Coulee Region golf courses allowing carts

At least four La Crosse area golf courses are relaxing golf cart usage rules beginning at 8 a.m., on Wednesday, April 29.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers previously restricted the use of golf carts with his COVID-19 emergency order. However, those rules were apparently loosened late Tuesday.
Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse, The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska, Trempealeau Mountain Golf Club in Trempealeau and Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen will offer golf carts beginning on Wednesday.
In a statement from Cedar Creek PGA professional and general manager Dave Cornelius on Tuesday, "The use of golf carts are allowed. This will include homeowner carts. One rider on each cart unless the two people in the cart are from the same household."
Trempealeau Mountain issued a similar statement:   
Golfers may rent golf carts and push carts.Rentals must be paid for on-line or by phone.Golfers may use their own personal carts, if season pass trail fee purchased and approved by general manager.
Single rider carts only unless two people are from the same household. Those two may share a golf cart.
Limited number of carts based upon availability.
Drugan's Castle Mound co-owner Mike Drugan said no one is allowed in the golf shop, tee times must made over the phone, carts are available (1 rider per cart) and payments are to be made through "hands free" credit cards. Beverages and food may be consumed on the course.  
"Nothing has really changed, except anyone can use a cart, not just people who cannot walk the course, Drugan said. "Also, we sanitize the golf carts after every use."
Other La Crosse area golf courses are sure to ease cart rules, too.
Keith Stoll, PGA pro and general manager at Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse, said cart use has been running quite smoothly so far.
"We are going to continue offering golf carts on a first-come, first-serve basis. We've had good success with that the last two days," Stoll said. "Players just pay at the walkup snack bar window when they are checking in."
