BAGUIO CITY — Golfers will need to wait a little longer before teeing off in Baguio City.

Three golf courses have announced temporary closure after some of their personnel and a guest tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The Pinewoods Golf and Country Club closed its courses after one of its guests who played over the weekend tested positive.

Baguio Country Club (BCC), meanwhile, advised its members of the course’s indefinite closure.

The BCC management announced that one of the club’s caddies made close contact to a person who recently tested positive for COVID-19 in their barangay.

“We assure everyone that contact tracing and proper health and safety protocols including disinfection and sanitation are already being implemented, as it is always our priority to protect our valued members, guests and employees,” the BCC announcement stated.

Camp John Hay shared that two of its caddies tested positive for COVID-19.

“Camp John Hay Golf Club will be closed until further notice to conduct contact tracing, continued disinfecting, and other appropriate activities,” Camp John Hay announced to its members through Viber.
