United States Map

Guidelines vary and information is fluid. Here's the latest state-by-state rundown.

Golf courses around the U.S. are in varying states of flux as the Coronavirus continues to spread. Many states have issued stay-at-home orders and, in the process, directed golf courses to suspend play and operations. Others have no golfers, but remain open for maintenance. Other states have left golf-related decisions up to the cities and counties. It’s a fluid situation. Here’s a full rundown of the latest state-by-state guidelines, as compiled by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America with additional data from Golf Now. This article will be updated.
