Closing golf courses makes no sense

Without being political, I'm still scratching my head as to why Wisconsin's governor closed down state golf courses?
I understand he may not believe a golf course is an "essential business," although I firmly believe all courses - public and private - should be open for several reasons.
Golf course operators have gone to great lengths to make sure social distance is paramount. They raised golf cups so there is no need to reach into cups to retrieve balls and no need to touch flagsticks. Rakes have been removed from bunkers. No power carts are allowed. No cash is exchanged. Payments are made through credit or debit cards only. Clubhouses are closed. No food or beverage is available.
Come on. What else?
Case in point.
The governor issued his COVID-19 Emergency Order No. 12 on March 24, with the "Safer At Home" order from 8 a.m., March 25, to 8 a.m., April 24, shutting down non-essential businesses, including golf courses. Nonetheless, Trempealeau Mountain Golf Club decided to open last Friday after receiving approval from the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Dept., and Trempealeau County Health Dept. I drove up to Trempealeau Mountain that afternoon. The course was busy with more than 120 players on the tee sheet. I observed golfers in FULL COMPLIANCE with the strict guidelines approved by the Trempealeau Sheriffs Dept., and Trempealeau Health Dept. Golfers were simply delighted to kick off another season.
Later that day, I was notified the course was forced to shut down. What a shame.
Trempealeau Mountain isn't the only local course anxious to open or re-open this spring. Operators at Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse, The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska and Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen are among many throughout the state anxious to hear their cash registers ring.
I haven't found a good reason why they can't hear that sound... sooner rather than later.
