ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Golf courses across the state are being shut down across the state after the list of non-essential businesses has been updated to include golf courses.
Previously, golf courses were not explicitly listed as a non-essential business and were given permission to remain open if they followed proper social distancing guidelines.
Golf courses will be allowed to have their maintenance staff work on the course to keep it in good condition for when they are able to open back up.
Currently, the NY PAUSE order is in place until April 29. Golfers will have to wait at least that long to get back out on the course.
