Golfers, courses petitioning after Governor closes courses as non-essential

AUGUSTA, MAINE (WABI) - Governor Janet Mills has labeled golf courses as non-essential. It closes them statewide even after some like Hermon Meadow were opened last week for the season.

There is a petition on the internet going around to challenge golf courses can be used and not pose a health risk during the Coronavirus pandemic.
