Senior Center and Adult Enrichment
Senior Golf Tournament
The City of Fridley host a Senior Golf League in the summer, at Brightwood Golf Course in New Brighton. League play usually begins in May. The league is structured to accommodate beginners and experienced players.
Given the current situation with COVID-19 and the susceptibility of seniors, we have made a decision regarding the City of Fridley’s Senior Golf League for 2020 season.
As of right now, we decided to postpone the Senior Golf League at Brightwood Hills Golf Course, in regards to the CDC’s statement about vulnerable communities. This was a hard call, we support your choice to get outside in the fresh air, get some exercise and enjoy the game you love. However, we cannot encourage you to gather in groups to play golf. This puts not only yours but others’ health at risk. Your health is paramount in this decision.
According to the Center for Disease Control “Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness”.
Furthermore, we do encourage exercise, which could include golf, while following social distancing guidelines and practice preventative hygiene measures to avoid exposure to COVID-19.
Moving forward, we hope to see you as soon as possible and hope that you are staying safe. For more information on how to prevent exposure and how to recognize signs and symptoms please visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
