Back2Golf is an initiative, formed by the governing bodies of golf, that lays out a step by step guide on returning to golf in a safe manner. The objective of Back2Golf is to work as Allied Golf Organizations in building a comprehensive and medically approved plan that allows golf to be played as a social distancing compatible recreational activity in the United States as we begin recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan has been developed to help open golf where it is currently closed and keep golf open responsibly.
