Since last Friday, golf courses in Montgomery County and the entire of Pennsylvania are once again welcoming golfers, writes Frank Fitzpatrick for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

However, to address any lingering concerns over coronavirus, some changes have been made to the traditional golfing experience.

Currently, tee times should be made either online or over the phone, with intervals between groups set at a minimum of 15 minutes. Furthermore In Pennsylvania, groups are limited to four people and players should only arrive at the course just before their scheduled round.

Putting greens and other practice areas are still closed. Caddies are also prohibited, but golf carts are permitted on a one person-one cart basis. Meanwhile, golfers have to handle and load their own bags and equipment.

All course staff are also required to wear protective gloves and masks.

Social-distancing rules still apply, so golfers need to avoid handshakes and congregating in parking lots.

Meanwhile, to showcase the wealth of golfing opportunities Montgomery County has to offer, the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board has released a video titled “Montco Golf” to coincide with the reopening of local golf courses.
