(WXYZ) — Golf courses in Michigan will be allowed to use carts, according to the Small Business Association of Michigan.

Previously, while golf courses were allowed to be open, people couldn't use carts unless they had a disability.

According to the Michigan Golf Course Association, the SBAM addressed the question and learned more from the state Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity.

"They are allowed, but like with all outdoor recreational facilities there are mitigation measures that need to be implemented," the email said. "Additionally, clubhouses and dining halls in golf establishments are still closed."

According to the email, it is up to each club to make decisions about whether or not to allow golf carts to be used.
