I suspect that was the point.

Walking fine, but walking and playing golf is not efficient nor is it acceptable in Victoria.
Golf is not exercise. The walking whilst playing golf is the exercise. Beats me why this is so difficult to understand.

You do seem to have some difficulty with that.

I don't understand why you can still walk into KFC or Maccas? Not essential. Again something that would create more infections than golf in twos or ones.

I would also like to see some National consistency. Golf in Albury but not Wodonga!

 

Pretty simple Wodonga is in the nanny state, Albury isn't

The border problem became apparent because the members at Thurgoona that lived in Victoria were travelling backwards and forwards between states just to play golf ( and in other areas along the Murray ) 

They can't close the border crossing because the Albury base hospital has the ICU infrastructure to cope with C19, Wodonga does not.

The Albury hospital is a shared facility funded by and run for both NSW and the Nanny State.  Ironically despite being over the border its actually run by the Nanny State.

Thoroughly pleasant 18 holes.  I especially like the raised hole cups, must make that a rule as it is so much more relaxing

 

Ripped around in 3 hours and no viruses as yet.  Bit annoyed I couldn't have a beer, but splitting hairs now

 

In terms of risk, a quick round in two balls is way down there, but I do see the problem for public courses.

 

Private tracks have much greater  control.  Open the gate, drive in, walk to the tee at the allotted time and away - no need to pay fees or any of that nonsense.  So it is  possible to play the entire round without actually touching anything or being within 3m of another human.

If you can still walk into a fast food restaurant and order and pay for food why couldn't you walk into a pro shop and pay a green fee? 

 

I promise I won't lick my balls!

Is your quote re the " shut dow " in anyway related to the ASX or the Dow Jones ?

Hoping that it's not a cryptic clue, Vossy 

I'm slightly worried that the market will take another dow turn because of your faux par.  

Nice one Jon !.....may have been the case in yesteryear :)  Keep well

I took up golf two months ago. It was exactly what i needed after being forced into retirement from cricket due to injuries.

 

I just paid a years membership up front about a week before the closures in Victoria.

 

My logic is that I am not going to ask for a refund unless I become financially desperate.

 

I must confess it does frustrate me that bottle shops which are small, enclosed and sell unhealthy products are considered essential. Golf courses aren't essential I admit but they are certainly healthy and very safe compared to small enclosed spaces.

 

I can't see golf courses in Victoria staying closed for six months. Eventually it will dawn on the Government that although not essential they are safe. 

 

Does anyone else have a view on this?

I couldn't agree more. Happy to even play on my own or in 2's. It's seriously safer than seeing hundreds of people on walking paths every day.

The Kiwis are finally letting the staff do some maintenance on the courses so it appears to me the "scorched earth" is being or about to be wound back. 

 

I reckon by end of April, most of Vic will be back playing golf under the same rules as everywhere else and if you want to go for a swim you will be permitted.

I assume you don't mean swimming on the golf course (unless you are very short of golf balls) Ha Ha..

I remember being chest deep in dams looking for golf balls and hoping to find B51s and Dunlop 65s but lots of times finding eels and leeches.

 

Fast forward 40 odd years, we had to get someone in to get rid of the balls in our waterways because they were apparently "unsightly" at low tide.

I doubt it we're the Nanny State.
