The Michigan Golf Alliance confirmed with the Office of the Governor that Executive Orders 2020-91 and 2020-92 apply to golf operations in Regions 6 and 8 as follows:

  • Restaurants/grill rooms are allowed to be open at golf courses up to a max of 50% capacity as stated in 2020-91, Section 8.
  • Food and beverage, including alcohol, can also be sold for consumption on the golf course.
  • Golf Shops can be open for retail as long as they monitor and limit capacity as stated in 2020-91, Section 6.
  • Two riders are allowed in a golf cart.

The partial reopening will take effect on Friday, May 22, at 12:01am.
Cities, villages, and townships may choose to take a more cautious course if they wish: the order gives them the authority to limit the operation of restaurants or bars within their jurisdiction, including restricting such establishments to outdoor seating.

Please read through 2020-91 and 2020-92 for a full list of requirements and have a response and preparedness plan in place.
