The chance to tee off is an opportunity golfers are grateful for after being stuck away from the greens due to the coronavirus. That excitement resulted in a busy first week for those working at the Anchorage Golf Course.

"We haven’t let anybody in the clubhouse, and every transaction is with a phone call," said Anchorage Golf Course general manager Rich Sayers. "So that’s been interesting phones been ringing off the hook."

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the course is requiring that golfers maintain social distancing and have only one golfer to a cart at all times unless you live in the same household. The flagstick must remain in the hole at all times.
