Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been hard for humans and dogs alike to find safe activities to keep us healthy, active, and entertained. Flying across the country is not necessarily safe just yet, and dog parks and beaches are overcrowded with other pet-owners looking to keep their dogs active. Thankfully, many golf courses are still open for business, and some even allow your dog to join you on the course. Gear up for a road trip with your dog to get you both out and about. Here are a few dog-friendly golf courses to travel to this summer.
Belgrade Lakes Golf Course
Located in Belgrade Lakes, Maine, this golf course offers 18-holes with views of the tree-filled and rocky coastal line. This golf course is one of the top courses in the state of Maine and allows your dog to join you for the ride. Your dog can even be leash-free if they respond to voice commands.
Discovery Bay Golf Course
Discovery Bay is an 18-hole course with beautiful sites of Washington for you and your dog to enjoy. Surrounded by Cascade and Olympic mountain range views, Discovery Bay is one of Washington’s oldest golf courses. Leashed dogs are welcome to join golfers on the course, and there is even a dog-friendly restaurant down the street to refresh yourself after a long round.
Emerald Isle Golf Course
Located in Oceanside, California, this course sits inside a landscape of tree-lined greens and natural lakes. Your dog can count on receiving a bowl of water and a biscuit at the golf shop, and it’s welcome to join you on the course and in your cart for a round.
Riverdale Country Club
Riverdale Country Club is one of the most distinctive courses you can play with your dog. Riverdale Country Club is in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and has hosted the PGA Championships twice. The Club welcomes you and your pets to experience a professional golf course together and to make friends with their dog, Carly the Aussiedoodle.
