Greetings MN Metro Members,
Responding and adjusting to the current circumstances facing all of us, I want to share the impact to our Chapter's events and activities for the 2020 golf season along with how the MGA is responding to recent State of MN Governor's executive orders.
Tee Off & Sponsor Expo
our April 18 Tee Off physical event at Rush Creek is cancelled. This event has always been our opportunity to get together with old and new friends, sign up for leagues and visit with vendors who support our Chapter. The Board has decided to hold a virtual Tee Off on April 18. As of now, we are adopting to the current reality in order to get our season started.
We anticipate being able to start leagues and activities at some point in the late spring/early summer, so please renew your membership and be ready to go when we are allowed to increase activities.
Leagues & Clinics
The Chapter has setup leagues and courses. However, we are not certain when leagues will be able to start. We are monitoring and will provide updates at the virtual Tee Off (as best we can).
All clinics and events will be monitored and evaluated.
Minnesota Golf News
As of March 31, the current order from the Governor's office does not allow for golf courses to open their operations. The order for closure of public accommodations (E.O., 20-04) includes golf courses and currently ends at 5 p.m., Friday, May 1. The Minnesota Golf Association (MGA) is seeking clarification from the Governor's office to see if golf can be a permitted outdoor activity. Several other states allow golf courses to remain open with modifications for social distancing and other safety measures to protect staff and golfers. The MGA statement was sent to members and is available on their website.
Stay safe everyone!
Angie Christo, Minnesota Metro Chapter President
