I am being told masks are required on the course in riverside and san Bernardino courses. I am also being told they are not required on the course in ventura, LA, and OC courses. How many can confirm this please. Thanks.

I was not required to wear a mask at Tierra Rejada or La Purisima.

Wearing a mask will sometimes limit your oxygen intake if left on too long. See the article of the driver in NJ who passed out and crashed, after having the mask on for too long, during a long drive. Not saying a mask is a bad thing. But they seem awkward depending upon how/why/when they are being used?

I read a post on here that seems to be to me a good/best solution IMO?

The post said use a bandana. I like that because you can raise and lower it as needed. I am playing this week and will try that and see how it goes.

I also saw that Simi Hills was requiring masks.

And I am not aware that any LA City/County courses have been give the go ahead to open.

I live in riverside and have to wear a mask, certainly don't want to or think i should. I currently have a golf "cool" towel that I tie in the back and acts like a Bandana, ok in all stores, slip it up 20 feet from the store door and slip it down 20 feet outside the door, do not wear it in the parking lot by myself, but this is very hot. I ordered some Bandana on ebay and they will be here Thursday hoping they are cooler, but still hoping i can slip it down when walking "by myself " in the fairway or rough, then slip it up if required.

From what I have read in recent course reviews, Ventura is not requiring masks. I live in Orange County and I am still not clear as to masks being mandatory. I did receive an email from Mile Square under the heading, "Before Your Round." It states, "Be sure to bring a mask or face covering and wear it at all times when interacting with our staff and other guests." Under the heading "On The Course" it did not mention wearing a mask. Personally, I don't want to wear a mask, but considering coughing and sneezing particles can travel farther than six feet on outside breezes, I will wear a mask.

Haha! Little tight maybe? Why wear a mask inside your car? Who are you interacting with?

Played Friday and today in Ventura County. No masks required. I wore mine when I went in to pay but did not wear it afterwards. I did not see a single player wearing a mask at either course.

I was told and it also states that if mask not on when golfing the marshal will ask you to leave the course. This was by Eagle Glen and Greenriver and Dos Lagos so I assume this is for all Riverside courses.

I hear you Kevin. The only purpose of a mask is to help mitigate the risk to others around you. It doesn't protect the wearer. I guess this driver didn't want to infect his leather seats!

Personally, I won't wear a mask while on the golf course. So I'd have to pass on any course that required it. I would, however, wear one when interacting with golf course staff or in closer contact with others.

I totally agree, but I wear around others for respect of them, not required for me.

The government is requiring certain people to wear masks while doing certain tasks. Why is this? Government officials are usually full of b.s. and react to popular opinion or do what they think is politically correct.

I found this little tidbit from the WHO online regarding masks:

Mask and glove usage
Healthy individuals only need to wear a mask if taking care of a sick person.
Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
Masks are effective when used in combination with frequent hand cleaning.
Do not touch the mask while wearing it. Clean hands if you touch the mask.
Learn how to properly put on, remove and dispose of masks. Clean hands after disposing of the mask.
Do not reuse single-use masks.
Regularly washing bare hands is more effective against catching COVID-19 than wearing rubber gloves.
The COVID-19 virus can still be picked up on rubber gloves and transmitted by touching your face.


Simply requiring use of a mask does nothing if it's not being done properly and in the appropriate setting.

IMO, it's all for show!
