Sign the Petition to open Golf ATX courses

Screen Shot 2020-08-01 at 10.01.48 AMhttp://chng.it/f8sB8RZ2d7

This Petition is requesting the City of Austin open the City golf courses.  Studies show that being outside can provide an emotional boost to help people feel less stress as well as  provides a means of  exercise for their physical and mental health.

In the current situation with the courses closed,  the other area golf courses that are open have been overwhelmed with business.  We also need the City of Austin courses to open as they provide Austin residents with golf at a reasonable cost.

The CoA recently opened the GreenBelt with reservations only.  The CoA Golf Courses should be open with reservations only…no walk ons.  During the time that the CoA courses were open during the pandemic the staff did a great job of creating guidelines and rules that protected both the staff and customers.

Rudy’s I-35 Cup update

Due to Conorvirus and the uncertainty of what the falls months will bring it has been decided that the 2020 Rudy’s I-35 Cup will be cancelled.  This event has been a big fundraiser for both Austin and San Antonio as well as building camaraderie between both cities / golf comunities so we have every intention to holding the event in 2021.
