Statement from CGSA Regarding Covid-19

March 26th, 2020

During this unprecedented time of world uncertainty and unknown caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the CGSA recognizes that the safety of our members, staff teams and their families are of utmost importance.

Please listen to and follow the advice of public health agencies and government officials with regards to preventing the spread of this virus. Be mindful of the effects of not following those directions.

The CGSA supports the temporary closure of golf courses to the public and/or golf club members. The CGSA will be working to support the vital property maintenance that is required for many golf courses to protect the golf courses greatest asset. This property management should be led by the Golf Course Superintendent in collaboration with ownership to determine the best needs of the property.

We know that times are uncertain and are confident that the game of golf will return. We are unsure when that will happen, but with the measures taken today by our industry, will help provide a better tomorrow. The CGSA Board and Staff stand ready to assist in these troubling times.

We encourage our members to reach out to family, colleagues and friends during this difficult time.
