As we all start hitting the course under C19 requirements, what do you want to stay when we finalize what will be "normal?'

Some of the changes courses are making:
1. single riders or walking allowed
2. less interaction, particularly cart attendants
3. more space on the range
4. greater space on tee times
etc etc

Feel free to add ones you like to keep. For me:
1. Tee time spacing (my main course was spaced at 8 and 9 minutes, going to all 10 means the potential lost of 8 golfers per hour, so probably not going to happen but...)

2. Single carts (single carts zooming around SHOULD reduce pace of play, one course has changed it to 3.5 hours for a foursome, credit: KevBig), so does faster POP mean more rounds?

3. Walking. In Vegas, there's only 1 course (Las Vegas GC) which consistently allowed walking, but there's a good number that are easily to moderately walkable: Painted Desert, Desert Pines, LVGC, Aliante, Angel Park- Mountain, Palm Valley, Bali Hai, Paiute Sun and Snow, Wildhorse, LV National, Club at Sunrise, Stallion Mountain, Royal Links. I would absolutely buy a push cart to walk some of these courses, especially a twilight at reduced rates.

4. Alternative modes of transport. GolfBoard, this is your time to shine. If courses just charged $10 extra instead of $20, I'm on one every round.

Those are a few I like just after 1 round.

Why open another thread Rob? Your post would have fit in with the 'Courses Reopening...COVID-19 and Beyond' discussion.

You’re right. I opened it and started reading from the last up and thought it was just everyone posting about prices. I’ll cut and paste over to it
