John Syracuse, Vice Chairman of the Niagara County Legislature told News 4 (WIVB-TV)

“We have sought guidance from the Niagara County Department of Health and we are confident we are striking the right balance between the need to continue to be vigilant in our COVID-19 fight and the desire for some measure of opening things up. If we find a disregard for social distancing protocols in these venues, we will adapt our policy accordingly,”

The following steps will be taken at the Niagra County Golf Course to ensure social distancing :

  • Tee times are available by appointment only. Fewer tee times are allowed per hour.
  • Golf carts are not available at this time.
  • Pro Shop remains closed.

“Clearly, the vast majority of the decision-making on what is open and what is closed rests with Governor Cuomo,” said Syracuse. “But now that we have adjusted to this situation over the last month, we are looking for new ways to provide services to our residents without compromising anyone’s safety.”
