From the Michigan DNR. We have several State Parks and/or State Recreation Areas that have courses.

Closures and reduction in services include:
• Many park amenities have been closed in order to minimize the chance of people gathering in groups and/or maximize the environment for effective social distancing. Current closures include, but are not limited to, concessions, playgrounds and play equipment, viewing platforms, fishing piers, GaGa ball bits, volleyball and basketball courts, designated dog areas, disc golf courses, radio-controlled flying fields, pump tracks, and picnic tables and shelters.

Our private course is still open, under the condition that people observe social distancing. We've had 2 groups a day last weekend and this.....which is heavy traffic for us. It's very remote; other than the drive, it's about as safe as you can be.

Yesterday and today, players included 2 nurses and an EMT. Considering what else they're dealing with in their life, I almost wanted to give them a hug, just for what they do. But refrained. Glad we could give them a bit of respite, though.

Default Pueblo City Park

Pueblo City Park in Pueblo, Colorado is closed due to the pandemic. Changed course conditions to unplayable. Doesn’t mean you still can’t bag it early in the morning in an empty park!

Default Waller Mill Park

Waller Mill Park in Williamsburg, Va is closed. The city felt like they couldn't find a way to separate the staff with the patrons. Seems to be working very well at other local courses.

Please don't. Honestly, this just seems like a bad decision, with pretty foreseeable ramifications.

Showing disregard for the rules of the park, will always paint a bad picture of your local community of disc golf. Perhaps the reputation of our game. in general is positive in your area, but tarnishing it can only serve to put the course's future at risk.

I agree. I played Rock Ridge in Pittsboro yesterday and there were more players than I have ever seen there. Typically, there are 4 or 5 cars beside my group. Yesterday there were at least a dozen cars.

Drove past the course closest to my house yesterday and there were a ton of people playing. Guess with a lot of people not going to work they must have plenty of time for doing other things.

I did a little field work in a large field with no one around. We have permission from the powers that be to get outside and walk or jog or take the dog for a walk so I figure being outside in a wide open space with nobody around doesn’t put me or anybody else at risk but I’ll probably wait to hit the courses until this stuff blows over.

So check out this review for Scouting Woods:

https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...=6848&mode=rev

Not a lot of detail on this one.

And what are the current Course Conditions? Good - with no details.

Only if you get caught. This is a minor infraction compared to other rules I choose not to follow in life.

Plus they only posted course closure signs at hole 1. When I start on an odd ball hole and get to hole 1 and see that, I'm going to finish what I started.
