Mesa County turns to Golf during pandemic

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Cooped-up Americans are finding ways to get fresh air while maintaining social distancing during this pandemic. One of the most popular outdoor activities during this time has been golfing.

Our local golf courses can attest to this– almost all Grand Valley courses we reached out to say they have absolutely seen an influx in golfers, both beginner, and returning players.

Redlands Mesa Golf Course says course use has increased by 30 to 40% since the pandemic began. But, there are some changes you need to be aware of when getting out on the course.

“The biggest change for golf is that you have to be a single rider taking a cart, which increases cart usage. This is unless you have been living together of course– then, you can use the same cart… but you can not bring riders out with you.” – Sandra Weckerly, Redlands Mesa Golf Course

This also means non-golfers can not go out on the course with you.

Additionally, since the course has been so busy, Redlands Mesa suggests calling to make an appointment a few days out from tee-time.
