When California’s golf courses close, golf course owners will be left with a $10 million hole

Golf course owners in California are set to be left out of pocket by the state’s $10-billion golf course closings, even though state officials say the closures will reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus.

Golf courses are the most common venue for people to play, with more than 4,000 in operation in California.

But as of Monday, more than 6,000 golf courses were either closed or slated to close.

The state has closed more than 300,000 public and private courses in recent years as it struggles with the coronaviruses pandemic, with most closures in California stemming from the virus.
