Tee it up! Minot golf courses open for the season

April 17, 2020

Get Out & Play, Sports

Minot’s golf courses are gearing up for a great season. We encourage you to participate in outdoor activities like golf, as it is the perfect opportunity to socialize from a safe distance. Update your golf routine with these helpful tips and be sure to check out the courses listed below!

  • Skip the cart! Carrying your golf bag is a great workout and courses offer a wide variety of terrain. Golf carts are still available and clubs are making sure to sanitize after each use.
  • The courses provide generous elbow room to support the 6′ rule. If you’re golfing with your household members the space isn’t necessary but may still be a good idea.
  • Gloves and masks are the perfect accessory! Be cautious of what you touch and how you dispose of these items.
  • Practice your ‘golf clap’ and limit high 5’s, handshakes or fistbumps. Get creative with your celebrations on the course. May we suggest a dance break?!
  • Use this time to spring clean and dust off your golf clubs! Sanitize any equipment and clean out your bag, even if it hasn’t been used since last season.

Please note that upon opening there will be modifications that allow for social distancing and following ND Department of Health and CDC guidelines in reference to COVID-19. Contact the courses directly for information on how they are adapting to these changes.
