Local golf association said private clubs are flouting the law.

The Kalamazoo Municipal Golf Association is preparing to reopen its golf courses May 1.

The organization manages three public golf courses in Kalamazoo: Milham Park Golf Course; Eastern Hills Golf Club; and Red Arrow Golf Course. All have been closed since Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued the stay-at-home order for non-essential businesses April 9.
