5 tips for golfing during COVID-19

Sanitization is the first thing that you need to keep in mind while playing golf during COVID-19.
Sanitize everything near you including all the clubs, golf bags, and golf balls that you need to use while playing golf.
If you are thinking about going to the course with your cart, make sure the sits of your cart are also sanitized.
Remember, sanitization is the only way of prevention because no other treatment method has yet been established.
Use a mild sanitizer and sanitize everything including your hand that you will come in contact while playing golf.
The Corona Virus has a crown shape layer which is the most toxic part.
A good sanitization helps to remove that crown part so that the virus can’t affect the sensitive part of our body.
That is why it mandatory for you to sanitize everything that you need to use while playing golf.

Any contact with a COVID-19 patient can spread the disease among other people.
That is why maintaining social distance is the most important thing you need to follow if you want to be safe during this pandemic situation.

That is why you never can say whether a person is COVID affected or not.
Better you keep the social distance for your own protection.
As you never can say-whether the friend you are playing with is asymptomatic or not.
Stay at least 3 to 6 feet away from any person. This will greatly help you to be safe during this pandemic situation.
You need to maintain social distance while playing golf and also when you will be outside at your home.

Another safety measure that the golf authority should take is allocating one cart per golfer.
Golf carts can be another issue for spreading the disease.
That is why many golfers should not use a cart.
It can increase the spreading rate dramatically.
Even in some cases, it is better to avoid the golf cart.
If you can manage to walk through the course you should walk instead of using a cart.
If you own a golf cart, that’s better. Use your property with your own risk.
But if you are thinking about hiring a cart for roaming around the course, be very serious.
Maybe it will lead you to a situation that you would never like to see in your life.
4. Using a mask

It’s your decision whether you will use a mask or remain in the 95% danger zone.
