It's a new world for the golf industry

With the issues surrounding Covid 19, a lot has changed in the golf industry. The course at which I teach, DragonRidge CC in Henderson, Nevada, is still open. The restrictions are members only, no outside play or charity tournaments for awhile. Golf cars will be one person only. No rake, tees or anything else that could be touched by multiple people, and don’t even think about touching the flagstick.

My business has changed quite a bit, although I am still able to teach. I have a large, active junior program with five group sessions per week and a fitness program also. There were five PGA Junior League teams with about 55 kids signed up in my own league. Both of those are on hold for now. Hopefully we will be able to start those activities in the next month or so. Most likely with social distancing in place.

I am a complete hopeless optimist and would love to think that some activities could start back up in 30 to 60 days.

Until then, disinfecting everything frequently, washing hands between customers and social distancing are a new way of life.

Stay safe everyone,
Mike Davis
