The difference being that you're driving on a path on the Exec's, with the exception of a few par 4's depending on the course. But even then, 4 carts should not be driving on the fairway.

Easy Peasy - You tell the starter the person your doubling up with smoker. Give the starter the choice of either telling the golfer he can't smoke or you the starter make the decision of who is not playing. I suspect we are talking about the difference between rules and guidelines on this subject.

And last time I checked, 2 people was not considered a crowd. So if your concern is your golfing buddies have it just stay away from them. Self quarantine as you think you might need. Would you still go to the movies, to the Sharon? Dance on the square? Someone here in the Villages will be the first reported case here and than it will spread like wild fire. So practice self controlled quarantine now.

“Minimally” or “briefly” can result in a positive test result for the virus. It is time to unite against the virus, not each other. There is no excuse to be selfish or foolish. If this is indeed America’s Friendliest Hometown, we should look out for one other.

I worked at a country club in Virginia. The members regularly drove past the cart path markers in the rough. I asked the superintendent is that should be allowed. He said that was contrary to his preference and should not be permitted. His reason was the rough is much more sensitive to damage than the fairway. The fairway is fertilized, aerated, irrigated, and treated with fungicides, insecticides, and other chemicals to strengthen it. The rough is pretty much on its own. So, he prepared a club policy handout to firmly ask members to not ride in the rough past the cart path markers. Essentially, he told them that if the wanted to violated the clubs rule, they should stay in the fairway.

Those of us who have played on many courses have encountered courses where the entry and exit points to the fairway are restricted and players are instructed to stay in the fairway except at the entry and exit points.

That is true on many courses, even some I've played in Florida. Innisbrook and PGA National do that all the time in order to allow the rough to grow for their PGA tournaments. But here in TV, just look at the hardpan, no grass "fairways", and probably it's a better idea to stay off them as much as possible

Touching a surface that an infected person contacted 9 hours earlier can also result in a positive test, which is even a briefer and more minimal contact, so what's your point? Surely you can't compare the risk of exposure to ONE person in an open air cart to 1,000 people packed into a closed auditorium. Or am I just being "selfish" and "foolish"????

Your choice not to play, how do I know you did just have someone from bike week at your house last night.

For all you golfing genius's, I live on Belle Glade. Just looked out and there are four carts in one foursome teeing off on a hole on Seminole. Guess someone read my suggestion.

I live on Evans Prairie and saw that a few times. But I still think 2 carts have to stay on the cart path/rough. (They didn't, of course, since once the ambassador is out of sight the mice will play)

Not a bad idea. May not be necessary but who knows. People don’t get how serious this is. The next two months are important. Every precaution should be taken even if they sound foolish to some. Look at our population. No one is going to like the precautions but let’s do our best without too much grumbling if you disagree. This kind of threat is new to all of us. We just don’t know What’s ahead except it spreads so easily.

Once again, for you who did not think my post of "four carts per foursome" was a good idea and even called it "ridiculous" please check the Villages News website and you will see that it has in fact been put into action for the time being. Thanks for you attention! You can request to ride alone and your request will be approved.

Check the other thread on this subject. Someone says for the time being, 4 carts allowed, even on the fairway.
