BROKEN BOW–On April 26 members and nonmembers of the Broken Bow Golf Club (BBGC) hit the links but without their clubs. The golf cart corona cruise night was held last Sunday to have some fun on the course while following the BBGC’s COVID-19 policies.
Patrons had the chance to participate in a poker run and enjoy carry-out Bogey Burgers and fries. Board member Todd Reynolds said the club saw a great turnout, rented out all of the carts, and even ran out of hamburger buns at one point.
“We’ve been under lock down like everybody else and everybody just kind of wanted to get out,” Reynolds said. “April was a tough month for everybody so we’re glad to see it’s [restrictions] kind of getting loosened up.”
Cruise night participants enjoyed driving around the course on a beautiful evening and stopped at various holes to receive their cards as part of the poker run. Bobbi Baum was named winner of the poker run with four queens for the best hand and she won half the pot.
Patrons stuck to social distancing guidelines by staying in their carts after checking in at the clubhouse or ordering food and drinks.
“We’re obviously wiping down everything, same way with the rental carts. We wipe them down after every use. We’ve been restricting the number of people in the clubhouse. We’ve been playing by the rules and trying to do what we can. You know, golf is one of the few things you can do with these restrictions so it’s been nice to see people out and we’ve had some great weather in the past week,” Reynolds said.
Reynolds added that golf is an activity that usually keeps people distanced no matter what! “If I golf with certain people I’m in the rough and they’re in the fairway so we’re a long ways away!”
