Golf and Fishing Open In Washington Tuesday
If you love to fish or golf you can get back to those activities on Tuesday. Restrictions are being lifted after more than a month lock down which forced golf courses and recreational fishing to close because of COVID-19 concerns.
It's been a long closure for many golf courses including Westwood West and Apple Tree Golf Courses two facilities that are widely popular with Yakima golfers. Both open Tuesday. Tee times are filling fast as you can imagine but both facilities say slots are still available this week and weekend. Private courses are opening in the valley as well on Tuesday.
The city of Yakima's Fisher Park Golf Course opens on Tuesday along with all the others.
The city of Yakima has some rules for the course. Pre-paid tee times must be reserved online at yakimaparks.com.
Golfers are encouraged to use hand sanitizer during play. The clubhouse will remain closed and all employees have been given masks.
All golfers must prepay their tee time online at https://yakimaparks.com/ and show paper or electronic receipt at check-in window. Pre-payment of tee times will be available beginning Monday night, May 4th. Rental clubs, pull carts and motorized golf carts are not available. And city officials say all players must not touch the flagstick and must leave the pin in place at all times.
If you love to fish recreational fishing with permit resumes Tuesday in Washington State. Many areas that were marked closed are open for anglers along with many state parks.
