State golf courses allowed to reopen next week

MADISON, Wis. — Starting April 24, golf courses in Wisconsin will be allowed to reopen under Gov. Tony Evers’ “Safer at Home” extension.

Area golf courses have already announced their plans to reopen, as Middleton’s Pleasant View Golf Course said in a news release that it will open April 24 at 8 a.m.

Despite this, the 2020 American Family Insurance Championship tournament has been canceled.

Both public and private golf courses can open under the following restrictions:

  • Golf carts are prohibited
  • Social distancing must be implemented at all times unless the players share the same home
  • All tee times and payments must be made ahead of time either online or over the phone
  • Clubhouses and pro shops must stay closed, but restaurants and bars can stay open under special restrictions
