The World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Fla., which has been closed since March because of concerns created by the Coronavirus pandemic, announced that it will reopen next Monday.
However, the Hall of Fame will have social distancing regulations in place and will limit the museum to 25 percent of its normal capacity.
And the Imax Theater will be closed.
“The staff has done a great job the past couple of weeks of getting everything ready that when guests begin coming on Monday they will be able to feel comfortable that they are coming into a facility that has taken all of the necessary precautions to make sure they have a safe and enjoyable atmosphere,” said Brodie Waters, World Golf Hall of Fame vice president.
“We will have social distancing throughout the museum we will have put in hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the museum and we have limited some of the touch screens.”
Northeast Florida residents or anyone who plays a round of golf one of the local golf courses within three days of attending the museum will get 50 percent off the price of admission, and World Golf Hall of Fame is recognizing the service of first responders and frontline workers by giving them free admission.
In addition, children 12 and under will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticketed adult, with a limit of two children per adult.
Tiger Woods, female golf pioneer Marion Hollins, former PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem and four-time LPGA Tour major champion Susie Maxwell Berning were elected to the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020, but their induction date has been postponed until 2021 because of the Covid-19 crisis.
