Westchester County golf courses remain open, state to limit some courses
New York has reversed its position, and now says state golf courses will not be shut down because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The state parks department at first said all of its courses were off limits, but today said some courses would be open to limited play.
The state says courses need to increase intervals between tee times, remove ball washers and bunker rakes, and decrease the use of golf carts and facilities.
Meantime, Westchester County golf courses remain open.
Officials say the six courses are operating with the understanding that all customers and employees practice safe 'social distancing.’
Golfers are asked not to gather in groups or clusters while on or off the course.
