All public and private golf courses in Riverside County were ordered closed yesterday as part of the county’s response to the spread of coronavirus.

“There was some confusion over the closure of golf courses, and we believe this order makes it perfectly clear that golf courses are not an essential business and people must stop gathering on courses,” Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said. “The governor’s stay-at-home order means exactly that. Unless you’re the gardener, stay off the greens.”

Following the governor’s stay-at-home executive order early last month, Riverside County issued guidance that public and private golf courses should be closed. This new order is one of several issued by Kaiser during the pandemic to slow the spread and flatten the curve.

“Clearly and disappointingly, golf courses remained opened and put many people at risk,” Kaiser said. “That’s why it has come to this.”
