Golf Courses in Massachusetts Allowed to Reopen, But Their Restaurants Must Remain Closed for Now

Governor Charlie Baker has brought a bit of good news to golfers in Massachusetts, though the good news does not extend to those who want a bite to eat before or after a round.

According to an article from NBC Boston, golf courses in the commonwealth are allowed to reopen as of yesterday, though this comes with many restrictions, one of which is the fact that restaurants and clubhouses must remain closed based on information given on a page within the Mass Golf website. The restrictions extend to golf facilities in general, which means that bar areas will also not be allowed to open, while golf shops and locker rooms will have to be shuttered as well.

Currently, restrictions on restaurants in Massachusetts remain in place through May 18, though it is possible that this date could change. As mentioned earlier, the order only allows dining and drinking spots to offer takeout/delivery, though it isn't yet known if golf course restaurants might be able to offer these options now that the courses are open; as soon as we find out additional information on this, we will post an update here.
