After weeks of speculation and even some protest, Governor Baker has agreed to allow golf courses to reopen in Massachusetts according to MassLive.

The Springfield based news outlet said according to their sources golf courses will be able to open with specific regulations, which are expected to be released and detailed today.

The announcement was apparently sent out in an email yesterday which included a few details. Golf courses will not be allowed to let players use carts, the bathrooms or clubhouses.

The article states that two courses in the central Massachusetts area, Kettle Brook Golf Club in Paxton and Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston, are already taking tee times for Friday.

The announcement comes after Gov. Baker had ordered all non-essential business until May 18, including golf courses, making Massachusetts was one of just four states that had no plans in place to allow courses to reopen. Earlier this week the Governor announced he would ease some regulations on some retail businesses, such as florist shops, ahead of the Mother's Day holiday.
