Golf Truly Is a Safe Sport During Coronavirus
As Golf News Now reported just this past month, a full 94% of golf courses polled stated they have had zero cases of coronavirus among staff or guests.
This information is backed up by "contact capture" measures that require one person per group (whether or not they are playing) to provide full contact information in the event that contact tracing compliance becomes necessary at a later date.
Numbers and measures like these indicate that everything about the golf model works to support the safety of social distancing when in public areas.
From staggered tee times to restrictions on equipment use, increased sanitizing measures to enforced mask wearing, golf courses are taking the threat of COVID-19 very seriously.
At Picton Golf & Country Club, your safety is extremely important to us! Our safety protocols are in place to provide you with a safe and fun activity, without the unnecessary stress of health concerns!
Golf Is Replacing Traditional Youth Sports During Back-to-School
It is an understatement to say that this year's fall school semester has gotten off to a rocky start. One of the hardest hit areas has been extracurricular activities for students - particularly sports.
Educational information consistently shows that participation in the arts and sports can enhance learning and retention. With so many activities still off limits, this handily explains the noticeable surge of youth athletes' interest in golf as a social and competitive sport.
In fact, more than half a million junior golfers throughout North American have tried their hand at golf for the first time ever in 2020 thus far.
As Golf magazine recently reported, junior golf has provided worried parents with a welcome suite of fresh options when faced with their young athletes who are understandably upset that COVID-19 has put their favourite seasonal sports on hold.
Picton Golf & Country Club has had many young golfers register for memberships this past year! Are you looking for a fun summer activity for summer 2021? We’re open and taking members!
Golf Is Now More Affordable Than Ever
If all this wasn't already providing enough incentive for people to take up golfing together, there is one more perk that has put golf back on the radar - LOW GOLF RATES AND FEES.
This year, golf has emerged as one of a handful of recreational and competitive sports that continue to run in Ontario, and Canadians report that they are the better for it!
Golfing gives individuals a reason to get outside, go for a stroll, enjoy nature and challenge their abilities!
