OROVILLE, Calif. -- Not even a light drizzle is stopping golfers from playing at Table Mountain Golf Course.

"They're sanctuaries at a time where people are all freaked out," said longtime golfer Russ Adams, who goes by Smiley in the community.

Many courses in the north state are closed as the coronavirus pandemic grows. Table Mountain is the exception thanks to precautions they've set for visiting golfers.

First Assistant Golf Professional Mike Nogavich says, "...we started realizing 'hey we've got to get people separated. we don't want this stuff spreading."

He added, "...we took all of the chairs out of the dining facility. You can still get to-go orders, you can get your food and go outside and sit down on the curb or take it to your cart so that we can still keep people separated."

On the course, Table Mountain also raised the cups over an inch off the ground. If the ball hits the barrier around the cup, it's considered holed. This helps prevent people from reaching into the cup when retrieving the ball.

Changes like thse, are appreciated by golfers like Smiley.

"This is a healthy environment and the Governor said we should be outside. People aren't so close together like they are in other sports. It's the greatest."
