Recreational golfers can return to the favorite golf courses in the state of Washington in eight days.
Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington, on Monday announced a return of outdoor activities in the state on Tuesday, May 8.
It’s considered a partial resumption of activities but residents will be allowed to enjoy golf, fishing and hunting, as well as state parks for day trips.
Inslee said that the Golf Alliance of Washington has established several new rules, such as spaced out tee times and golfers can only go out as foursomes if all four live in the same house; otherwise, golfers will be sent out in twosomes. But the governor also said that he will pull back on outdoor activities once again should the state see any increase in coronavirus infections.
The current stay-at-home order, which went into place on March 23, bars public gatherings and events, team sports and camping.

Tagmarshal has tracked over 10 million rounds of golf. Real-time data collected by the system using small “tags” clipped onto golf bags, installed in buggies or offered on handheld or cart-installed proprietary 2Way screen devices, transmits information to on-course staff or personnel in the pro shop identifying groups that are out of position before issues arise. Player assistants can then support in a proactive, objective, non-confrontational manner resulting in improved player experience, consistent round times and player time freed up to enjoy on-site food and beverage items as well as opportunities for additional tee sheet capacity.
More than 25 of the top 100 US courses partner with Tagmarshal including over 250 leading courses globally.
