With the slowly easing down of restrictions, no thanks to the still spreading of coronavirus, every place has its set of priorities and definition of essential. Florida has reopened professional wrestling; Georgia goes with bowling alleys; and for a classy place like San Diego, you know, and it’s got to be: golf!


San Diego Mayor, Kevin Faulconer, announced during a press conference that the city will now allow golf course to operate.

“Starting tommorow in San Diego golf courses can reopen, but before they do the operators must show that they can adhere to the county’s physical distancing standards,” said the Mayor.

On a related news, an additional guideline of checking body temperatures upon entering golf courses will be imposed.

This was announced during the San Diego County daily updating on the effect coronavirus pandemic, by Dr. Wilma Wooten, Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, and Chairman Greg Cox, according to a report of CBS8.

“No one with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher can enter. People cannot use golf carts or hang out in groups,” they added in a statement.

Wooten reminded the public to respect physical distancing and safety requirements, otherwise, the county will have to tighten restrictions again. 

Fletcher also mentioned they are having another amendment to the public health order aside from golf.


He said single households may participate in active sports activities at parks, like throwing a frisbee, but still not at beaches. This means people can only interact with the people they live with at the park. The parks must post guidelines.

Fletcher said boating is now allowed for single households, so only people that live together.

“No party boats,” Fletcher noted.
