Following Doug Ford's decision to shut down Ontario's golf courses as part of the new restrictions that were announced on Friday, golf enthusiasts are refusing to stay silent.

A petition has amassed more than 25,000 signatures as of Monday morning and it's not the only one of its kind, either.

"Closing down golf courses in Ontario is unnecessary and irresponsible," the petition states.

Protestors were even spotted at Queen's Park with their golf bags in tow, exercising their democratic right to call on the province to reverse the decision.

The President and CEO of GolfNorth Properties in Conestogo even penned a letter to provincial leaders, stating that Ontario is the only state or province in North America to ban the sport, which "has proven itself to be safe [and] accessible" throughout the pandemic.
