ALBANY - Like golf courses in several parts of New York State, the St. Lawrence State Park Course has expanded its limited operations in the face of the COVID-19 Pandemic. State courses can now allow for single-person carts and limited operations for food and retail.
On Saturday the Empire State Development issued the latest change in the state's directives for golf courses. After allowing golf only to walkers, the state allowed carts for anyone with a disabled persons parking permits.
As of Saturday cart use is now limited to one player or two people to a cart for people who have been quarantining together.
Players are urged to follow social distancing and apply the strongest disinfecting and cleaning measures as possible. Courses are required to sanitize carts between uses and players are asked to protect themselves with sanitizing and the use of masks as much as possible and around the clubhouse and parking areas.
The new directives allow lessons and driving ranges to be opened on courses, as well as locker rooms, but non-essential personnel are still not permitted at clubs. Golf course bathrooms and shelters have been ordered to remain closed.
At the St. Lawrence State Park an Unlimited Cart Card is available to members for $350 per person for the season. Card holders are allowed to call and reserve a cart.
