COVID-19 Resources - MASSGOLF

covid-19 resources for GOLF COURSES/FACILITIES and individual golfers

Mass Golf and the Allied Golf Organizations of New England/Northeast are monitoring the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation very closely as the health, safety and well-being of our community is the priority. During extraordinary times, such as the current global pandemic, we all will be guided in decision making with the information provided by public health and government authorities.

As a resource for golf courses/facilities and individual golfers, Mass Golf in partnership with several other Golf Organizations from the Northeast have gathered pertinent information surrounding COVID-19 and what you may need to know in order to make informed decisions about your golf course/facility or that round of golf you are considering.






Please be sure to visit the following websites and monitor daily advisories from the CDC and the WHO.  The recommendations from these agencies should be used as the primary source of information when updating protocols.

CDC – Website for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
