The Michigan golf industry is grateful Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed the latest Executive Order rescinding her Safer at Home order and moving the entire state to phase four of the MI Safe Start Plan.
According to the order, beginning immediately, the Governor is allowing outside gatherings of up to 100 individuals, which is critical to the golf outing and league business in our industry. On Thursday (June 4), retail is allowed to open, which will allow our golfing community to enter pro shops for purchases without an appointment. On Monday (June 8), restaurants and snack bars at your favorite golf courses will be open to 50 percent capacity.
The Michigan Golf Course Association along with the Michigan Golf Alliance has worked diligently to see these allowances come to fruition.
“We have inched our way forward, working tirelessly to provide the experiences our customers rely on,” MGCA Executive Director Jada Paisley said. “We appreciate our relationship with the governor’s office and the ability to have our industry’s concerns heard. Golf in Michigan is an integral part of the seasonal business landscape. Our 800-plus golf courses are open. The grass is mowed and the beer is cold.”
