Golf courses have done everything they can to ensure safety

The Ontario government’s decision to shut down golf courses, in its attempt to curtail the spread of COVID-19, is about the same as “killing a fly with a hammer,” the owner-operator of the Quinte Hills Golf Course in Frankford, Ont. says. Larry Gatien, as well as Bill Kerr, head golf professional at Thurlow’s Black Bear Ridge Golf Course, say golf courses have done everything in their power to ensure golfers remain safe while playing the game, noting there have been no COVID cases reported at Canadian golf courses in both 2020 and 2021.
