The seasonal maintenance staff came back to work for the summer months at the Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club in Powell, Ohio, where Rob Fisher is the superintendent. Fisher realized he did not have enough turf vehicles for one crew member per vehicle per social distancing guidelines, so he improvised unique cart dividers. He purchased 6-gauge clear plastic for 71-inch by 71-inch shower curtains at Target for $6 each. Golf cart control ropes were placed through the curtain holes and three small set screws mounted the curtains to the tops with ease. Two crew members can now ride together safely divided by also closing the folding windshield. Total installation time took about 20 minutes per vehicle.
