As the COVID-19 pandemic wears on and businesses gradually start to reopen, we have to continue to prioritize safety in public spaces. Wearing a face mask and social distancing when you’re outside your home is the best way to reduce the spread of germs and keep yourself and the people around you healthy. Most states have mask requirements that mandate mask use in public establishments.
At Calabasas Country Club, we require masks out of consideration for the safety and well-being of our community. Our staff are ready to provide masks and gloves for anyone who needs them so everyone can enjoy our facilities without worry. If you’re planning a trip down to our beautiful golf course, you might be concerned about finding a mask that allows you to move and breathe comfortably. Fortunately, we know exactly what kind of face masks you can wear while playing golf so you can breathe easily and play on.
What to look for
When buying masks for golf, comfort should be your top priority. No one wants to wear a mask that makes breathing and talking difficult, especially if you’re going to be hitting the golf course. You want masks you can wear for hours at a time that won’t restrict your movement or distract you from your swing.
Cotton based masks are breathable, lightweight, and machine washable, making them a good option for any golfer. You may want to look for a mask with adjustable ear loops or a flexible nose piece. This will help keep your mask securely in place so you can focus on the game. Some masks also come with pockets for filter inserts or built in UV protection for sunny days on the green.
Try it at home first
Everyone has a different opinion about what the best masks for exercising are, but we all want something that has long usage and keeps us safe. Regardless of what kind of mask you prefer, we recommend you test your new masks before heading out to the course. Make sure you can breathe and speak comfortably before you go golfing.
We are in the midst of a difficult time, and we should all do our part to keep our communities safe. But safety and comfort don’t have to be mutually exclusive. We’re here to help you find the mask that’s right for you, so you can get back to all the things you love to do. Visit our website to learn more about why golf is the perfect social distancing sport.
