Golfers Hit the Links in Pennsylvania
May 7, 2020
Golfers were permitted to hit the links in Pennsylvania on Friday May 1, as Gov. Tom Wolf said he would reopen golf courses, private campgrounds, marinas and guided fishing trips that day.

Due to COVID-19, residents must still practice social distancing and universal masking, and reopened businesses must follow guidance from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to operate safely, the administration cautioned.
Tee times at Iron Masters Country Club are adjusted at the course for every 15 minutes (instead of eight). Golf carts are limited to one person only. Immediate family members can use the same golf cart.
