Keep it 6' and don't touch anyone's discs.

To think this really is about common sense in the current climate: don't touch anyone else's disc and keep plenty of space between people. Given the size of a course, there's no reason to come within 10 ft of anyone. Clear the basket after you hole out.

If there's a decent restroom available, washing your hands before you grab the wheel makes sense.

I've always kept a bottle of rubbing alcohol in my car with some band aids and paper towels. I've already used it several times over the past week or so to disinfect my hands before getting in my car after playing. Probably don't really need to, but it's already in my driver's side door compartment staring at me when I open the door... I'd feel stupid not using it at this point.

It's all about minimizing exposure: yours and everyone else's.

I think Bogey is right on....common sense. Playing disc golf is riskier than sheltering in place. Though, I don't think the risk is very large. Just think about where others may touch. Don't check the mailbox on hole one for scorecards. Don't open the pencil box on the kiosk. Maybe avoid grabbing the top of the basket when retrieving your putter. Obviously, keep at least six feet between players, don't touch other's discs. Don't share anything. If it ain't yours, keep your hands off of it.

I don't think I would be using any public restrooms. The door handle alone is an issue, IMO. I don't believe that any of our park systems here have any public facilities open, at this point.

Great idea to keep some rubbing alcohol in the car. Part of my usual disc golf kit includes some dish washing liquid and disposable towels for poison ivy mitigation, Bogey has prompted me to using it, post rounds.

I have to get out of the freaking house. Disc golf on Sat and Sun will hopefully sate the need.

I feel Im at way greater risk going to the grocery store than I am out in the open enjoying fresh air and a round of disc golf.
Be safe and educate yourself.

My wife has asthma. Shes not leaving the house for the foreseeable future, were having all groceries delivered and all my rounds will be solo. I want no part of this thing.
The virus can survive on surfaces for a while apparently. You might want to wipe down the groceries before putting them away.

Is there a citation for this? Because I have a SWEET ultraviolet flashlight for glow, and if that is satisfactory disinfectant that'll save me a lot of soap/water/maybe hand dryness.

I heard Dustin Keegan is staunchly opposed to use of UV lights, for what it's worth
