Multiple golfers have been charged after ignoring stay-at-home orders this weekend at the Bridges of Tillsonburg Golf Club.

The golf course, which opened "at full capacity" last weekend, welcomed customers back again. However, police were on the scene to lay some charges.

According to Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), 19 golfers were charged between Saturday and Sunday and face fines of $750 for not complying with an order and/or $1,000 for preventing other people from following an order.

Derek Rogers, regional media relations coordinator of the OPP West Region Headquarters, told Narcity that the business has been charged three times as well for reopening under the stay-at-home order.

Currently, golf courses are not permitted to open. However, the shutdown order has been met with multiple golfers protesting and petitioning.
