FINALLY … Great News for Golf in Ontario! Golf to Open Saturday May 22nd!
It has been a long and frustrating few weeks for everyone involved. Thank you to everyone for your patience and commitment to your facilities as we have dealt with the restrictions in the Stay-At-Home order. As you know, NGCOA Canada and Ontario’s We Are Golf partners, along with everyone in the industry, have been working very hard to reopen golf courses. A ton of work has been done by everyone, and our clear and consistent messaging, along with significant pressure in social media has helped ensure our message was clear that golf needed to be open.
As you just heard during Premier Ford’s press conference, golf courses and driving ranges in Ontario are permitted to open on Saturday May 22 at 12:01 am. As well, the Ontario Government has announced the framework that will be put in place for when the stay-at-home order is lifted on June 2. Below is the information available to us right now. Once the relevant details and framework is available from the Ontario Government, we will send another communication, but we wanted to send the great news to you as quickly as possible that golf is opening.
