The March issue of The Golf Club has been available at almost 70 locations around the Upstate.
We encourage you to get out and play when possible and pick up a hard copy of the paper.

The reports we have received have been encouraging about the measures clubs and courses are taking to help protect golfers. The response they have received from members and guests have been to continue to play.
Most clubs and courses have increased their sanitization of common areas with special attention to golf carts.
In fact most courses are putting golfers in their own cart to play.
They are encouraging golfers to leave the flag stick in, not rake bunkers and use bottled water rather than the water coolers that may be on the course.
Clubs that offer food service have eliminated buffets, but continue to offer a short order menu.
PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan has announced that several more events have been cancelled and unfortunately that includes the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head.
When Monahan made his announcement cancelling the TPC, he made a request that all golfers should consider.
“Golf is the greatest game on the planet. As we go through this uncertain time we hope everybody gets an opportunity to get out, play golf, get outside, support their local PGA Professional and support the game. I want to make sure we are inspired to use this game to get through a challenging time,” he said.
After visiting with many of the courses and advertisers who help make The Golf Club possible we were encouraged to keep to our usual publication schedule.
While there may not be events to cover there are always good stories, tips and information that we can share with golfers.
The April issue of The Golf Club will be available for pick up during the first week in April. We hope you get a chance to get out and play, pick up the March issue or download it here, and we continue to hope golf can provide a few hours of normalcy during a difficult time.
