Someone who is hoping golf courses in Ontario open soon is Smiths Falls native Brooke Henderson.

The 10-time LPGA Champion told the Globe and Mail she thinks golf can be played safely if physical distancing is practiced.

She told the paper she thinks golf can be done safely if all protocols around the clubhouse and with groupings are followed.

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott hinted on Monday that limits on outdoor recreation could be lifted before the province’s stay-at-home order expires on June 2, depending on pandemic indicators.

Henderson, who is ranked No. 5 in the world, said the LPGA is an example of how golf can be played safely. She says they have been able to play pretty consistently week in and week out with low cases and low transmission.  

She added, “I think it is a great way for people to get outdoors and still be able to socialize a little bit, so hopefully courses will open up in the near future.”
