Mill Creek, Stambaugh golf courses closed as coronavirus precaution

People who want to stretch their legs during Ohio’s Stay at Home order won’t be able to do it at a couple of the Valley’s golf courses.

Mill Creek MetroParks announced on Monday that the Mill Creek Golf Course on West Golf Drive, Boardman, will be closed to the public through at least Sunday, April 5, 2020,

A statement from the park says the closure is due to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s “Stay at Home” order in an effort to help control the spread of the COVID-19 Virus.

For similar reasons, the Youngstown Health Department is restricting public access to the Henry Stambaugh golf course on Gypsy Lane.
