On behalf of the Alliance of Massachusetts Golf Organizations (AMGO), our respective staffs and volunteer leaders, we’d like to thank you for your continued partnership and cooperation over the last 12 months. Since our year-end communication, AMGO representatives have been busy preparing for the 2021 active golf season and we are well-equipped to continue the momentum our industry enjoyed last year.
With weather patterns and temperatures changing quickly, we wanted to share several updates as facilities and golfers prepare for season-start. We know how important clear and effective communications are and we will do all that we can to provide the necessary and timely information and guidelines from the Governor’s Administration.
Our Alliance has remained focused on keeping the current golf guidelines in place and improving certain regulations as the state’s public health metrics continue to trend in a positive direction. Our honest, transparent and respectful approach with Governor Baker’s team will remain as we represent the industry. With that, we encourage you to review our summary of Frequently Asked Golf Facility Guideline Questions below. These will be important as you plan for daily play, events/tournaments, etc. Please note, guidelines can and will change, so these are not set in stone.
In closing, we appreciate everyone’s sincere interest and cooperation in keeping all golfers and employees safe throughout the Commonwealth. Please continue to follow the State’s Golf Facility Guidelines and be sure to reach out to AMGO representatives with any questions.
Here’s to a safe and healthy 2021, with weather to support another fantastic golf season!
