Last week’s question: During the Spring of 2020, Maine was in the midst of COVID hysteria. Gov. Mills ordered most business, including golf courses, closed. When Gov. Mills finally allowed golf courses to reopen, she imposed special rules. Which of these special golf rules did I make-up?Of course, the answer is “G” – Not a joke! A. Only one person allowed in a golf cart.
B. All ball washers must be removed from the course.
C. On the greens, cups must be filled to within one inch of the top of the hole.
D. Golfers must remain in their vehicles until 10 minutes before tee time.
E. All trash cans must be removed from the course.
F. Golfers are only allowed to play golf within their county they live.
G. None are made up. This is the way golf was played during 2020.
