allied golf organizations of new england/northeast serve as a resource during COVID-19 pandemic

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MARCH 19, 2020

Leadership from the New England/Northeast golf organizations and associations, convened via conference call this week to discuss the current global pandemic that is COVID-19 and the effects it is having on the golf industry. These are unprecedented and extremely tough times for golf, but these organizations are united in making sure golf clubs and golfers take the appropriate steps to minimize the risk of infection from the COVID-19 virus.

“Given this unique and fluid time we’re in, we felt as though it was important for all of us to come together for the greater good of the golf community in the Northeast”, said Jesse Menachem, Executive Director/CEO of Mass Golf.  “Each state will continue to be guided by their local governments, but as a whole, we agreed that we can best serve the community at large as a resource for those golf courses and facilities as well as individual golfers.”

From those conversations, the web page massgolf.org/covid19 was created as a collective resource for the public to make informed decisions and be guided by to individuals who may be able to answer their questions during this time of uncertainty.

“The health, safety and well-being of everyone is of paramount importance right now, and being unified in that regard will benefit and protect the golf community going forward,” Menachem said.

Should you have any questions, please reach out to the appropriate contact on the COVID-19 Resource website.

We hope that everyone will follow recommendations published by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local health authorities to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
