WHILE THE UK BATTLES COVID-19, the Old Course at St. Andrews remains open to golfers. It's a small slice of normalcy during these surreal days of a global pandemic and what might be the term of the year: "social distancing."
In these difficult times, there remains a soothing constant in the golf world: The Old Course at St. Andrews is open for play.
That doesn't mean everything is normal at the Home of Golf during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews sent an email to its membership on Saturday morning with the announcement that the club was immediately closing its dining room and drink service, while the locker room would remain open until Wednesday evening, after which it would be closed.
