UPDATE: Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says he will ARREST golf club managers who keep courses open — even private clubs. In a stunning rebuke, Bradshaw said that private country club can’t “opt out” of rules, or common sense. Read latest here.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has received a number of emails from readers concerned that golf courses — including Royal Palm Yach and Country Club, Delray Dunes, and several others continue to allow members to golf. This would seem to violate at the least the spirit — if not the law — imposed by Palm Beach County Executive Orders.
It is unclear why these clubs have decided to open. It is unclear why they believe members are immune from COVID-19. It is unclear, at this point, how many of the Palm Beach County deaths may have been the result of community spread at area country clubs.
If you see open country clubs — especially with older members — let us know. Send photos. If you see golfers sharing golf carts, let us know. To state the obvious: Coronavirus couldn’t care less about gates, about membership fees, about monthly food and beverage minimums. It’s expected to get worse in Palm Beach County over the next several weeks where social distancing will be more important than ever.
