"Your Ticket To Ohio Golf"

The beginnings of The Ohio Golf Course Owners Association (OGCOA) can be traced back to the early 1960's, when golf course owners & operators began to discover the value of common industry networking. They started meeting monthly to exchange ideas, recap successes, and participate in a think-tank environment on how to best promote golf in the great state of Ohio. Thus, the foundation of the OGCOA had begun, evolving into what we call "The Buckeye Golf Association" today.

    The Director of the Ohio Department of Health predicts that over 40% of the Ohio population will catch the virus. So, it is extremely important that you protect yourself, employees and customers. Golf courses that I’ve talked to are saying that the local health departments are requiring:

    • Social distancing requirements for everyone on the course, parking lots and clubhouse
    • Most are requiring driving ranges, putting greens etc. be closed
    • If the clubhouse is open, all food/beverage to be carry-out only
    • If carts are used, they must be single rider
    • Have hand sanitizers available
    • Put in writing the actions you are taking to prevent the spread of the virus
    • Have proper customer signage
    • This list is some of the most common requirements; your local health department may have other requirements.

    We are very lucky in Ohio to be open, many states (Michigan) are closed to golf. Therefore it is important that you pay close attention to everyone’s safety and that they are following the rules. We will beat this virus if we all work together.
