When the course did open for play, each golfer had to have a tee time booked, ride alone on his or her cart and golfers were started 20 minutes apart. On the green the cups had a sponge ring around the pin so no ball could drop into the hole, this safety measure ensured that no one had to disinfect the pins in between the player. The next step on the greens saw the cups put in upside down and the sponge ring was removed, this allowed the ball to fall partway into the hole but not enough to warrant touching the pin, this satisfied the golfers.
