On behalf of everyone at Morton Golf, we want to express our deepest sympathy for those afflicted by COVID-19.

With the recent shelter in place order being announced for Sacramento County, it now requires citizens to find a safe location and to limit contact with other people as much as possible to help quell the spread of COVID-19.

People need a healthy activity to enjoy during the long sessions staying in their homes. Walking the dog, hiking, bike riding, and playing golf are perfect activities to reduce stress in a safe way during the COVID-19 crisis with the proper precautions.

Additional safety procedures and protocols that we have implemented or are working towards at the City of Sacramento golf courses include:

  • Moving to a single-rider cart system where each player in a group has their own power cart – 2 riders per cart are allowed if the riders are in the same householdUpdated 5/20/20
  • Offering hand sanitizers to all customers and staff and encouraging everyone to use them
  • Wiping down work areas
  • Staff using gloves
  • Weekly spraying from Environ-Master to help eliminate germs that will last for 7 to 9 days, including COVID-19
  • Asking staff to be at least 6 feet apart from customers and each other
  • Sanitizing the golf carts regularly 
  • Putting the cups on the course in upside down so that the ball will not disappear below the edge of the cup and can be retrieved without touching the flagstick.
  • Ball washers are covered and not able to be used
  • Bunker rakes have been removed from the golf course
  • On the driving range, each hitting station is at least 6 feet apart to provide proper social distancing
  • No dressing rooms available
  • No cash payments accepted

Is it safe to play golf during this time? Golfworld recently published an article entitled, Can you play golf amid coronavirus concerns? With proper precautions, yes. According to Dr. Catherine Troisi, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, golf as it’s normally played—outdoors, with natural social-distancing built-in— “would be fairly safe.”

“Social distancing doesn’t mean you’re being a hermit,” Troisi said. “Relieving stress helps your immune system and we know that physical activity boosts your immune system, so for both mental and physical health, it’s good to get activity however you can get it without putting yourself at risk. So anything outside where you’re not putting yourself in close proximity to a lot of people can be good for you. Being in nature helps your mental health, as well.”

We want to thank those who are working the front lines to combat this illness – the doctors, nurses and the medical community that is risking their lives to protect others. We are inspired to see our people and communities come together. 

Stay up-to-date with the information provided by the CDC as we all work to flatten the curve.
