As the number of active COVID-19 cases in Alberta continues to put pressure on the province’s health care system, the government has imposed a number of new restrictions – and golf is one of those feeling the impact. Golfers playing both public and private courses can now play only with members of the same household. If they live alone, they are entitled to play with two other close contacts. The new regulations take effect on Monday.

    This is totally ridiculous – you are closer to the checkout girl or to someone walking down the street than you are to another golfer!!!!

  2. John says:

    You’re allowed to gather with five people outdoors but you can’t have four people playing golf! Doesn’t make sense

  3. Lori says:

    This is the most ridiculous thing ever…Not ONE case ever at a golf course. Can’t you see this is all about the government, not your health. You are so more likely to die of suicide before Covid if this keeps up…

    I’m very disappointed in both Jason Kenney and Deena Hinshaw for implementing stricter guidelines for groups of 4 golfers when outdoor gatherings of 5 people are allowed. Just one more contradiction by two people who can’t govern their own lives let alone the betterment of the residents of AB. The effects of the harm done to our youth by shutting down schools and sports is evident in every community and will have lasting impacts. Thoroughly disgusted and ashamed to be an Albertan and a Canadian because we as an electorate have allowed these morons to make these crucial decisions for us without anyone’s input.

    I am also disgusted to be a Canadian and a BCer right now. Our leadership federally and in most provinces is pathetic and only concerned about our failing health care system and lack of hospitals and doctors. People do not matter especially the children and the mentally challenged. It is time to get vaccines to everyone and open up the country and the border ..
