Golf courses added to New York State COVID-19 nonessential business list

Governor Cuomo has said this order closing nonessential business will remain in effect through at least April 29.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Revised orders from the governor's office Thursday morning have temporarily taken away one of the few quarantine respites for Western New Yorkers.

Under the revised executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, golf courses as of Thursday are now considered nonessential businesses.

Previous orders did not distinguish whether they were, so numerous courses had taken advantage of the unseasonable warmth to open while adhering to social distancing protocol.
