There aren't enough ambassadors to get water to you on a 9 hole course NEVER MIND sanitize all the cooler buttons. Are you serious?

If you play with the same group routinely, you should know the people and not have an issue with two in a cart. You're in the open air, walking a bit it's good for you as is social interaction. If you end up with an unknown in the group then by all means use extra carts. wash your hands frequently.

Carry Clorox or Lysol wipes in your cart and think before touching anything.

Why doesn't everyone bring their own cooler with whatever they want to drink? That's what I do. Common sense people.

Is it time for The Villages to adopt similar precautions?

Or given the fact that the CDC now recommends groups of no larger than 10, is it time to stop playing golf or perhaps close the courses?
Do you normally play in a group of ten or more? I think that the CDC recommendation is for close proximity, not spread out over a golf course.
The Beatlemaniacs of The Villages meet every Friday 10:00am at the O'Dell Recreation Center.

I always wear 2 gloves as the balls are dirty. So far it hasn’t improved my game. 😖

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also strongly encourages outdoor fresh air activities. Closing golf courses makes close to zero sense to me except for 19th holes where they exist.

Overkill !!! If someone has issues with sand rakes and holes, then I suggest those people stay away, OR wear sanitized gloves on both hands.

We are all grown ups that can make a quality decision on our own. Your comment reminds me of that "goodie 2 shoes" kid we all knew in school.......always trying to say something to impress everyone.

It didn't work.

No need to close courses. Individual carts should be allowed (which I saw at Pensacola today) and FRESH AIR is good for people.

Has anyone ever considered walking round the course?
It is I assure you, a relaxing way to spend a round of golf.
Smoke, swear, f**t, scratch/pick whatever you fancy, and all without having to consider anyone elses feeling.
Perfect heaven.
