GCSAA knows your lives and businesses are being affected by the global COVID-19 Pandemic. While there is no lack of general information about the virus and its widespread impact, we wanted to provide you with resources specific to golf and business operations to assist you in this challenging time. Plus, keep up with GCSAA's latest updates concerning the pandemic.


The spread of COVID-19 is having a tremendous impact on golf courses across the country. Courses are taking unique approaches to course setup and presentation to minimize the risk of spreading the virus, operating with limited staff, and facing resource impacts that are likely to get worse. The USGA Green Section would like to help all golf facilities manage the agronomic, labor and budgetary challenges caused by the virus. In addition to encouraging course superintendents, managers and owners to utilize the content on this resource page, we invite you to contact one of our USGA regional agronomists. They can offer customized advice and guidance for your course as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
