Default Any course bagging trips cancelled because of COVID-19?

As if we needed another COVID-19 thread ... but I think this is a little different, so here goes: Has anyone had to cancel a course bagging trip due to this virus? I had two that I can't make because other events were canceled:

Finally, after about 8 years of my brother, Dad and I trying to get tickets to the Masters, we finally got some for the Monday practice day. I planned on leaving the Saturday before (today actually) and playing 3 courses on the way to Columbia, then play golf with my brother on Sunday and squeeze in a course or two, Masters on Monday, then 4 or 5 courses on the way home on Tuesday. I even checked and saw that the Rock Hill schools were on spring break next week, so I could hit a couple of those small niners, right next to each other. Plan was to hit 8 or 9 new courses.

Then, the first week of May, my wife had a Conference to go to in Nashville, while she was in class in the mornings, I was going to get 7-8 courses bagged, my first ones in TN.

So, any trips you had planned, that are on hold, or canceled?

Spouse and I were headed to see the Nats vs. the Asterisks in baseball spring training. I had tickets to fly down early and spend a few days bagging from Tampa to Orlando to West Palm Beach.

The crown jewel of the trip was to be playing Gran Canyon on one of the practice days before Throw Down the Mountain. Pretty bummed about missing that.

Otherwise, every nice Spring weekend is a lost opportunity to bag more local courses. I particularly want to spend a day at Lake Marshall, but that isn't going to happen for a while.

We were planning a trip from Tacoma, WA to Salem, OR this summer. I was hoping to bag around Seattle, maybe sneak into BC and become an international disc golfer, and then hit Lucky Mud, Horning's Hideout, etc. on the way south.

But if missed bagging trips remain my worst problems I have limited grounds for complaint, you know?

This will be our 7th ballpark/DG roadie. Seen some great ball parks, and a lot of fun courses.
That Boston trip is supposed to be Labor Day weekend. Who knows what the situation will be or what Covid will end up doing to the baseball season?

Hell, I just hope we're looking at it in the rearview mirror by then.
I probably would have gone someplace Memorial Day weekend, as well. Can't imagine doing that now.

I had a concert next Friday postponed a month. I doubt it will even happen then. Was going to hit Yahara Hills in Madison if it was still in ( on a ball golf course) or Wilderness (one of the state's best) or both.

My other real course bagging isn't until June and July in North Dakota and Missouri. So we'll see I guess.

On the other side of the coin, at Stoney Hill we had one scheduled visitor cancel his travel plans, back in March.

Already had two trips affected.

Both places the state parks cancelled my reservations.

I had a 12 day trip planned - To Bowling Green Ams, to Glass Blown, and back home, with whatever I could fit in between. It was a business trip (Flymarts) I didn't even plan on playing the tournaments, but course bagging most definitely would have occurred every day.

Geez MD, with a 12 day trip thru those locations, you could have made a run at TVK!!
