Dear Rich Cleveland,
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my opinion regarding this new ground breaking safety device: the Golf Safer Protective Shield. My name is Kitonga Kiminyo and I’ve been an Infectious Diseases physician in Palm Beach county for the last eighteen years. Unfortunately we have all been swept up in this current Corona virus pandemic which has devastated not only the health of our residents but affected the business industry significantly. As we slowly restart our lives and reopen our outdoor activities, we are still left anxious about the safety of gathering together in our recreational activities like golf. Florida has the most golf courses than any other state and we have not had any device in the golf industry built to maintain our safety under this pandemic…until now!
The Golf Safer Protective Shield is truly a work of smart engineering and safety. I had the chance to see this device first hand at the Winston Trails Golf Club and I was truly amazed at its simple but effective design. Made with marine grade material, the Golf Safer Protective Shield is a clear, detachable, weatherproof barrier that fits between the two riders in your typical golf cart. The most impressive aspect about the barrier is its ability to be cleaned with a sanitizing solution or disinfectant between use. This device drastically reduces the chances of any droplet exposure from a fellow golfer sitting next to you in the same golf cart. As an infectious disease physician, I would use this device along with the recommended precautions (mask, hand hygiene) when sharing a golf cart with another individual. The Golf Safer Protective Shield is truly an innovative barrier device during this pandemic and a good option in the future of the golf industry.
