The following is from County Executive George Latimer:

Westchester County, in accordance with a newly issued New York State policy, will be closing public golf courses on Saturday, April 11. The courses will remain closed until New York State authorizes re-opening.

The properties will not be open to walking or hiking. To ensure compliance, barriers will be placed at the entrance to the courses. The courses will continue to be patrolled by Parks staff and County Police.

From Halston Media: To our Beloved Community: During this crisis, we can’t continue to operate entirely as we have been doing when we are only earning a fraction of our previous advertising revenue and still have to pay 100 percent of our payroll.
