change between now and opening day.

Under current circumstances, no big events would be held, says club president Cory Emes. But if two or three friends want to play a round, that would probably be safe enough, from the point of view of virus-spreading risk.

“We’ll be talking about it,” he says.

Opening day would be at least a month away, so there’s time to make plans. One of the big ‘ifs’ of the scenario would be finding workers and figuring out how to keep them safe. Emes says there are more questions than answers at this point.

“We’ve got to try to open if we can,” Emes says. “But the way things are unfolding….”

Gilwood manager Tony Griffi is due back in town this week and will be sharpening up plans for 2020 with the board.
