The Missouri Golf Association has been carefully monitoring all information available regarding Coronavirus COVID-19 and we are committed first and foremost to minimizing risk of exposure and transmission of this virus to our members. As of today, we have not made any decisions to alter the balance of our tournament schedule. We will continue to monitor announcements and developments and follow recommended guidelines provided by local, state and national health authorities.
We encourage all member clubs, members and players to do the same and to follow sound, basic hygiene including:
· Frequent washing of hands (for at least 20 seconds)
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
· Cover your mouth when sneezing/coughing
· Maximize your space between each other
· Refrain from hand-shakes
We urge our clubs to use disinfecting wipes to clean the surfaces of frequent contact points such as cart steering wheels, door knobs, drinking fountains, bar tops and rails, etc.
If you have registered for an event, but are not feeling up to par, please withdraw from the event and we will refund your registration fee in full without any handling fee. Ultimately, you will always be the best judge of your own health and well-being, but please also consider the impact to others.
We will continue to keep our clubs, members and players updated via our website and/or email. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the MGA at 573-636-8994 or email. email@example.com
