GAP statement on New Jersey Governor’s Order

Posted in:


New Jersey Governor Murphy’ has issued a stay-at-home order for most New Jersey residents, ordering all New Jersey residents to remain in their homes, the closure of all “non-essential” businesses and the cancellation of all public gatherings, starting 9 p.m. Saturday evening, March 21, 2020.

**State of New Jersey official statement**

GAP has questions regarding the Governor’s stay-at -home order specifically as it relates to golf course operations, such as the ability to access and maintain the golf course itself.  We expect that our Member Clubs have similar questions and many more as well.  We will continue to seek guidance on these questions and plan to report any updates to you.

Please note we have created a section below that will allow Member Clubs to post their questions. We will attempt to find the answer to all questions, to the best of our ability. If there is a common theme, we will post a FAQ’s on that page.

GAP recognizes that impacts of the Coronavirus are changing rapidly and are likely to continue to change in the days, weeks and months ahead.  This is an emotionally draining time for many people, changing day-to-day life in unprecedented ways.  The CDC and other world health organizations have indicated that Coronavirus is continuing to spread and that the situation will get worse before it gets better. 

Most importantly, GAP urges everyone to take appropriate precautions and to protect themselves at all times.

We wish everyone well and look forward to resuming golf activities in the future.
