To-go beers set to return to Oklahoma golf courses, marinas

The Associated Press - April 13, 2019 8:29 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Golfers in Oklahoma will again be allowed to take beer or wine onto the course.
Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill Wednesday that closes a loophole in a voter-approved law that took effect October 1st, allowing the sale of strong beer in the state. That law allowed beer and wine to be drunk only on the premises of where they were sold, prohibiting golfers from taking it to-go from the clubhouse to the course.
The bill also makes exceptions to allow boaters to take alcohol from marinas.
Businesses must obtain an as-yet-undeveloped permit for sales before beer can be taken on the course.
The Oklahoman has reported that the change was among priorities for officials in Oklahoma City, where there are five municipal golf courses.
