A movement is afoot in Ontario that calls on the Ford government to rescind its closure of golf courses. The premier announced Friday that golf courses were being lumped into a number of outdoor recreational spaces that would have to close until at least May 20. This isn’t sitting well with the golf industry, which reiterates that golf is perhaps the safest outdoor activity that can be pursued during the COVID-19 pandemic. It adds that fully booked tee times on the weekend is a massive loss of revenue that will lead to staff layoffs.
