Governor Tim Walz has announced he will allow golf courses across the state to open. Golf courses can open as of 5am tomorrow, April 18th.

The Governor’s new executive order allows residents to participate in a range of activities, including golfing, fishing, boating, hiking, and hunting, as long as the new outdoor guidelines are followed. The guidelines include maintaining the 6-foot social distancing, as well as avoiding crowded areas and staying close to home.

This means facilities like bait shops, shooting ranges, game farms, parks and trails, marina services, dock installation, and boat and off-road vehicle sales by appointment only. All can open as of 5:00 Saturday morning.
