Philadelphia Golf: Coronavirus Updates

Over the last week there have been a lot of visitors to the website as a result of searching for things like “golf course closed” in Google. Many people have landed on our “Here today, gone tomorrow” post about permanently closed courses from the fall. Since that’s not quite the information most people are looking for, we wanted to have a post dedicated to golf course status in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis. It will be updated periodically as things change.

Golf Course Status Summary by Area (as of 4/4/20)

Pennsylvania – Per the state order from Governor Wolf, all non-life-sustaining businesses to close their physical locations on 3/19. To be determined when that will be lifted.

South Jersey – Golf courses are all closed per state order as of 3/31.

Delaware – Some courses are open but only Delaware residents are allowed.

Best Practices If You Play

Golf is fortunately a sport that can be played while “social distancing” since the largest gathering is typically a foursome. There are still some important reminders to take into account while you play. Some are obvious, but a few are less so.

  • If you’re sick, stay home
  • Wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer frequently
  • Maintain a 6-foot “social distance” gap, especially on the tee boxes
  • Don’t shake hands, fist pump, etc.
  • Leave the flag in and carefully retrieve your ball
  • Don’t handle other players’ clubs or ball
  • Walk if possible (click here for other ideas to inject fun into your round)
