While golf courses remain open under current public health orders in Manitoba, the province is clarifying the rules around riding in golf carts.
Golf Manitoba says its been getting a number of questions about who can ride in carts and received confirmation from the province today that if you don’t live together, you can’t cart together unless there is a barrier in between.
“The Province of Manitoba has confirmed that within the current orders, all persons engaged in an outdoor sporting or recreational activity must maintain a separation of at least two metres from other participants,” said Golf Manitoba in a statement.
“This includes golf carts when used by patrons not from the same household.”
“If an appropriate banner is in place, such as a plastic shield between the driver and the passenger, two people from separate households can share a golf cart.”
Meanwhile, the city of Winnipeg said effective Monday, all league and tournament play at city courses has been suspended until further notice.
