Golf Cart Update for PA - Shared Residence
Governor Wolf provided an update on the use of golf carts through his FAQ document permitting individuals who share a residence to share a cart. Below is the update on golf.
27. May golf courses maintain in-person operations?
In counties designated as being in the Red Phase of Reopening, golf course operators may permit individuals access to the property so long as there are no gatherings of any kind and appropriate social distancing of six feet between individuals is strictly abided.
Golf carts may be utilized, but must be single occupant only, unless the occupants share a residence. No employees are allowed for purposes of facilitating play; however, operations such as landscape maintenance and other “services to building and dwellings” may continue as necessary to prevent deterioration of property condition. Restaurant activity is limited to take-out or delivery only and use of facilities for banquets or similar gatherings remains prohibited.
In counties that have been designated as being in the Yellow Phase of Reopening, golf courses may conduct in-person operations as long as they strictly adhere to the requirements of the Guidance for Businesses Permitted to Operate During the COVID-19 Disaster Emergency to Ensure the Safety and Health of Employees and the Public (including the requirement to telework where possible), available here.
As we understand future modification to golf allowances, we will communicate as soon as possible.
