An Ontario Golf Course Illegally Reopened 'At Full Capacity' On The Weekend

A golf course in London defied Ontario's shutdown orders this weekend by reopening and booking up its weekend tee sheet "at full capacity."

The Bridges At Tillsonburg saw 115 golfers over the course of the weekend, reports The Toronto Star, and the business took to Facebook to thank patrons for their "overwhelming support."

"It's been wonderful to witness our community and those who support our community come together and safely play the sport we all love so much," read the Facebook post.

According to The Star, none of the 115 golfers present at The Bridges over the weekend received fines or charges. Narcity has reached out to the Southwestern Public Health Unit to confirm this and will update the story when we hear back.

Golfers in Ontario have taken issue with the ban on the sport, petitioning and protesting for their right to tee off.
